OUR LUNGAU

HOLIDAYS IN THE SUNNY SOUTH OF SALZBURG

The “Ferienregion Lungau” is the number one place for family fun during the holidays: from toddlers to grandparents, everyone feels at home here! In the sunniest place in Austria you can expect clear and healthy air, impressive mountain landscapes and varied leisure activities. The Lungau, with its 15 idyllic villages, offers a particularly wind-protected location – nestled between “Radstädter Tauern” and the “Nockbergen” – as well as the ideal sea level of 1. 000 m on average, in summer as well as in winter perfect conditions for all who want to be active, enjoy and relax during their holidays! Just let your soul dangle and relax with your family or as a couple from everyday life.

Whether hiking, mountain biking, cycling, golfing in the summer or alpine skiing, touring skiing and cross-country skiing in the winter – the Lungau offers something for the whole family. The Lungau region is also an attractive vacation destination due to the wellness opportunities and extraordinary offers in the Lungau, such as “fabulous mountain lake hiking” in the Lungau Alpine summer, “Eachtling selber klauben”; in the Lungau Farmer’s Autumn. Those hungry for adventure will get their money’s worth with the many family programs, Lungau excursion destinations and family-friendly events.

Customs and tradition, as well as culture, are very important in the Lungau: In addition to museums, pilgrimage churches, old palaces and castles, the Lungau also offers unique customs that are the expression of a long tradition and have hardly changed at all to this day. Such as the Lungau Easter fire, the “Prangstangen processions” or the “Samson parades” and water target shooting at the Prebersee in the Lungau.

Mariapfarr is not only the sunniest place in Austria, but also a “Silent Night, Holy Night” parish. In 1816 Joseph Mohr wrote the lyrics to this probably most famous Christmas song in the world. Since 2018 the pilgrimage church in Mariapfarr was raised to basilica minor by Pope Francis.

Events such as the medieval festival, the “Samsonman running marathon”, a choir festival, the traditional Lungau family festival at the beginning of August, the “Tour de Mur”, “Samson parades” and much more are offered in the Lungau.
