Do nature and culture contradict each other? We don’t think so. They rather complement each other, as two sides of the same coin. Sometimes you need pristine nature, enjoying the natural environment, and culture, architecture, design and the like are far from your mind. This is when you relax and fully take in your surrounding nature. But everything has its time – tranquillity, relaxation, nature, culture, the suspense and the excitement of new things. Cities and special places are just perfect for these kinds of explorations and cultural experiences – and this is where Obertauern's perfect location comes into play. From here, it is just a short trip to some of the most exciting and interesting places as well to some of the most beautiful and vibrant Austrian cities.
Salzburg, the city of Mozart, is just so much more and there is quite a few things more to do – and it is just an hour's drive away. Or maybe you’d want to leave Mozart behind and you prefer an imperial city? Bad Ischl, at just 1.5 hours away, is just basically around the corner. The former European city of culture, Graz, is also with in driving distance. 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 has a unique, distinctive character. 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 all within your grasp.
