Salzburg – looks great
and sounds fantastic!

One can hardly imagine Salzburg as complete without its both cultural and artistical heritage. And we don’t have to! The care for all sorts of audible and visible pleasures is in season here at any time and many places.

Besides that, Salzburg is always worth a visit – whether you want to stroll trough its pituresque alleys or take a view from its surrounding hills.

Hallein – celts, salt and culture

The appartements bachler are surrounded by places of history and flair. This also very much applies to Hallein. This second biggest city of the state of Salzburg obtained importance and wealth early in history: Initially as a Celtic colony and later as a substancial trading point and productive mining site for precious salt.

Today Hallein furthermore presents itself as a cultural anchor in the Alpine foreland and lives up to his role as both a tradition-conscious and modern orientated place.

the neighbour village

From here the colonization of an entire region started out. Today Golling furthermore presents itself as a place of activity for the culturally interested. In particular through theatrical and musical performances such as readings, cabaret shows and the annual „Little Festivals“ on Golling Castle.
