Featuring a 150-kilometre network of cross-country skiing trails including floodlit trails for cross-country skiers and biathletes, a natural skating rink, the Snow & Fun Park for children, countless winter hiking paths and much more besides, it provides action-filled winter days amidst the Salzburg mountain landscape.

Bladl, the delicious Pinzgau speciality

If there were ever a characteristic Pinzgau meal, then it is surely the “Bladl” – dumplings made from rye flour that are fried and served with a potato and bacon filling, with sauerkraut or as a sweet dish with lingonberries (known locally as “Granggn”). There are still a number of traditional Pinzgau inns in which you can sample this speciality.
