Ski holidays in Salzburg

A holiday in Salzburg offers a rare opportunity to combine one of Europe's most fascinating cities with world-class skiing. At the heart of Salzburg you'll find a beautiful, baroque old town steeped in history, and 23 ski resorts at its fingertips. All are covered by one pass and each easy to ski in a day.

Salzburg is a city of contrasts, the eye-catching, colourful townhouses, awe-inspiring castles and opulent palaces are complemented by classical operas and symphonies played live. In the same streets you will find cutting edge nightclubs and stylish bars. Friendly pubs serve traditional Austrian cuisine and locally brewed beer, whilst critically acclaimed restaurants offer modern, European cuisine. The year-round skiing of Kaprun is an hour away by car or Salzburg Snow Shuttle. Austria's first glacier resort offers scenic, smooth cruising for skiers and a terrain park for freestyle skiers and snowboarders. Cross-country skiers will also be delighted to find trails atop the Kaprun glacier. Salzburg is a truly individual ski destination.
