St. Koloman

St. Koloman in Salzburg (Austria).

St. Koloman is a village in the Tennengau region of Salzburg. St. Koloman has a population of approximately 1,600 and is situated on a plateau above the Salzach river valley, between Bad Vigaun and Kuchl. St. Koloman offers a few hiking opportunities. In terms of sightseeing, note the parish church. It was first mentioned in 1506, but this church burned down in 1768. Only in 1805 a new church was opened and named "St. Koloman über dem Salzachtal". It is the main landmark of the community.

Note also a small town museum and the Wilhelmskapelle, a chapel. In terms of sightseeing, this is pretty much it. Luckily, St. Koloman has more attractions to offer when it comes to outdoor things: The landscape around the village is diverse and there are several hiking routes that are worth being explored.

Note the "Großer Gletscherschliff", lines carved into the hills by glaciers during the last Ice Age. Or go to the Seewaldsee, a small, Alpine lake. For those with a car or in case you are really into mountain biking, take the Trattbergpanoramastraße, a panorama road with a view over the Salzachtal Valley. It takes you up to an altitude of 1,700 metres above sea level.
