Autumn in Salzburg’s Lungau
Enjoy the benefits of this colourful season
Now the time has come and the autumn has officially arrived in Salzburg’s Lungau. This can be seen not only in the unique play of colors in the colourful natural landscape but also in the many great traditional harvest decorations in our 15 villages. The temperatures are pleasantly cool and autmn draws a calm in the region. Autumn is full of opportunities for your very special holiday. In the following blog you can find some possibilities.
The diversity of our magic forests
The most people already know that the forest is good for their human health. In the autumn, however, a walk in the woods is much more than a relaxing stroll among large trees. In no other season is the forest that colourful and diverse. Varied leaves painted in the most amazing colours, delicious berries, Lungau’s chanterelles and varied mushrooms can be discovered and collected.
The summer may be over, but the hiking season is definitely not. The "golden season" is probably the highlight of the hiking year. During the ascent beautiful pictures are perceived and captured. Now that everything is changing, discolouring and getting ready for the winter is the perfect time for wonderful day or lake hikes.
Explore romantic side valleys by bike
The sunny Lungau’s high basin valley, which lies at over 1,000 m above sea level, is a paradise for pleasure cyclists. Star-shaped, like the spokes of a wheel, the romantic Lungau’s side valleys spread out and wait to be cycled. The fresh autumn air and the colourful panorama almost seduce you to do fantastic bike rides.
The sky is not always bright blue and cloudless in autumn. This season is also known for its cozy, gray and rainy cuddly days. Nature allows herself in those days a break - you should treat yourself and your body every now and then. Relax in the pool, with a spa treatment or with a healthy sauna.
Varied culinary art
Autumn provides the Lungau’s kitchens with the most delicious natural products from the local forests and fields. Mushrooms, berries, dishes of wild game, Schöpsernes (roast sheep) and especially our favourite, the Lungauer Eachtling (potato) may not be missing on the plates in the autumn time.
