STYLISHLY RENOVATED, 700 YEAR OLD CASTLE, FARMHOUSE WITH MOUNTAIN VIEW- SAUNA

Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday castle in Zell am See - Castle Saalhof

7 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 2 eat-in kitchens, 14 to 20 people

Our castle farm is in a secluded location with a stunning view of the Hohen Tauern. Our newly renovated, spacious facilities in the castle invite you to relax. The traditional atmosphere of our beautiful castle, the rooms with Swiss Stone pine will enchant you. Ideal for small to larger groups and families. Whether safe catering, breakfast buffet or a 3-course menu - everything is possible. Our own products include milk, eggs, meat. The panorama terrace and the garden with a mountain fountain offer you relaxation.

New: Our Sauna - An oasis of rest and relaxation. Treat yourself. Enjoy some time out, and simply relax. Enjoy your well-earned time out with our lasting pampering experiences!

Try our outside sauna area with an infra-red booth for 4 persons and classic finnish sauna for 10 persons. The infrared sauna provides penetrating heat especially for the back.

And after: Refresh yourself in the snow? Or relax in our oasis of rest with high quality feng shui loungers made from local massive wood or on our sun terrace? Large windows offer great views to the mountains of the national park 'Hohe Tauern'. The relaxation area has comfortable hammocks where you can lean back and relax.

And have a cup of tea or drink a cool glass of beer and admire the magnificent alps....

Enjoy the grilling evenings in our traditional wooden gazebo and in winter in our Grillhouse (finnish Grillikota)...

A great playground with a tree house, a lot of animals to pet (goats, rabbits, cows, our dog Tina, pigs, chicken), horse riding on our horse Simone, a lot of space to play and daily programs in the stable like feeding animals, looking for eggs - this offers action for children. Weekly guided hikes to the Saalhof alp pasture are popular among our guests.

holiday on a farm: Altogether 80 cattle and calves, 20 of which are milk cows, pigs, our goats Loisi with her fawn, chicken, our rabbits, our horse Simone, cats and our dog Tina play on our farm. Our rabbits Flecki and Punkti look forwarding to being pet and they look forward to fresh dandelions. At least once a week (as desired), we have horse riding for children with professional guides on our well behaved horse Simone. For good riders, you can go riding on our path networks at all times! During the summer, the cows come to the stable around 5:00 PM for milking and feeding; the farmers like it when people help and if they bring hay into the stable (for goats, rabbits, cows and the horse Simone) or feeding the calves... Right on arrival, there is a guide through the farm and stable with a lot of opportunities to get to know people and animals.

Our alpine pasture: Once a week from May to October, we have an excursion to our alpine pasture with about a 1-hour hike to the upper pasture at 1700 m: 100 cattle and 10 horses graze here. It is particularly nice during the mountain spring during the rose blooming time in May and June! A lot of mushrooms and 'Schwammerl' can be found here starting in August and above all, during the Indian Summer in September and October! The farmer Kathrin would be happy to show you a few places! Those who want to dive into the original life of the farmers 200 years ago and want to live in harmony with nature for a little bit will feel comfortable in the atmosphere of the upper alpine pasture next to the kettle and butter churner. Visiting the upper pasture allows for a thrilling trip in time to the past....

Our garden terrace and playground: : The garden area consists of a terrace, mountain fountain, fountain hutch with spring water and gazebo, grill. Our well-kept garden area, the play lawn and the playground with a tree house, bridge, 2 swings, 1 slide, a climbing tree, a basketball basket and a sandbox is completely enclosed. Thus, parents can sunbathe or read a book without any worries... The highlight is our lying climbing tree: in the front with the head of the dragon from the

never-ending Story and in the back a dragon tail! The dragon is great to ride! The beautiful gazebo invites you to have cosy grill nights during nice summer evenings. A grill is available. Once a week, every Monday, there is a grill night included in the half board and also other people (self-caterers) can put something on Hermann's grill (our farmer)!

About Kathrin Rieder

I am originally German and got to know my husband in holidays. I started to rent rooms within Castle Saalhof after the renovation just some years ago.

Kathrin Rieder purchased this castle in 1840

Why Kathrin Rieder chose Zell am See

Castle Saalhof has been in family posession since 1840.

What makes this castle unique

My family is living in Castle Saalhof, but we rent the total 2nd floor to guests.

By doing this, it was possible to renovate Castle Saalhof.

Beautiful setting and marvellous accomodation

  • 5 out of 5
Kathrin made us very welcome. We rented the entire second floor for a big birthday celebration for the whole family (they arrived from UK, USA and Czech Republic). The accomodation was wonderful, the scenery is all you would expect and we had the time of our lives.

Wonderful Castle Stay

  • 5 out of 5
Our family--our grown son, daughter and son-in-law, grandson, husband and myself--enjoyed three delightful days and nights at your lovely castle farmhouse! The beautiful countryside surrounding your home was so peaceful, and we especially enjoyed the history you provided about this wonderful establishment. I would certainly want to stay with you again any time we might return to your area. Everything about your home and your family made us feel welcome and comfortable! Our rooms were spacious, beds were comfortable, and the kitchen was handy for the meals we chose to have in-sight. We especially enjoyed the fresh baked rolls from the local bakery each morning. Our hosts were extremely helpful, giving us a chance to do laundry, directions around the area, and local history.
