Gollinger Wasserfall

Reviewed By eilonglen - Ashkelon, Israel

Our first major stop on our way from Vienna Airport to Salzburg, was to the tiny hamlet of Golling, conveniently situated just off the highway, and famous for its prominent Waterfalls. After a week of continuous rains, we expected to view a fair quantity flowing down the steep and narrow Salzach River, but were blown away by the massively powerful volume of this furiously impressive waterfall, consisting of an upper and a lower cascade descending the sheer cliff-side. For the hike-challenged, one really need not proceed to the upper cascade, as the lower one is more than sufficiently impressive...
A brief and easy hike from the attractive entry-way, guarded by an affable and helpful local who took a nominal entry-fee from us, this short climb was well-worth the trouble of tracing the site through the streets of the village and up the mountain-side. The trail is safe and protected by a guard-rail most of the way, making it user-friendly for most age-groups, but be sure to carry a brolly or a rain-jacket against the powerful spray, and sturdy footwear is well-recommended. On your way out, spotless toilets and an attractive gift shop, also offering light snacks, provide added value. Lovely first glimpse of the Salzkammergut...

Bluntautal Valley

Reviewed By dennisgL3102TR - Alnwick, United Kingdom

We had not visited Bluntautal for a number of year as much of the walk in under trees which will drip water if wet, even after the rain! This year, the weather was dry and we enjoyed our walk to the lake which was very calm.
The lake is fed with melt water from the surrounding Mountains which gives it its characteristic blue colour and is crystal clear so you can watch the fish swimming around. Fishing is permitted and the lone angler caught a fish (trout like) while we were there. There were a few other people, mainly young mums with prams, but nothing disturbed the tranquility!

The spa Aqua Salza is right outside the Golling village surrounded by the Mountains .There is a bus connection from Salzburg or from the Golling-Abtenau railway station.I usually walk from the train; it takes about 20 minutes. The spa is a big complex of swimming pools,massage and beauty parlor, a restaurant and saunas.I only go to sauna.Saunas there are many and there is even animation.: Aufguss-ceremony with different oils or salt.For me the best part are the saunas outdoors.The view to the Mountains awesome.There is also a heated outdoor swimming pool. .Indoor there are also steam baths.This time I took the early bird tariff:Sauna from 10-14 and 2 towels (Euro 21.50).Saunas are mixed and textile free.

Pfarrkirche St. Johannes der Taufer und St. Johannes der Evangelist

Reviewed By hbf_melb - Melbourne, Australia

Surprised there is not more reviews, this locations simply took my breath away!
Early for Winter, we came on the train from Salzburg to find snow and look around.
The most beautiful village ever, the main strip leads up to the church, and then you turn the corner into the cemetery and wow, the views! What a beautiful place to rest eternal!

St. Nikolaus in Torren

Reviewed By 748Rita - Aarhus, Denmark

Fantastisk oplevelse at besøge denne kirke. Jeg bad om registrering på Tripadvisor, så den hurtigst muligt kan bidrage til, at endnu flere turister får lyst at bestige bjerget og se kirken ligesom os.
Kirken er fredet og er en valfartskirke.
Kirken ligger højt på en klippe, og der er een vej derop, og det er af en stor stentrappe, hvor man følger klippevæggen.
Kirken ligger på et stort grønt område af uslået græs. Det ser smukt ud, og udsigten fra klippen
Kirken er fredet, og skiltet, som man ser mange steder i Østrig, hænger på væggen ved indgangen.
Orglet menes at være det ældste i Østrig og stammer fra 1613.
Kirken er indviet i 1517, men har historie tilbage til 1139.
Ved udgravninger er der gjort fund, som er på museet i Golling.
Der er renoveret inde i kirken i 2010 for 100.000 euro.
En lille hyggelig kirke med plads til en del mennesker. Der er også en udendørs prædikestol.
Gad vide, hvilke arrangementer man måske også afholder på dette smukke sted og formentlig har afholdt.

Очень красивая природная достопримечательность - озеро, вода в котором настолько чистая, что кажется зеленой от отражающихся в ней деревьев и водорослей на дне. Очень живописное место.

Torrent-Outdoors

Reviewed By Michaela A - Saarland, Germany

Habe mit einem Freund zusammen ein Kombipaket gebucht mit 2 Canyoning Touren und einer Rafting Tour. Die Beratung im Vorfeld war sehr freundlich und individuell (ganz im Gegenteil zu anderen lokalen Anbietern) man nahm sich Zeit um auf einen einzugehen und die optimalen Touren zu finden.
Die Guides sind alle sehr nett, super drauf und verstehen ihr Handwerk exzellent! Klare Empfehlung an alle die gerne draußen aktiv sind oder ein adrenalingeladenes Abenteuer suchen! Für jeden gibt es eine passende tour!
