The Salza river without a doubt qualifies as one of the most valuable ecological and beautiful rivers in Austria. With a cumulative length of 77 kilometers it is the second longest river in the Steiermark region and its total course also has the highest quality drinking water.
Interrupted only with small power plants, throughout the entire course of the Salza river one finds an undisturbed, intact river landscape. Beginning with the beach waters the river offers unspoiled bluffs, perpendicular rock walls, gravel and gravel banks among the ever changing wealth of formations.
From Moosbach the Salza river flows through a practically undeveloped valley in which the dynamic of the river and the constant displacement of the beds are wonderful to behold. Below the Presceny hermitage the river widens here through extensive islands and very different bank structures which mark the river beds of the Salza up to 60 meters. From Wildalpen the Salza river changes again to narrow and deep gorges.
Limited day passes are available for both fishing districts.
