Konigstour

Reviewed By SakuKim

when preparing this trip I find most valuable information on the official website www.koenigstour.at and also on the Ski Amadé website and choosing Hochkönig as area for skiing. The entire 32 km tour is not for beginners but we started with skiing in the Mühlbach area which has black, red and blue slopes with the highest peak at 1822m over sea level. The free of charge buses also take us to Arthurhaus nearby which also had very nice slopes. You can start Königstour from either Mühlbach, Dienten, Hinterthal, Hintermoos or Maria Alm which gives the freedom of choice where to find an apartment or hotel. The entire length of slopes is 150km related to these villages. Königtour itself is a tour between all these villages and during this tour you dont ski the same slope twice. The highest point on this tour is 1900m over sea level. We usually start skiing after 10.00 each morning in mid-March but it would be better at 08.00 as the airtemperature raises very soon from -1 to +6 celcius in morning. The sun is very intensive and the snow gets soon wet which can require better physical conditions from the attendees. The tour itself can take half day and even longer by resting along the tour at restaurants who offer great scenic views, service and food. We enjoy this trip very much in will come back with entire family.

Ideal for beginners and medium skiers, but also advanced skiers will find a range of slopes at their disposal.

Although the ski terrain is lovely, the people (especially the ticket people ) are very rude unless you are either German or Austrian. They allow these people to push through and don't organise the queues. They are more interested in maximising the money they make rather than the long term. Stay well away if you are foreign.

Schloss Goldegg

Reviewed By Noemi G - London, United Kingdom

I was visiting relatives and have spent a couple of days at this hotel.
The room was absolutely spottles, never seen such a clean hotel room in any of my travels. One morning I met with the lady (Susy) and she is also very friendly and kind.
Breakfast is plenty, was beautifully layed everything, very delicious and the young gentleman was very proffessional and funny.
This little town is amazing if you want to escape from big cities. People are friendly and helpful. You are surrounded by Mountains perfect for hiking where you reach Alms (tiny place with one or two tables where you can rest, have a snack and/or drink and enjoy the amazing view).
There is a lake as well, you can swim during summer time, also an old castle which is a museum today.
Thank you for your hospitality, Im sure I'll be back soon.

Wagrain Grafenberg

Reviewed By Nir L

We were here with two kids (6,8) and they loved (!!!) it.
Just before the cable car ride the kids get to see Wagrini (with some candies). The ride itself is very nice and you can start seeing the beautiful views of the surrounding Mountains.
Once you arrive there's a big playground, right in front of you, with a big trampoline, a small lake with rafts, bridge and rocks to cross it.
From this point, there's a nice trail with great views for us and numerous special Playgrounds that mesmerize the kids, they can hang there forever...
We loved it and we've spent there about half a day.

Because my set of skies has been stolen on Monday in Kaprun, than I have to use this servise. Everything was OK. I picked up the rented set in on town and returned in another one after three days as agreed.

St. Maximillian

Reviewed By Miha P - Maribor, Slovenia

Oldest church in Bischofshofen stands near the Rathaus – Town hall. You can recognize it because of a square tower. It is less interesting outside. When you enter, you can see very good presentation of combination of Romanesque, Gothic and later architecture, some fine altars with old sculptures, paintings on the northern wall and a Renaissance tombstone of a bishop from Chiemsee.

Eisriesenwelt

These magnificent underground ice caves located outside of Salzburg are some of the largest of their kind in the world.

Reviewed By NeilandBarbara - Wirral UK

There's plenty of parking, though it does fill up fast and you may have to walk further. It's a 20 min hard walk from the entrance booth to the cable car, then a further 20 min walk to the cave entrance. It was steep and hot and we were very tired by the time we got to the entrance (we are over 60 now). We were taken into the cave in fairly large groups. When they open the cave door, the freezing air rushes out - it's a dramatic start. Inside the cave is wonderful. There's no electric lighting, so you carry oil lamps. It's very atmospheric. The guide spoke in English then German. He was very good. There's 700 steps up and then then 700 down. It's certainly not for young children or those with disability.One couple were carrying a young child, and were advised to go back. You do have to be careful and watch your footing on the steps. It was a hard and hot day in 30C+ temperature and walking up the steep slopes, but the views both inside the cave and outside are fabulous. The guide said no photos, but I sneaked a few without any flash.

Eisriesenwelt Ice Cave

Reviewed By cleoch - Geneva, Switzerland

I took a private tour minibus from Salzburg, which cost about €80, but it was well worth it to be picked up from the hotel and taken directly to the cave ticket office. The driver then waited to pick us up afterwards and return us to Salzburg. Unfortunately I've forgotten the name of the company (and the very informative driver we had, who was from Hyderabad, India), as he told us that his firm is now the only one doing this "taxi" service. Other tour operators offer private guides to the caves, at much higher cost.
The guidebooks say you have to be "moderately fit" to do the walk up to the ice caves but, having observed a number of people struggling, you need to know that even taking the gondola there are two quite long and steep upward climbs to get to the entrance and then it is 700 steps up quite soon afterwards (and of course 700 steps down). Once at the cave entrance you have to wait for a sizeable group to accumulate (separate English and German), but I did not have to wait more than a quarter of an hour, time to put on warm clothes and acclimatize. The groups are quite big (30+?) so if you want to hear the guide it's best to stick close to the front.
When thinking about what to wear, gloves are a good idea as you may be touching metal railings and lamps at freezing temperature.
I was slightly disappointed that the caves were not better lit, so you do not see the ice "sculptures" as they appear on the postcards. The guides use magnesium strips which provide a weak light for less than a minute. Permanent lights are not used as they would raise the temperature inside the caves, but I noticed that the group behind us seemed to have a better lighting system that lasted for longer. Still, the caves are very impressive and it was a fascinating and memorable visit.

Liechtensteinklamm

Due to a rockfall, the gorge Liechtensteinklamm is closed for the entire season 2017. We apologize for any inconveniences! The gorge Liechtensteinklamm, one of the longest and deepest white water gorges in the Alps, is an outing destination for the whole family, located only 30 min away from the City of Salzburg. This natural phenomenon in the heart of Salzburg is well worth the visit the whole summer.

Reviewed By SarahUK_259 - Battle, United Kingdom

We visited here today, it was absolutely lovely. It has been raining recently, the water was rushing down the gorge. I do not know if this is more than usual but it was incredibly powerful. I used the word "wow" more than once! I enjoyed the walk up and back, sturdy footwear is recommended as the wooden platforms can be a little slippy.
Take your time and enjoy the views, you won't see this every day.
