Close to the German border near Berchtesgaden, one encounters an alpine picture book world of overwhelming beauty: the Pongau region in Salzburger Land. Behind this backdrop you could almost
Walt Disney suspect, because the nature park framed by the Dachstein, Tennengebirge, Hochkönig and the three-thousand-meter peaks of the Hohe Tauern is almost too good to be true.
First and foremost Mühlbach with the Hochkönig, the 2941 meter high landmark of the Pongau. Or Großarl, the valley of alpine pastures, and the Gastein Valley with its nostalgic Belle Epoque spa Bad Gastein. Here, the climate of the high mountains, which are low in stimulating factors, combines with the gentle factors of the low mountain range and ensures particularly
relaxing vacation conditions. The cocktail of healing air, unspoiled nature, naturally pure water and the warming rays of the sun gives energy to discover new playgrounds for yourself. Last but not least, the extraordinary density of alpine pastures contributes to this, offering mountain sports enthusiasts a proud 550 snack stations in dream locations to choose from.
In winter, the world-famous Ski amadé ski area and the Snow Space with a superlative ski circuit ensure the best possible winter sports conditions. And should anyone be drawn to the city, then the historic Mozart city of Salzburg with its baroque architecture, an incredible cultural offering and many top-class shopping opportunities is only
a stone’s throw away. If all this is to be at your feet, then you are in good hands at the Sonnhof Alpendorf. Because the Sonnhof is right in the middle of the Pongau and still guarantees a healthy distance to the tourist hotspots. With us, you can nestle in comfortably and enjoy Austria’s most beautiful sides to the fullest either way.
Whether sporting, cultural, traditional, religious or simply fun: Throughout the year, there are many interesting events in the province of Salzburg. We have spared no effort and listed our personal highlights for you.
Happiness is: opening the balcony door in the morning, letting your eyes wander over the mountains & feeling the first rays of sunshine on your skin while the scent of freshly mown grass hits your nose.
