Golfing vacations just outside the city of Salzburg


Spend your golfing vacation in a wonderful location: between the city of Salzburg – a world heritage site – and the picturesque Salzkammergut region!

The Gut Altentann and Am Mondsee GCs – two of Austria’s Leading Golf Courses – as well as many further golf courses around the lakes of the Salzkammergut region add to the local golf options.

The championship course of the Salzburg Eugendorf GC provides challenging golfing fun with wide views of the soft, rolling Alpine foothills and the mountain scenery on the horizon. Here, on the northern fringes of the Alps, the landscape is characterised by small towns, forests and many lakes, offering a very relaxed flair for your golfing vacation.

Facts why you should choose a golf vacation just outside the city of Salzburg

and why the region is worth a golf vacation

A wonderful golfing vacation is not just about beautiful golf courses and great golf resorts. It’s the “little things” that can make all the difference. Below you will find a list of further criteria to help you make your decision. Is there anything else you require for a blissful golfing vacation?


Mirabell Palace

Baroque gardens with great photo opportunities, a sylvan theatre, a dwarf garden and Mirabell Palace: It all began about 400 years ago, when Prince-Archbishop Wolf Dietrich von Reitenau fell in love with Salome Alt, a beautiful girl from Salzburg.

Wolf Dietrich built this summer palace with gardens for her. The couple went on to have 15 children. Their story ended tragically – he died a prisoner at Hohensalzburg Castle – but the palace remained. It was expanded and renamed Mirabell Palace by Wolf Dietrich’s nephew and successor Markus Sittikus von Hohenems.

The palace’s Marble Hall is now a popular venue for weddings, where Salzburg’s registrars conduct cordial and personal ceremonies. The grand staircase lined with statues by Georg Raphael Donner is publicly accessible. Enchanting palace concerts are frequently held in the evenings at the Marble Hall, where once Leopold Mozart and his children Wolfgang and Nannerl performed.


Mozart’s Residence

From 1773 to 1787, the Mozart family lived at a house called the “Dancing Master’s House” on today’s Markart Square.

Their spacious 8-room apartment now offers a manifold Mozart experience, with exhibitions, concerts and lectures. By purchasing a combination ticket you can also visit Mozart’s birthplace on Getreidegasse. The house where Mozart was born belonged to the Hagenauer family, successful merchants who sold culinary delights at a delicatessen on the ground floor. The two families were well acquainted and supported each other. Thanks to the Mozarts’ (culinary) travel reports, for instance, the Hagenauers were able to inform the Prince-Archbishop of Salzburg about what was “en vogue” at courts in London or elsewhere.


Hohensalzburg Castle

An absolute must-see for visitors in Salzburg is the well-preserved 11th century castle complex overlooking the city.

You can reach the castle on foot or with a funicular. Taking a walk on the premises is a special experience in itself, but even more memorable are the guided themed tours, such as the sunset tours or the presentations of the castle’s secluded corners: On Thursdays, young historians inform visitors about life in the Middle Ages and let them take a peak behind locked doors to explore areas usually not accessible to visitors (after all, parts of the castle are still inhabited).


Siemens Festival Nights

In August, the city of Salzburg becomes a global cultural hub.

Each year, the famous Salzburg Festival attracts culture enthusiasts from all over the world. For those who were unable to get tickets, a big screen is set up on Kapitelplatz – between the Cathedral and the Festungsberg hill – showing daily screenings of opera and concert performances from the current season and past festival seasons. Admission is free. For security reasons, however, seats must be reserved in advance. Alternatively, you can also book a table in the restaurant tent with a view of the screen. For popular opera performances, dining guests are expected to consume several courses.

Perfect for hot summer days: Hellbrunn Palace with trick fountains

More than 400 years ago, Prince-Archbishop Markus Sittikus built this palace with extensive gardens as a place of pleasure and recuperation. Today, visitors still enjoy it for the same purposes, whether they are marvelling at the trick fountains, admiring the palace or having a picnic in the park.

Since the palace is outside the city limits, we recommend the Salzburg Highlights package, which includes a river cruise to Hellbrunn Palace, admission to the trick fountains and a ride in a historic double-decker bus.
