Salzkammergut

Photos – The Salzkammergut

A land of lakes, surrounded by mountains, the Salzkammergut is definitely one of Europe’s most beautiful places. The area is enhanced by its proximity to Salzburg, one of Europe’s most enchanting cities with a very special musical heritage. 

We enjoyed a wonderful week in the Salzkammergut in June 2009. Our group included several people who had traveled with us in Provence, and it was great to share another experience with old friends. This was an active week, including trips to the top of the two mountains on either side of beautiful Lake Wolfgang. One of the most memorable moments of our Salzkammergut Experience week was totally unexpected: the village parade celebrating the Austrian religious and public holiday Fronleichnam or Corpus Christi.
