Winter holidays in Salzburg.

Active fun on the ice of Lake Fuschl and on the pistes of the Salzkammergut.

In winter the Waldhof is transformed into a winter wonderland nestled on the shores of a quite different Lake Fuschl. The crystal, sugar coated mountains and the twinkling lights of Advent are reflected on the wintery surface of the lake. The snow covers the landscape in a glistening shroud of tranquillity. The atmosphere is peaceful, the air crisp, the Waldhof aglow and welcoming.

A winter holiday at the Waldhof near Salzburg is a time to relax, unwind and to enjoy the cosy atmosphere inside and the invigorating air outside. A snug, warm feeling will come over you in our Sauna World: warm, inviting winter pleasure while it snows and storms outside. A soothing herbal oil massage will give you time to let your thoughts wander and to day dream. And when you've had enough relaxation then it's time for action: An endless range of leisure and sporting activities await you in and around the four star Superior Hotel Waldhof.
