Farm & agriculture
Holiday in harmony with nature
As a farm in Salzburg we're very lucky here at the Marchlhof, to be able to produce a range of foodstuffs and energy directly on our farm ourselves or to source nearby. We are a farm with grassland, dairy cattle, cattle breeding, small animals, forest and alpine pasture. Our hunting grounds stretch from Taurachbach in the valley to the peak of the Gaisstein. Wood for our wood chip heating comes from our own forest, electricity from our own small hydropower plant. Fresh drinking water in the house and on the farm comes from our own mountain spring.
