If you love skiing, it is probably not necessary to introduce you to the resort of Skicircus, above the villages ofSaalbach, Hinterglemm and Leogang, the republic of Salzburg. This one is the best Austria can offer you. Despite the weather wasn’t as we would like it to be (as it is apparent from the pictures) we still enjoyed its 200 kms of ski slopes.

In the second half of the 19th century, King Ludwig II ruled Bavaria. After his rule, our western neighbors were left with an unfinished mansion, designed as a copy of French Versailles, remained on Chiemsee island. It doesn't matter that it's just a torso of the original plans. The perfect blend of beautiful natural habitat, opulent castle and gardens with the exciting story of an eccentric monarch attracts right attention.
We chose to travel along paid Grossglockner Hochalpenstrasse road, a mountain freeway that is 48 kilometers long. But due to various turns and stops it would be quite long…
Alpine air, mountains, lakes, and the peaks of majestic giants, and Dachstein glacier in the background. Such are the moments you can experience at Katrin ferrate that is at the altitude of 1542 meters.
In case you are looking for a more complex ferrate then visit Drachenwand in the Austrian Alps. To get grandiose look over Mondsee and Dachstein you need to be physically fit, have inner strength and experience. Thanks to this you will enjoy your climb up the Dragon Wall (Drachenwand) and also the view of the Alps.
The winter is here but there is not much snow in our country. If you are not satisfied with our pistes covered with artificial snow then go to the Alps.
Last time we introduced you a family ski resort. Were the red ski slopes not enough for your skiing ambitions and you prefer black ski slopes then move 100 kilometers to the southwest where is the fabulous town of Saalbach (460 km from Prague).
After riding down the slopes around Saalbach we move to mountain Wildenkarkogel’s northern ridge. We follow the directions to Leogang.

If you love skiing and snowboarding and you are not beginners, then go to Kitzsteinhorn. It is a glacier in the Alpes in the Hohe Tauern. Snow is there all year long. Kitzsteinhorn is 3203 meters high and situated to the north from the highest mountain in Austria - Grossglockner.

Today, we head to the picturesque Austrian village of Ischgl in the Land of Tyrol (Landeck), which stretches right below the world-famous ski resort of Silvretta Arena Ischgl-Samnaun in the Paznaun valley.
Me and my friend decided to make a trip. The planning was great. I had look around in many handbooks, searched for inspiration on travel agencies’ websites and so on. Eventually, we agreed upon seeing a beautiful place near Salzburg. The village of Abtenau which would serve as the base for our trips around.

If you belong to fans of winter sports, it is not necessary to reintroduce you to Skicircus resort. It is one of the best ski areal in neighboring Austria
Winter is here again. For some, it is perhaps too cold and harsh, but to me it is the most popular season of the year. Everything is hidden under a fluffy white blanket of snow and acts somewhat calmer, and even cleaner than the rest of the year. It is also a time of winter holidays in the mountains, meeting with friends over a glass of mulled wine or it is a time of a great cabbage soup, which will warm you up in this season.
This winter was not rich on snow. Those who love winter sports had a hard time in finding places suitable for an active winter vacation.
