in Salzburg`s Lungau
The beauty of the Weisspriach Valley, perhaps the most gorgeous valley in the Lungau region, reveals itself to you immediately at the valley’s entrance with the unique Longa Mäander conservation area. Along the course of this creek, you’ll encounter many great opportunities to relax and take in the fresh air, wonderful sunshine, and crystal-clear mountain waters.
Nature and culture
The town of Weisspriach is situated at an elevation of 1,100 m. It is also an ideal starting point for several hiking trails, along which you’ll have a chance to stop and rest awhile amidst captivating mountain lakes and rustic huts. All year round, Weisspriach offers the best conditions for an interesting and restorative vacation.
When driving into the valley, you’ll reach a parking area from which you can take a short walk up to the edge of an idyllic hill farm setting. Cyclists can ride through the beautiful valley all the way to the Ulnhütte. The dirt road at the rearmost end of Weisspriach Valley offers leisurely hikers of all ages the chance to take a lovely, refreshing stroll. Weisspriach’s charming townscape is captured in the marvelous frescoes inside quaint little St. Rupert’s Church. These frescoes are among the oldest in Salzburg province.
An exciting, unique experience for anyone in any season: a ride through the valley on Icelandic horses lasting one day or several-days.
