Things to see in the Grossarltal area
There are many reasons that Salzburg is one of the most popular tourist regions in Austria. The old town quarter with its snow-covered roofs and domes radiates an atmosphere of tranquility and reflection as you wander around the town. But not only the city of Salzburg itself, but also the surrounding area has much to offer for young and old. In winter in Grossarl there is a great variety of excursions and sightseeing to suit every taste.
Be sure not to miss the aromas of spicy mulled wine and delicious gingerbread cakes at the Salzburg Mountain Advent celebrations in Grossarltal! A varied program of events for children including the Christmas Post Office and Christmas Cookie Bakery, provides plenty of things to see and do. Other highlights: Hiking by torchlight through the snowy mountain world and the parade of the evil creature of folklore, the "Krampus" in Grossarl.
Holzleb'n holiday village is only about an hour away from the city of Salzburg (80 km). The ideal place to experience the wonderful atmosphere at this time of the year with all the family! Regardless of whether you want to listen to the sounds of Mozart or enjoy a mulled wine in the picturesque surroundings of Hellbrunn Castle or wander around the Advent Market in the Cathedral Square.
When the temperature is chilly then the nearby thermal baths provide super leisure opportunities for young and old. In the Therme Amadé in Altenmarkt (34 km) it's fun to race down the loop chute and in the Alpentherme in Bad Hofgastein (42 km) you can enjoy exciting films in the water cinema, or simply relax in the spacious wellness world of the Felsentherme in Bad Gastein (49 km).
There is lots to discover in the Salt Mine Hallein (60 km). And it is fun too! Travel into the heart of the mountain comfortably by rail and then slide down to the underground lake on the miners' slides. The National Park Center in Mittersill (74 km) offers fascinating discovery tours for visitors of all ages.
... and of course, this is by no means not everything but only the beginning of things to experience in your winter vacation in Grossarl. We have many more tips for you when you arrive here.
