Experience the Salzburger Lungau All Inclusive - Lungau Cardhiking with cable car in UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Salzburg's Lungau

For me the most beautiful center in the SalzburgerLand

Posted on 30. June 2017
Village Mauterndorf

The beginnings of the town date back to Roman times. Even back then a road crossed through the Tauern Pass at this current location. In the Middle Ages a toll was levied, which gave the place the name. Therefore, many houses in the center of town originate from the late Middle Ages. The heyday of the place, however, was in the 16th and 17th centuries, when mining in the Lungau had an enormous boom. The largest business family, the Jocher family came from Upper Bavaria. Their representative houses on the main square were decorated with the stepped gables that were popular in their homeland. These houses possess large entrance halls, where wagonloads were stored temporarily. Typical of 16th century Renaissance are also the colored ornamentation of the houses in black, oxide red, ocide ocher and blue, which are characteristic of Mauterndorf. The arrangement of the houses on the square is also quite interesting. They are not exactly flush with one other, but instead are built slightly behind each other.

Today the rural character of Mauterndorf is under protection.
