City and countryside. The arts and traditional craftsmanship. Vibrant streets and secluded oases of peace. Do you think that there’s no way of combining these contrasts?

You don’t have to miss out on the amenities of the city during your farm holiday in Austria. Not far from Salzburg, there are farms where you’ll find a quiet, rural ambience, a cosy place to stay and authentic farm life.

Salzburg - the city known for the famous festival of music and drama, the museums and the arts. You should definitely stop by here during any farm holiday in SalzburgerLand. But the city is also worth a multi-day visit. What’s more convenient than staying close to where it all happens? Still, you’d like to spend your holiday in the countryside? Are you looking forward to some farmhouse cosiness?

We have it all! Rise and shine in the morning. The egg on the breakfast table is from the henhouse around the corner. Enjoy the tranquility of the countryside. Later on, you can take a stroll through the vibrant alleyways in the city. Take in beautiful views of the historic centre at dusk as you indulge in the local cuisine. Thanks to great public transport, you can easily switch between city and countryside mode. Your bed in the farmhouse is waiting for you on the outskirts of Salzburg. It only takes a few minutes to get there.

On the farm “Bauernbräugut” in Hallein, the local railway station is literally on the doorstep. From the farm “Motzenhof” in Adnet, you can take the bus to Hallein and change to the train for Salzburg. And the best is yet to come: Public transport is completely free of charge thanks to the guest card “Tennengau-Card” that’s included in your stay. From the organic farm “Bio Bauernhof Paulbauer” in Hof bei Salzburg, you can take the bus line 150. It goes to the city every 30 minutes. How about exploring the destinations in the opposite direction? The lakes Fuschlsee and Wolfgangsee are picturesque spots for a day trip. From the farm “Bamacherhof” in Großgmain, the bus line 180 takes you to the city centre without the hassle.

Would you like to get some exercise and combine it with a city trip? Grab your bike and cycle to the city centre right from the farms “Seidenwebergut” in Anif or “Bonauerhof” in Wals. On your way there, you’ll see Salzburg from a different and very special perspective. Of course, there’s also a bus line.

What our farms near the city of Salzburg have in common:

  • Max. 20km from the city centre
  • Quiet setting in the countryside with idyllic spots to relax on the farm
  • Great access to public transport - no need for a car and stressful traffic on your way to Salzburg

Would you like to combine an idyllic countryside holiday with the amenities of the city? Then, these farms are the right choice for you. Natural gems and cultural highlights are only a few kilometres apart.
