Three mighty castles in Salzburg's Lungau invite you to get to know the history of the region in all its facets. Numerous legends and mystical goose bumps surround the buildings. And although they have long since become attractive museums and excursion destinations for the whole family, the stories seem to have remained alive within the old walls!
Today, moors, forests and mountain lakes are among the beautiful natural attractions in Salzburg's Lungau region. In earlier times, however, life in the southernmost region of SalzburgerLand was shaped by the great conquests of the Romans and Slavs. In the Lungau, two important roads from the south met and led across the Tauern mountains to the north.
"Mighty castle complexes still bear witness today to the strategically important position of the Lungau."
