Taxenbach in Salzburger Land

Small is beautiful - this also applies to Taxenbach. There are many cultural gems to discover on long walks, monuments and wayside shrines, chapels and wayside crosses.

A little dreamy, but with a magnificent view of the mountains of the Hohe Tauern National Park, Taxenbach is located at the beginning of the Rauris Valley in the heart of Salzburger Land. Here, nature-loving connoisseurs will find 1000 km² of protected primeval and cultural landscape and a hospitality that has retained its originality and genuine warmth. 

Being rooted in one's own culture and approaching others with open arms is what makes the Pinzgau hosts so endearing. This is also reflected in the living tradition of the people of Taxenbach, their festivals and music evenings, which they love to share with their guests. Blacksmithing, rural painting, wood carving, sheep shearing and wool spinning are just some of the old crafts that have survived here into the fast-paced everyday life of our new millennium. From farmer's butter from the wooden model to the finely aromatic rowanberry schnapps, the people of Taxenbach are proud of their products - and rightly so. Quality is a top priority in the Hohe Tauern bioregion, a basic prerequisite for unadulterated enjoyment.
