Things to Do in Faistenau

Faistenau is a village that advertises itself as being in the Salzkammergut; whilst this is debateably, it surely is in a scenic corner of Austria. There is the Osterhorngruppe mountain range and good access to the lakes of the Salzkammergut. Faistenau has access to the small skiing region (Gaissau-Hintersee), but it appeals mainly to locals. If you have a car, Salzburg is within easy reach. Staying in Faistenau should be relatively cheap.
