District capital in Salzburg's Lungau
In the border triangle of Carinthia, Styria and the southern SalzburgerLand, nestled in the gentle Nockberge mountains and the Hohe Tauern mountains, lies the Salzburg Lungau region with the small, fine district capital of TAMSWEG.
Tamsweg is located in the southernmost corner of Salzburger Land, at 1,024 m above sea level. The village has about 6,000 inhabitants and offers its visitors a great range of leisure activities in largely untouched nature. This wonderful natural landscape with its mountain peaks, lakes, streams and alpine meadows opens up countless opportunities to discover the UNESCO Biosphere Park Salzburg Lungau.
