the insider tip in the Salzburger Lungau Region, for people with an affinity for nature.
In Salzburg's sunny south at 1,025 m above sea level, Unternberg offers an affordable summer or winter alternative in the heart of UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Salzburger Lungau. Holidays in Unternberg are all about pure relaxation thanks to friendly hosts and well-equipped, family-style accommodations.
The small village of Unternberg is an ideal base in summer for hiking, Nordic walking as well as cycling and mountain bike tours. Guests who enjoy outdoor sports definitely find what they are looking for, here amid the mountains of Lungau.
In winter, you will have no problems reaching the local Unternberg ski area, always-snowy Aineck-Katschberg, either with your own car or using the convenient ski bus. All of the surrounding ski areas in Salzburger Lungau are likewise just a matter of minutes away. You will be able to enjoy winter sports in clear, healthy mountain air and on beautifully prepared pistes. As an alternative, you might choose to go cross-country skiing, take a romantic ride on a horse-drawn sleigh, set out on a winter hike along one of the cleared paths, or try your hand at the traditional sport known as "ice stock", on the frozen village pond under the lights.
Schloss Moosham is the third-largest castle in Salzburg province and the No.1 cultural attraction in Lungau, offering guided tours of its famous Castle Museum throughout the year. Due to Unternberg's central location in UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Salzburger Lungau, many excursion destinations for the whole family are easy to reach. In addition, you will be able to experience living folk traditions, such as the parade with the giant Samson figure and his dwarf companions, crafts made by the hands of local artists, as well as community celebrations during high summer and Harvest Festival in the Lungau.
The airfield for remote-control planes, located just below Schloss Moosham, is a true paradise for R/C pilots, one of the most beautiful of its kind in Austria and a gathering spot for hobby aviators from near and far.
