Winter holiday in your own authentic Austrian st martin chalets in Salzburg Lungau, one of the most beautiful and unspoilt areas in Austria, which is still very much the same today as it has been for decades. No long lift queues, quiet slopes, no hectic, loads of sunshine and crystal-clear mountain air. Lungau is right in the heart of Austria’s Southern Alps and enjoys snowfall from both the north and the south, which makes ours one of the most snow-sure resorts in Austria. A wide-ranging network of winter hiking paths also invites our wintertime guests to set out on unforgettable winter snow-shoe hikes and tobogganing adventures.

Culture and tradition in Salzburg Lungau

St Michael is a working Austrian village unlike some of the other regions of the Tyrol or French Alps. We’re most definitely not a man-made tourist village. Customs and traditions are cultivated and experienced. For example, the tradition of giant wooden Samson figures or the carrying the awesome 6-meter-high flower poles ‘Prangstangen’ is well known beyond the local area and are part of our cultural heritage. If you come in autumn, you can experience the cattle and sheep being driven down from the pastures. But behind all this tradition, St Michael is a working village. Forestry and agriculture are important sources of income as well as tourism. Costumes such as Lederhosen and Dirndl are part of everyday life because they are comfortable, hard-wearing and very attractive! Salzburg Lungau is a special place where time has stood stil where locals and guests sit together at one table and enjoy real homemade Austrian cuisine and atmosphere.
