Spa Weekend in the Salzburg Countryside: Relaxation with an Alpine View
A spa weekend in the Austrian Alps is an excellent opportunity to relax and enjoy natural diversity. The countryside surrounding Salzburg is blanketed with acres of pine trees, whilst the Attersee, Austria's largest inland lake, known to be an inspiration for Austrian symbolist painter Gustav Klimt, is just around the corner. These azure blue waters are home to several sites of historic interest, and can be crossed thanks to sailing, rowing and paddle boats that are available to hire.

The idyllic alpine panorama begs the visitor to make the most of the many golf courses in the vicinity and on the grounds of the Austrian Alps' spa hotels, or to enjoy the enchanting natural habitats on foot or by bike.
