UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Salzburg´s Lungau
A deeply rooted living environment with distinctive traditions and a high level of biodiversity, the Lungau region in the sunny south of SalzburgerLand has proudly been recognized as UNESCO`s “Salzburger Lungau and Kärntner Nockberge Biosphere Reserve”. Ever since, UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Salzburg´s Lungau can be mentioned in the same breath as Yellowstone National Park, the Galapagos Islands and Australia’s Ayers Rock. The international UNESCO title distinguishes particularly valuable living areas. Lungau offers a unique combination of real, living traditions, authentic, genuine people, modern infrastructure and breathtaking nature. Austria`s third and largest biosphere reserve is considered a model region for sustainable development.
