Winter sports amidst the city

Possibilities in Salzburg's countryside

Skiing fun in the immediate vicinity

From the peak of the Unterberg (one of Salzburg's two city mountains), which you can comfortably reach via a funicular, there is a groomed ski slope that leads down into the valley to Fürstenbrunn. A public bus will take you back to the valley station.

The Gaisberg is very popular among experienced skiers, as it offers ungroomed and fast-paced slopes.

Salzburg Snow Shuttle

Every day, this bus escorts winter sports fans from the city centre straight to the slopes of Salzburg's countryside; it is accompanied by multilingual guides who will be more than happy to help you.

Ice-skating

In the city, there are ice planes located in the Old Town at Mozartplatz, as well as in the ice rink Eisarena in the Volksgarten. Very romantic: the city lakes Leopoldskroner mere and Salzachsee, which are often frozen, are also suitable for ice-skating.

Tobogganing / Sledging

The Mönchsberg next to Johannis-Schlössl, right in the city, is ideal for sledging - though of course the other city mountains are also suitable.
