Monday, June 17th, 2013 Insider’s tip: Waldbad Anif

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!

Monday, May 27th, 2013 Special exhibition at the Haus der Natur

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!
