Our Favourite Places
True Hidden Gems
for your Summer Holiday
We love strolling through the charming artists’ town and having a relaxing bite to eat in one of the sidewalk cafés. On the way back, we always grab some ice cream or a pastry in one of the bakeries and cafés.
We also love hiking on the trails of the Lodron. We would recommend visiting the Kalvarienberg Church with the Lodron crypt and the beautiful forest trail to get there.
In addition to this, there’s the old Kegelbahn, which now belongs to the Pankratium, and the sculpture garden of artist Fritz Russ located directly on the Malta, which are always worth a visit.
If you’re looking for something more refreshing, then you should visit the moated castle Dornbach and the waterfalls in the Malta Valley. The cycle path along the Malta is also beautiful. Here you can find comfortable seating areas and let your thoughts run wild.
If you would like to know more about your possibilities in the area, you can gladly talk to us.

It’s also always worth taking a look in the holiday programme of the Tourist Board.
