A holiday with the family in Austria: pure culture!

The Salzburger Land has a great deal of culture to offer for your holiday with your family in Austria – at our Alpine lifestyle hotel in Austria.

As a world cultural heritage site, the historic city of Salzburg alone can offer you almost endless cultural highlights during a holiday with your family in Austria. Especially in summer, when the world-famous Salzburg Festival takes place. These music concerts, which cover all styles from classical to jazz, also include fabulous art exhibitions and unique museums offering endless culture.

We do of course organise a weekly day trip to the city of Mozart so you can be enchanted by the unmistakable charm of this city during your holiday with the family in Austria.

But there are also several cultural sights in the immediate vicinity of Hotel Tannenhof, your accommodation in St. Johann im Pongau. For example, Hohenwerfen Castle impresses with its history and medieval hustle and bustle. The magnificent flight demonstration at the historic regional falconry centre also describes a piece of Austrian culture. Would you like to know more? Then spend your next holiday with your family in Austria at the Hotel Tannenhof. We look forward to seeing you!
