Salzburg’s Sunny South
Holidays begin here – 1,000 meters high above the daily routine.
The juxtaposition of a true vacation landscape with Mauterndorf’s harmonious, centuries-old market square inspires a sense of wonder and excitement at every turn. The mountains of the Tauern show their friendlier side, whilst before them stands a fairytale-like castle.
Stately town buildings lend the community its distinct character. Experience it for yourself: the air is as crystal clear as the wild waters of the Taurach .
Tucked away in a fascinating mountain world, Mauterndorf Castle in Salzburg`s Lungau is far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, yet an easy destination to reach nonetheless. From an art-historical standpoint, it is simply a unique jewel that will bring you back in time to the late medieval period. Also awaiting you are visits to the Lungau Museum of Folk History and the 44 m high fortified tower with a captivating view of Mauterndorf and the adjacent mountain world.
Austria’s highest narrow-gauge railway "Taurachbahn" is real value for money. Chartered train rides can also be booked from June to September with advance registration. Chartered “nostalgia” steam trains or diesel trains can be rented out for company outings, club trips, or wedding parties.
