The mountainous area around Salzburg is dotted with splendid turquoise Alpine lakes. Eat freshly smoked trout on the shores of Lake Fuschl, sail around the Mondsee (also a Sound of Music aficionado pilgrimage site) or board a ship cruising the azure waters of Lake Wolfgangsee. For a breath-taking view, take the nostalgic cogwheel train dating back to 1893 up Mount Schafsberg. Before your reward at the mountain-top restaurant, the most fearless can take a look over the edge of the 3,500 foot deep vertical cliff. Would you dare?
