The city and region of Salzburg have so much to offer!
he GROSSARLER HOF’s central position in the Salzburg region makes it a perfect base for exploring the many day trip destinations in the area. Almost all the region’s attractions are within just an hour’s drive: from Mozart’s birthplace and the Silent Night Chapel to the many mines, castles, national parks and, of course, the Salzburg Festival – there are many historic highlights waiting to be discovered.
Mother Nature has excelled in this province, where landscapes range from level lakeside areas – perfect for cycling – to spectacular highlands. Spend a day by a lake, rock climbing, on a hike through a gorge, mountaineering or visiting the Hohe Tauern National Park, the Alps’ largest national park. Outdoor excursions in the Salzburg region are simply second to none!
The city of Salzburg is the region’s capital and famous for being Mozart’s birthplace and staging the Salzburg Festival. The city boasts one of the world’s most enchanting historical centres where visitors can admire churches and museums, follow in the footsteps of the prince-archbishops, amble to Hohensalzburg Castle or Mirabell Palace, take a look at Hellbrunn Palace and its trick fountains, or enjoy a raft of other leisure activities.
Slow down, lean back and enjoy: by steam train, by boat or by bus on a Sound of Music tour. Holidays are timely reminders that the journey is the destination – and the perfect opportunity for new experiences.
With such a wealth of sights and day trip destinations, the weather in the Salzburg region becomes almost immaterial. The many indoor attractions are perfect for rainy days, and when it comes to outdoor exploits, we say there is no such thing as bad weather: only the wrong clothing!
