Abtenau and surrounding area

In summer, enjoy the fresh scent of the meadows, which start right behind the building; in winter, take a romantic walk on a snow-covered mountainside.

If it is sports you are into, the options are endless: adventure sports on land, water or in the air, in a fabulous setting, available year-round.

There is also a broad range of cultural activities in the surrounding region: Easter and Whitsun festivals, the world-famous Salzburg Festival, the Salzburg Autumn Jazz Festival and a wide range of theatres, cinemas and museums. Salzburg is an enticing prospect, and not just when it is raining.

The area has a lot to offer gastronomically too: hearty mountain breakfasts or après ski, organic farm delicacies or simple culinary pleasures at one of the restaurants on the market square in town.


Abtenau is perfect if you enjoy hiking, snowshoe hiking, paragliding, mountain biking, Nordic walking or cross-country skiing. A wide range of sporting activities are available in Abtenau, Postalm area and Dachstein-West hiking and skiing region including white-water rafting, canyoning (gorge walking) or kayaking if you are in the mood for adventure.
