Salzburg is the sixth largest federal state in Austria, but in terms of population density Salzburg is well below the national average.
The state is characterised by a very high proportion of forests, which account for 39% of the area of Salzburg. Alpine vegetation and rocks together account for around 33% of the area, while arable land and pastures account for only 13%.
Alpine foothills and foothills of the Alps in the north, High Alps in the south. The Halleiner Becken and Flachgau (with the state capital of the same name) belong to the Alpine foothills in the northwest, Tennengau and Salzkammergut to the foothills of the Alps in the northwest. The High Alps from the Lungau in the southeast to the Pinzgau in the southwest form the largest part of the province of Salzburg.
55% of Salzburg's population lives in the Flachgau and Halleiner Becken (both Alpine foothills) in the northwest of the state.
The Großvenediger is with 3.657m the biggest mountain of Salzburg. Although the Großglockner is located in the border triangle of Salzburg - Tyrol - Carinthia, the summit is shared by the other two federal states.
