A warm welcome at the nature idyll Hotel Hammerschmiede**** – surrounded by nature, only 9km from Salzburg
Personal service and a natural hospitality
are the cornerstones of our privately run 4* hotel
Where once the hammers of blacksmiths echoed, you find today’s hotel „Hammerschmiede“, located in the middle of a romantic forest, yet only 9 kilometers away from Salzburg. With a great, refreshing air to breathe and an enjoyable silence, you’ll find yourself in a small paradise – and it’s opened all the year round!
In addition to seminars, hydrotherapy and swimming in the floating creek, there are also numerous hiking paths to explore. To get to Salzburg you can choose among different affordable transfer methods to the city.
Spacious rooms and suites in an elegant country-style, a woodland terrace, cosy dining rooms, a kitchen with delicious regional food and a rich breakfast are part of our service.
The former forge has been redesigned to be a romantic guest room for parties and celebrations. Culinary delights are prepared over open fire and if you wish, you’ll receive your own forged horseshoe which will bring you luck!
We are looking forward to your visit!

The Kneipp Treatment Methods
As a certified Kneipp hotel in Austria, we invite our guests to learn and experience the tried and tested healing knowledge by Sebastian Kneipp.
The focus is on the Kneipp teaching with the 5 pillars of health:
water – exercise – medicinal herbs – nutrition – enjoyment of life
An original Kneipp facility with a herb garden is located directly at the hotel.
The bypassing creek with its waterfall provides an additional Kneipp experience.
The “Alte Hammerschmiede” (old forge)
The “Alte Hammerschmiede”, located opposite the hotel, was built around 1730 and, after the former blacksmith’s trade was closed, it serves as a particularly unique location for parties and celebrations. The integrated smithy museum with iron tools and workpieces bears witness to the earlier heyday of the blacksmith’s craft. The old hammer mill with centuries-old walls and visible fireplaces now offers a particularly original setting for cozy parties and celebrations.
