Salzburg is a picturesque Austrian city which sits nestled between the white peaks of the Alps. Imagine the cleanest, freshest air, rolling green hills and dramatic snow-capped mountains and you're close to imagining Salzburg.
For skiing, holidays to Salzburg are an amazing choice, with 22 major ski regions in the area surrounding the city known as Salzburgerland. A Salzburg Super Ski Card will give you access to the entire 2550km ski area, meaning you can pick and choose your ski resorts until you find the one you like best.
Among the Salzburg ski regions you'll find excellent all-rounder Obertauern, one of the highest Alpen ski resorts where good snow conditions are pretty much guaranteed from Nov to May. There's also popular Schmitten/Zell Am See which boasts the world's longest Funslope, and Zillertal which has fantastic facilities for kids, including ski schools, snow tubing, snow discos and gentle slopes.
If you're more of a serious skier Kaprun and Kitzbuehel offer some nail-biting black run skiing to challenge your skills. Snowboarders are also remembered, with the amazing Salzburg Sportwelt resort which has numerous exciting board parks to choose from.
Salzburg city itself is beautifully presented, with an almost fairytale-like Old Town boasting the prettiest examples of baroque, renaissance and Romanesque architecture. As a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site, the Old Town, with its winding narrow streets, chocolate-box squares and traditional shops and cafes is well worth a wander.
Whether you're planning on staying in the city to enjoy the best of both a ski and city break, or you're simply passing through on your way to your mountain resort of choice, it would be shame not to spend at least a day or two discovering some of what Salzburg has to offer. Straddling the banks of the Salzach River, this pretty city is a masterpiece of ornamental bridges, elaborate cathedrals and churches, romantic architecture and beautiful town squares. For the best views of the pastel hued builds and fairy-story turrets, head out of the city on a mountain hike or cable car ride.
For skiers and snowboarders, Salzburg is a gateway to some of the best ski resorts in the Alps. And finding some time to explore the city itself would be the cherry on the cake.
