The city is always well worth a visit, but the landscapes further from the city allow just as many lasting impressions of the beauty of nature. Enjoy a relaxed walk in a stunning setting, or challenge yourself to reach the summit of a mountain in a testing mountaineering mission, bike along the hundreds of kilometres of bike paths, mountainbike trails, dive head first into crystal-clear alpine lakes, or perfect your swing at one of the many golf courses with delighful backdrops. During winter, there are even more options to explore. Skiers and snowboarders can choose from so many first-class ski resorts for a magical winter holiday. And for all guests who enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the snowy winter wonderland, there are many exciting options to consider such as cross-country skiing, ski mountaineering, snow-shoe and winter hiking, and even a romantic horse-drawn sled ride. No matter if you prefer the red, blue, or red ski slopes for skiing or snowboarding, there is always a modern lift waiting to take you straight back up the mountain. This ensures fantastic fun for all levels of riders, from relaxed family skiing adventures to sporty advanced skiers on the snow-guaranteed slopes.  Even cross-country skiers can benefit from snow-guaranteed conditions all the way into springtime at the high-alpine tracks, which always ensure pristine condiotions. All winter hikers will fall in love with the lovely winter hiking trails, which are always set in idyllic landscapes and allow guests to explore a new part of Salzburg's nature every single day. One of the highlights of every winter holiday spent in Salzburg is to walk up to a beautiful alpine hut on a moonlit winter's evening with your toboggan, warm up with a delicious mulled wine, and then race back down into the valley on a flood-lit toboggan track.
