Faistenau in the Salzkammergut
The holiday village in the Salzburger Land
Faistenau is a small community in the Salzburger Land just 20 kilometres from the Mozart City of Salzburg. In summer the sun shines for hikers and those who search for recreation, and those who find relaxation and enjoyment in the mountains and the crystal clear lakes of the Salzkammergut. In winter this snow clad resort is the place for cross-country skiing, alpine ski sports and gentle winter experiences in the idyllic nature of the Salzkammergut.
A village with tradition
In spite of all the benefits of a holiday in the Salzkammergut, the village of Faistenau has retained its original character and radiates a homely atmosphere which one no longer finds in the larger winter sport destinations. Depending upon the season, one has the possibility to experience unadulterated traditional customs close-by and has many unforgettable holiday memories of Salzburg to take home.
Four women and a death
The village featured in the television series of lady hobby crime detectives “Vier Frauen und ein Todesfall” is in fact Faistenau in the Fuschlsee Region. The Hotel Alte Post was also a film set for this amusing and popular crime series. For those who wish to visit further film venues, there are signs in the village to help you follow the spur.
