In the southernmost part of the Austrian province Salzburger Land there is a lot of nature and plenty of space for relaxation and deceleration. In 2012, Salzburg’s Lungau region, together with Carinthia’s Nockberge Mountains, received the UNESCO Biosphere Park designation, making it the largest in all of Austria. Biosphere reserve means preservation of biological diversity, maintaining regional cultural values and developing the region together with the local population.
