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!
When one of the most sucessfull ski jumpers in Austria changes the business and grabs the camera, one can be curious.
The ski jumper Gregor Schlierenzauer takes pictures since 3 years from now and shoots impressions from his many travels. After his first exhibition “snapshots”, “quiet moments” is his second exhibition already.
Schlierenzauer gets support from the Leica Camera AG, which chose him for their mentoring programme and offers him high-quality material.
His work is displayed from March 4th until May 1st at the Hangar 7 in Salzburg. The net profit from sold pictures goes to the foundation ‘Wings for Life’ which works on healing paraplegia.
This Easter the restaurants in Grödig have found a special way to pamper their guests:
All 8 restaurants in Grödig serve various dishes with lamb meat. The meat comes from local farmers and is of best quality, of course.
You can enjoy the Untersberg lamb from March 24th until April 7th in all restaurants in Grödig.
Enjoy your meal!
Happy easter holidays wishes you
the Family Schnöll-Reichl and the staff members of the Hotel Sallerhof!
“A portrait between imagination and reality”- that is the title of the special exhibition that takes currently place in the Mozart Residence.
As the title already reveals- the exhibition takes interest in the artistic portrayal of W.A. Mozart. His face is displayed on many items: posters, books, compact disks and souvenirs. But how authentic are the pictures of Mozart? As paintings in the exhibition “Mozart pictures- pictures of Mozart” show, the paintings of Mozart after his death differ to the paintings before his death. Therefore the image we know of him was a construction after his death.
The exhibition exists of 80 exhibits, from the Salzburg Mozarteum Foundations as well as private items on loan from all over Europe.
You can visit the exhibition in the Mozart Residence until April 14th!
view on the Mönchsberg and the Fortress
Salzburg is known for it’s musicians- but there are also some known writers, that have lived in Salzburg. One of them is Peter Handke.
The literature-hiking path is one of the nicest walks in Salzburg, and dedicated to him.
The start of the walk is at the Toscanini Hof at the Clemens-Holzmeister staircase. After a couple of steps, the walk brings you to a couple of points of interest:
the Kupelwieser-castle on the Mönchsberg
like the breakthrough of the defence wall (known as the mayor’s hole) and the Kupelwieser castle. In this castle Handke and his daughter used to live from 1979 to 1987.
There is also the possibility to walk up to the Fortress. One of the most beautiful things of the path is the incredible view of the city of Salzburg.
Alongside the walk there are lanterns, so you can also enjoy the literature walking path in the evening!
The last spa that we want to introduce to you, is the Ruperthustherme in the resort Bad Reichhall.
You can reach the Rupertustherme in 20 minutes driving from the Sallerhof (approx. 20 kilometres). The spa has three seperates areas- the sauna area, the brine pool area with a relaxing brine cave and the family pool area.
Moreover there are two restaurants- one spa restaurant and a family bistro as well as an area where you can enjoy your own snacks.
The Ruperthustherme is the biggest out of the 4 presented spas and scores with its modern design and the separation of the different areas. This way the Ruperthus spa is perfect for families as well as for people who are looking for repose.
In Bad Vigaun you’ll find another spa-recommendation of the hotel Sallerhof: the spa Bad Vigaun. The spa was renovated in 2009 and presents itself with a generous sauna area and hot brine pools.
The thermal water comes from the St. Barabara’s spring, a thermal spring in Bad Vigaun, that can be helpful for a variety of physical complaints. The pools are filled with undiluted thermal water in different degrees of heat and provide repose and relaxation. Afterwards you’ll feel like new-born!
The spa in Bad Vigau is 20 minutes driving by car from the Sallerhof and open from 10 am until 10 pm. (on weekends until 9 pm.).
