Altenmarkt, also known as the "Sunny Heart of the Enns-Pongau region", is a beautiful town in the Salzburger Land (only 65 km from Salzburg City, home of the world-famous festival and "City of Mozart"), a place where the ambience of ancient traditions and authentic customs can be felt wherever you go.
At first glance, visitors notice the open and young face of Altenmarkt-Zauchensee. But its feet are also firmly planted on historic ground: attesting to this is Altenmarkt's parish church, which features a stone statue of the "Holy Mary with Child" dating from 1393, together with a variety of contrasting architectural styles, such as a Gothic nave and a late-Baroque onion tower.
Green meadows, lush high pastures and romantic mountain tarns are the summertime characteristics of this deeply rooted, typical Salzburg market community.
The refreshingly clear air, clean mountain streams and a broad range of recreational opportunities, including hiking, cycling and bridle paths, golf, sports and swimming lakes, plus lots more, all make their own special contribution to a truly successful vacation - an atmosphere which invites you to relax, unwind and forget the usual daily routine!
