Near the border with Germany, the Austrian city of Salzburg is the birthplace of musical virtuoso Mozart. The inner city is a UNESCO World Heritage monument, so there is a lot to see! It features gorgeous Baroque buildings and other historical highlights. And wherever you look, you will see the Austrian Alps on the horizon. That is also why Salzburg is a great place for winter sports. So pack your skis or snowboard and book your next winter sports holiday or city break with Transavia Holidays.

Salzburg Airport is at the foot of the Alps and next to the city. So you can access the region’s many snow-covered ski resorts in no time at all. Berchtesgadener Land is only 15 minutes away, for example. The resort is particularly good for beginners. Though experienced skiers will also have a great time here, partly thanks to the breathtaking view over Salzburg. Werfenweng is about a 30-minute drive. This ski resort is perfect for the whole family and features special practice lifts. Another nearby popular winter sports destination is Hochkönig. Fanatic skiers and snowboarders are mainly attracted by the great variety of terrain and the charming villages. Drive a little further to Salzburger Sportwelt. This large ski resort has various slopes for beginners and more experienced winter sports enthusiasts. So most ski resorts are not in the immediate vicinity of Salzburg, but rent a car and you will be there in no time!
Looking for a cultural excursion in between all the fun in the snow? Then Salzburg is the perfect city. Churches, castles, palaces and other picturesque sights provide an enchanting experience. Admire Fortress Hohensalzburg, for example, one of the largest medieval castles in Europe. This 900-year old walled fortress towers high above the city. And if you are visiting Salzburg, make sure to take a peek at the house where Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born. Another highlight is the magnificent Salzburg Cathedral, where Mozart was baptised.
Ready to warm up after a fun day in the wintery cold? About an hour’s drive from Salzburg, you will find various spas with wonderful thermal baths. Therme Amadé has 11 indoor and outdoor baths, including baths with healing salts and panoramic baths with an unparalleled view over the Alps. The views are just as beautiful at Tauern Spa Zell am See-Kaprun. This is a modern spa for the whole family. A little closer to Salzburg is Heiltherme. This is a spa with mineral water that comes from a depth of 1,345 metres. A wonderfully relaxing spot to completely unwind. You will be refreshed, rejuvenated and warm when you return to the slopes.
