Overview

Photos and Description of this Maishofen holiday castle

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: Relax and enjoy the warmth in our two outside "Sauna Barrels", our infrared-sauna for 4 persons or our classical Finnish sauna for 10 persons.

Take a break from the daily routine in our modern wellness-area.

Our relaxation room and terrace are fitted with sunloungers and are directly nearby the outside Sauna facilities.

The large picture window offers a great view of the "Hohe Tauern" National Park.

And afterwards? Cool down in the snow? Or enjoy our relaxation room with a book on one of our loungers made out of massive natural wood?

A sunbath on our terrace is tempting during sunny weather. A view of the astonishing mountains of the National Park "Hohe Tauern" is guaranteed by our large picture windows.

And maybe enjoy a refreshing glass of spring water from the mountains?

This - and more - awaits you!

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

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.

Farm stay: 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, we offer a BBQ with our homemade products from our farm.

About Kathrin Rieder

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

Kathrin Rieder purchased this castle in 1840

Why Kathrin Rieder chose Pinzgauer Saalachtal

The Saalhof Castle has been in family posession since 1840.

What makes this castle unique

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

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

The property is gorgeous and very well kept.

  • 5 of 5

The location is amazing. Great mountain views! We met up with two other families and rented an entire floor. All of the rooms were well-decorated and had great amenities. The owners allowed us to take part in some of the animal care. Free fresh milk daily!!! The property is ideal for kids. There is a fenced-in yard with playground equipment, sandbox and riding toys. As a part of the stay, we had a guided hike up to the family's mountain home. We added a BBQ to our stay as we were all arriving in the evening and didn't feel like cooking or finding food. The BBQ was a family event with amazing homecooked food. We also took advantage of being able to purchase freshly baked bread each morning. Awesome! We even bought several jams and liquors made there at the castle. We highly recommend staying here and are already planning another stay!

Summer Mountain Holiday

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful time staying here. The owners are wonderful and the location is spectacular. This is a real farm owned by a family that pays a lot of attention to detail. The castle successfully blends old and new. There are great hikes available right from the castle. I will be back this coming summer with my family.

Ein super Jahreswechsel

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten mit insgesamt 5 Familien das ganze Schloss gebucht und haben über Sylvester eine sehr schöne Woche verbracht. Die Appartements sind sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und sehr sauben. Absolut spitze waren die erstklassigen Matratzen und die gemütliche Grillhütte. Sehr nette Vermieter, die uns nahezu jeden Wunsch erfüllt haben. Jeden Tag gab es frische Eier und Milch direkt von den hauseigenen Hühnern oder Kühen. Saalbach oder Zell am See zum Skifahren nur wenige Minuten entfernt... Insgesamt für uns alle eine tolle Woche...

Liebe Gruesse

Familie Silke und Christian T.
