Flachau is situated 85 miles (137 kilometers) east of Innsbruck - Central Tirol and about 150 miles (241 kilometers) southwest of the national capital, Vienna.
While it may be a temptation to limit yourself to just the local sights while holidaying in Flachau, remember, the surrounding region's many natural and man-made attractions await. While in the Salzburg area, visit St Johann im Pongau. It's roughly 9 miles (14 kilometers) away from Flachau and is home to the Pongau Cathedral and Liechtenstein Gorge. Schladming is yet another spot worth investigating. It is where you'll find the Hauptplatz and Planai Hochwurzen Cable Car. Schladming is 14 miles (23 kilometers) away from Flachau.
About 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the southwest of Flachau is Bad Gastein, a regional center and the home of Stubnerkogel, Graukogel and Gastein Vapor Bath. Sportgastein Ski Resort and Casino Bad Gastein are also good places to head to.
Every place you visit has its own unique history and this area has its own stories to tell. The castles here are well worth visiting. Religion is an important part of every place's make-up, so why not visit the area's many churches and other important religious sites.
Make the most of the knowledge of the locals with your pick of cycling tours, city walking tours and segway tours. Get yourself some outdoor gear and go cross-country skiing or skiing. These activities are popular with locals and visitors.
When it is time to leave Flachau, use the last of your euros on last minute keepsakes and bid a fond Tschüss (farewell).
