Forstau at a glance

A small traditional Salzburgerland village with 520 inhabitabts, with a good vertical, an ice rink, and 20km of cleared winter walking routes. The local ski-mountain is the Fageralm - where the skiing is especially well suited to families with children and skiers who want to relax. There's no stress, no mass tourism and no waiting times at the skilifts. For children there are several ski-slopes with character figures (indian slope, viking-slope, slope with the animals of the Fageralm-forests...). In the small ski-huts (no self-service!!) you can relax and enjoy the Austrian specialities!
