Under the motto "Salzburg Summits" this book has assembled the geographical summits of all 119 districts of the Province of Salzburg – from well-known Alpine peaks to inconspicuous hillocks, ranging from the water reservoir near Maria Bühel (Oberndorf's highest point), through the Alpine foothills and moraines (easily accessible by bicycle), to more ambitious tours or one of the climbing routes to the highest Salzburg peak, the Grossvenediger. This guide takes climbers, hikers, ski-tourists and cyclists on an exploration of all 119 "Salzburg Summits", offering a wide choice of ascents, mostly starting from a local village and described with map and photo. A list of municipalities and summits guarantees new destinations to discover.
