The Upper Austria/Salzkammergut region

The lakeside village of St Gilgen is set amidst an array of mountains. The region is perfect for ski-ing, snowboarding and tobogganing in the winter and walking, hiking, cycling, paragliding and sailing in the summer. All year round, St Gilgen is ideal for those looking for a cultural break. In the village you can visit Mozart's mothers house, the church where his sister was married, as well as a museum on the life of Mozart.

In St Gilgen itself, you can ski on the slopes of the Zwolferhorn mountain. The cable car is just a 5-10 minute walk from the apartment.

There are also the ski areas of the Postalm and Hintersee, which are within a 40 minute drive. For those who do not wish to drive, you can take the daily ski bus to the Postalm. The Dachstein ski area is approx 1 hour away and offer excellent skiing for all abilities.

The Postalm is very much a family ski area and the selection of runs are suitable for both beginners and more experienced ski-ers.

The Hintersee slopes are more challenging and are not used by the package holiday operators, which makes for less crowded slopes and good ski-ing for intermediates and experienced alike.

St Gilgen

St Gilgen is a typical Austrian village, very friendly with lots of pretty individual houses and shops. Please be aware that most of the year the local SPAR supermarket closes on Sunday. The exception to this is during July/August when there is a limited opening time on a Sunday morning (until 11am). There is a good choice of restaurants, all offering a selection of fresh fish from the lake. In the summer, the lake can be enjoyed for swimming, sailing and other water sports or a cruise around the lake in one of the paddle steamers which call at all the other lakeside villages. There is also crazy golf in the village and bicycles are available for hire. In winter, skis and ski clothing can be hired and within the village itself there is a choice of gentle slopes for first time skiers to practice on the Laimerfield (also for tobogganing/sledges), or for the more advanced skiers, there are the slopes of the Zwolferhorn mountain, set on the edge of St Gilgen and accessed by the cable car from the village station.. The Postalm and Dachstein ski arenas are both perfect for family skiing and caters for the beginner to the more advanced skier. Ski/boot hire is available in both locations.. The local bus to Bad Ischl (change at Strobl for the ski bus) leaves at 0910, 1110 and 1220 in high season (journey time about 45 mins to Postalm/1 hour to Dachstein). The beautiful and historic city of Salzburg is just 30 minutes drive from St Gilgen. Salzburg is most famous for the magnificent composer Mozart and also for the classic film 'The Sound of Music'. In Salzburg you can enjoy a wonderful Mozart dinner concert, take a horse and carriage ride around the old city, visit the Fortress, the Mirabell Gardens, the Palace or just enjoy the wonderful shopping, the gluwein and Christmas stalls.
