You want to cool off from the warm weather and enjoy the nature at the same time? Then the swimming lake Waldbad Anif is a good recommendation for you!
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!
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!
The forests on the Salzburg city mountains are ideal for hiking and walking. Whether you chose the Kapuzinerberg, the Hellbrunnerberg or the Mönchsberg- the mountains are popular local recreation areas and also offer breathtaking views over the city center.
Every year, the city of Salzburg, offers free walking tours, guided by forest-experts, that explain how they take care of the city mountains and forests. This way you can get to know the city mountains even more and learn about forest care.
This year, the walks take place from June 10th- June 14th, during the week of the forests. The walks start a 5 pm. at every weather.
The Haus der Natur, a museum for technic and nature is always a good recommendation for a family excursion. Besides the current exhibitions there are always interesting temporary exhibitions, like to one about the topic bionic.
Like the title ‘nature inspires technology’ already suggests the exhibition shows how humans can learn from animals and nature concerning technical issues. There are many questions that will be answered, like: What have a thighbone and the Eiffel Tower in common? And what has the aircraft industry learnt from studying the wings of birds? By the way, the gecko was used as an example to develop especially adhesive sticky tape.
We wish you fun discovering and exploring- because people never stop learning!
The national park Berchtesgaden is only a short driving distance from the Sallerhof and attracts many people. The national park is especially known for the beautiful lake Köngissee and the Watzmann mountain. Since May 2013, the national park offers another attraction worth going there: the house of mountains!
Since May 2013, the house of mountains is open (daily, from 9 am- 5 pm) for everybody who takes interest in the national park and its nature. The goal is to make the nature and its knowledge accessible for everybody. The house of mountains informs about the ecological conditions, the meaning and beauty of the national park.
This way the house of nature is an information center as well as a cultural and touristic highlight. It explains the characteristics of the national park Berchtesgaden and this way also helps preserving it.
The district and street festivals are a popular change to the every-day routine for many local people in Salzburg.
This year the Kaiviertel starts the festivities with its Kaiviertelfest from May 24th-25th.
In June, the Linzergasse celebrates the Linzergassenfest from June 26th-28th.
And last but not least, there is the Steingassenfest from August 23rd-24th.
Some festivals, like the Linzergassenfest already exist since 30 years and therefore became a popular event for many local people. But whether you attend the Kaiviertelfest, the Linzergassenfest or the Steingassenfest- the festivals are used to show off the district/street, advertise for local businesses and entertain the visitors. There is no charge but usually a variety of bands and music as well as local dishes and events for children.
So the only thing that is left to do, is hope that the weather is warm and dry so that this years festivals are as popular and successful as always!

To stroll around the various markets in Salzburg and taste regional specialities- that is a pleasurable amusement, for locals as well as guests.
Salzburg is known for its variety of famer’s markets, like the Grünmarkt at the Universitätsplatz, the Schranne at the Mirabellplatz (every Thursday) or the organic-farmer’s market at the Kajetanerplatz (every Friday).
But also the saisonal and theme markets are very popular, like the Rupertikirtag (in autumn), the Salzachgalerien (in summer) or the christmas-markets (in winter).
One major market in spring is the Winzermarkt at the Mirabellplatz (4-5. May 2013, 11-12. May 2013, 18-19. May 2013). All who want to taste or buy regional, Austrian wine of high quality will not be disappointed there.
Partly because of it’s location (on top of the Mönchsberg, overviewing the city), but also because of it’s extraordinary architecture- the Museum of Moderne Salzburg can be hardly overlooked.
This year the museum celebrates it’s 30iest anniversary- with a jubilee exhibition. Barbara Musil, Elisabeth Schmierl and Büro Josef Böhm are the names of the artist featured in this exhibition. The last name- Büro Josef Böhm- represents an artist collective that designed an unconventional model railway landscape that invites visitors to embark on an imaginary (time) travel trough the history of the MdM Rupertinum.
The other to artists, Barbara Musil and Elisabeth Schmirls show their art in the MdM Salzburg. Barbara Musil is showing works of art and curiosities inspired by the ‘cabinet of wonders’ whereas Elisabeth Schmirls art is based on research into digital pictorial media.
The jubilee exhibition is shown at the Museum der Moderne until May 5th.
Since November last year, the Hoppolino has opened its doors in Anif, just 5 minutes driving distance from Grödig. The Hoppolino is an indoor-playground, especially designed for children from 0-10 years.
From 9 am until 6 pm the Hoppolino offers everything children want: trampolines, climbing wall, slides, an area especially for toddlers and a soft ball shooting area. For the parents and adults in general, there is a restaurant with view to the children’s area, so you can keep an eye on them while enjoying your meal or drink.
Especially for days with bad weather, family trips or birthday parties, the Hoppolino is a good recommendation!
