Are nature and culture a contradiction? We don’t think so. Rather they complementary. Two sides of the same coin. Sometimes you need the unspoilt state of nature, the pleasure of the landscape and times where culture, architecture, design and the like are far away. With that you relax and can reflect wholly in the surrounding nature. But everything has its time - tranquillity, relaxation, nature, culture, the suspense and the excitement of new things.
Towns and special places guarantee such exploration and cultural experiences. And Obertauern and the region are in a perfect location. So perfect, that in a very short time you can get to some of the most exciting and most interesting places and to some of the loveliest and most vibrant towns in Austria. Salzburg, the Mozart town, which is just so much more and where you can do a lot is within an hour’s drive. Or maybe you’d prefer to leave Mozart and you want an imperial city? Well, Bad Ischl, at just 1 1⁄2 hours away, is just a stone’s throw away. The former European city of culture, Graz, is within touching distance too. In 2.5 hours you have museums around you, which you really have to see and experience. Or maybe you’d prefer a capital city? Vienna is variety-packed, versatile, multi-cultural and also has a character all of its own. If you are planning a longer excursion and you want romance, lagoons and lovely Italian food, then Venice is only 4 hours away. So you see, Obertauern is in a great location. Really great even. Culture at the highest level and interesting towns are just a stone’s throw away.
