Location of the Salzburg Slate Alps

The Salzburg Slate Alps (German: Salzburger Schieferalpen) are a group of mountains in the Central Eastern Alps in the Austrian state of Salzburg. Situated within the greywacke zone, they are also regarded as part of the Northern Limestone Alps.

The range is located between the Kitzbühel Alps, the continuation of the greywacke zone beyond Lake Zeller and Saalach river in the west, and the Dachstein massif in the east. In the north it is adjacent to the Berchtesgaden Alps, while in the south the Salzach valley separates it from the Hohe Tauern.
