    Cosy and Diverse

    The day you arrive in St. Johann in Salzburg, you might take a stroll through town: You discover a cute café, sit down and enjoy a coffee and pastry while lazily watching people.

    The next day is completely different: You hike through lush Alpine landscapes, set against a backdrop of rugged mountains, arrive at a mountain lake so clear you can see the ground. You dip your feet in the water and hear nothing but the wind.

    And the day after that, something completely new awaits you yet again. It might be a day full of laughter with your family, or a visit to the world’s largest ice cave, or a stroll through a moss-covered gorge. One thing is for sure: The day you leave, you're already thinking about coming back.
