Austria with Tour Olam
Salzburg Land is actually the province of Salzburg located in the northwest of Austria, bordering the province of Tyrol and Germany to the West, the provinces of Upper Austria and Satria to the East, and the province of Carinthia to the South. The Salzburg Land district is a center of attraction for summer vacations for many families who find here everything a family needs on their vacation: perfect weather, green mountains, plenty of attractions for all ages, hiking trails and an atmosphere of calm and peace that only Austria can offer.
At a height of 1200 meters rises a small and cute town called Zedarhaus. A water tributary running through its center and the green mountains rising on both sides imbue it with the peace and quiet necessary for a vacation.
Its central location close to the main road between Salzburg in the North and Slovenia and Carinthia in the South gives it easy and convenient access to all of the tourist sites and attractions in the Salzburg Land area.
