Those who like it quiet and quaint will love Bramberg. Here you can appreciate typical Pinzgau hospitality and proud regional cuisine. The après-ski facilities have been extended in recent years to include a number of cosy bars and restaurants. The nearby Kristallbad Wald offers wellness facilities and swimming. Other baths are located in Zell am See, Kitzbühel and Mittersill.
There is also plenty to do in terms of culture. A show mine and museum explore the mining tradition of the town, with crystals and minerals still a key part of the town today. You’ll find plenty to admire, with many majestic pieces available to buy if you’re after a spectacular souvenir of your travels. Visiting in winter? If the cold is getting too much, there’s always the Salzburger Wollstadel, a traditional alpine sheep breeder, to consider. Stock up on handmade clothing and accessories made from genuine sheep wool, or stock up on gifts for friend and family back home. If you’re keen to indulge with some real culture in a more bustling centre, then you’ll definitely want to schedule in some time for a trip to Neukirchen am Großvenediger!
The Wildkogel is part of the Kitzbüheler Alps, a very unspoilt mountain range that has been designated a nature reserve. The visitor centre is nearby, providing you with all the pointers you need to get started. You’re free to see what’s in store with many hiking trails already marked out, ensuring you can get up close and personal with the local wildlife. Opposite the Salzach, you’ll see the impressive peaks of the Hohe Tauern rise. Here, at the Tauern Window, the diversity of rocks is particularly pronounced.
