Lunz Lake with its crystal clear water and the forests and mountains of the Alpine foothills form the backdrop for a July festival, committed to the crossover of all style and genre boundaries.
A jewel of Baroque meets contemporary art. 70,000 restored books, ceiling frescoes and sculptures in the magnificent library hall face works by Erwin Wurm, Rudi Molacek and Lois Renner.
The Rogner Bad in Blumau is far more than just a thermal spring. Designed by Friedensreich Hundertwasser, the establishment, which is made up of healing springs, a sauna area, hotel and garden, sees itself as a work of art.
The Alpine patures, the quiet and a hint of luxury; a holiday at the 4-star Forsthofalm is a sensual experience. And an unusual one at that. The hotel is contructed entirely out of wood.
The fact that it is ideally located on Lake Fuschl, is nearby to the festival city of Salzburg, has the largest private spa in the Salzkammergut and excellent cuisine makes the Waldhof a worthwhile destination at any time of the year.
Enjoy the luxury of the simple life; live well, eat and drink well and take in the surroundings. A guide to slowing down.
Wooden tiles on the roof, luxurious comfort beneath the ceiling. Skiing pleasure and intensive recuperation. A cosmopolitan feel together with a local way of life: the Gradonna Resort in Kals (East Tyrol) unites many ways of life in one, and is located just beside the ski run at the foot of the Großglockner mountain.
Fancy holidaying in a mountain hut? In Almdorf Seinerzeit, high up in Carinthia’s Nock Mountains, guests don’t have to worry about doing without their privacy or lots of luxury despite the authentic Alpine ambience.
The gardens in Kamptal are particularly lush, attracting visitors with 19 unusual green oases in one of Lower Austria’s most picturesque regions.
The Nock mountains in Carinthia are home to a unique medical plant. Its heady scent and exceptional powers can be felt by hikers exploring the mountains.
The vastest National Park in Central Europe covers three federal provinces: Carinthia, Tirol and SalzburgerLand.
In search of lost tastes, Erich Stekovics has collected tomato seeds from around the whole world. Nowadays, he has more than 3,200 old kinds growing on his fields near Lake Neusiedl.
The Mühltalhof in Neufelden is one of those places that’s so good one would much rather keep it a secret.
The Schilcherland with its vineyards and authentic local wine taverns combines all sorts of delights, and not just of a culinary nature: The Rauch-Hof, offers an idyllic place to stay, outstanding food and unusual cultural experiences.
