The Kitzsteinhorn glacier in Kaprun and the giant ice caves at Werfen are just two of the many natural resources awaiting your incentive or your conference's side programme in the Region of Salzburg.
A promising name: salt-castle
Salzburg translated literally means salt-castle. The history of the city and province of Salzburg are closely linked to the white gold of the Alps. Salt was the backbone of the region's power. A visit to the salt mines in Hallein might explain a lot to your participants. Here, the prince archbishops dismantled the salt which made them wealthy and powerful.
In 1879, Salzburg naturalists made a fascinating discovery: the largest ice cave in the world. The cave system is 42 kilometres long and presents a giant world of ice for your attendees to explore. A visit could be combined with a rustic lunch at a hut or a medieval dinner at the fortress Hohenwerfen.
Salzburg offers both summer and winter attractions that make your event a memorable occurrence.
