July 1st, 2013 Quality of local water
The Untersberg is not only a popular recreation area in the south of Salzburg city- it is also a natural water reservoir for Grödig and the city of Salzburg. The various springs and founts at the bottom of the mountain cover 90% of the water demand of Salzburg city and Grödig.
The water from Grödig is of excellent quality and gets good results at every testing. Therefore the water just needs to be degermed and can be given away in its natural state.
Our guests from all over the world point out that the high quality of our water is not self-evident and that often enough they cannot drink their water from the tap at home like we do in Grödig. Therefore we are very proud of the quality of our water and try to use it as economical as possible.
For further information about the water in Grödig you can visit the website of the local water association: http://wasser-groedig.at/seite_11.html

June 17th, 2013 Insider’s tip: Waldbad Anif
The lake offers crystal clear water imbedded in a little forest with an old tree population- idyllic nature!
Additional the Waldbad also offers a variety of sports, like table tennis, beach volleyball, boccia, badminton, diving or climbing. The high ropes course in the Waldbad for example is one of the nicest ones in Salzburg and offer more then 120 different exercises.
If you need a break from all those many activities, the lake is close and you can just jump in to cool off or relax on the sun terrace.
Sallerhof tipp: The Waldbad Anif is just 4 km away from the Sallerhof- the perfect distance to leave the car at the hotel and take a bicycle. Of course you can borrow bicycles at the Sallerhof!
June 10th, 2013 the railroad is back
The railroad is not only a means of transportation, but also a popular toy, already since 150 years. This is reason enough for the Salzburg toy museum to dedicate a special exhibition to the beloved toy.
Displayed are toys and models from 3 generations, from the big wooden train, the steam train or the electronic train. As a special highlight the traffic manager of Salzburg, Gunter Mackinger, provided historic Salzburg trains from his own private collection.
Therefore the special exhibition is a highlight not only for children but for families and people interested in trains!
