Anif

The most beautiful place to live surrounded by nature
The most beautiful place to live surrounded by nature

Anif is an idyllic village situated south of the city of Salzburg. It is inextricably linked with the most famous conductor of the 20th century – Herbert von Karajan. In this area you will find his idyllically situated farmhouse, still inhabited by his wife Eliette, and his modest grave. Up until his death in 1989, Karajan pulled the strings at the Salzburg Festival, brought international stars to the Mozart city, and internationalised the Festival.

if When you’re in the natural oasis of Anif, it’s hard to imagine that the city of Salzburg with its charming Old Town is so close nearby. Not only this, but another top attraction, Hellbrunn Gardens, can be reached comfortably by foot from Anif. Hardly any guests to Salzburg miss out on visiting this highlight, and you can easily spend an entire day there. At and around Hellbrunn Mountain, there’s a zoo with more than 800 animal inhabitants, Hellbrunn Pleasure Palace, and the Trick Fountains, which deliver cooling, refreshing fun in the summer months. On top of that, there are the parks themselves with their ponds, statues, the Monatsschlössl chateaux, and imposing stone theatre.

Anif Climbing Park

Sporting activities await in the climbing park, the highest rope course in Salzburg. You can traverse from platform to platform across more than 100 varied stations, all with varying levels of difficulty. Younger guests can test their climbing skills in the lower-rope garden. After working up a sweat climbing, it’s time to cool down, chill out, and relax at the Waldbad bathing lake, which is where the climbing park is located.

Exploring with a bike

Anybody keen to explore the area around Salzburg on a bike has come to the right place in Anif. There are numerous bike trails, including the Mozart Cycle Path, in the near vicinity. You can take a relaxed cycle ride all the way into town along the Salzach River on the Tauern Cycle Path.

Insider tip

In the run-up to Christmas, the Anif Krampusses make their mischief. The atmospheric spectacle at the annual Hayloft Party in the Friesacher Hotel & Restaurant hayloft is particularly impressive.
