Salzburgerland and Carinthia both share the Hohe Tauern National Park, a paradise for hikers and nature lovers. The City of Salzburg has long been a metropolis for superb music-making. It owes its fame partly to Mozart, born in the city's Getreidegasse, and to its annual summer festival.
The SalzburgerLand - with its primary river, the Salzach - lies between Upper Austria, Styria, Carinthia, Tyrol and Bavaria (Germany).
Running through the south are the main ranges of the Central Alps with numerous 3,000-meter peaks.
The greater part of Austria lies in the cool/temperate climate zone in which humid westerly winds predominate. With over half of the country dominated by the Alps the alpine climate is the predominant one.
There is an international airport at Salzburg served by several budget airlines.
