When I first stayed at the "Hotel Friesacher" it was a rather simple inn,(in Austria called "Gasthof") in the village of Anif, some 2 kms out of Salzburgs city limits and about 6 kms from the city center. In the course of years a bigger, modern retsurant was added and so were a disco, then another, more rustical restaurant and a "Heuriger" with excellent food and service, Soon the old gasthof was again refurbished and another, modern hotel-wing and a pool added.
Now the "Friesacher" is one of Salzburgs top hotels and a haven for everyone who loves the more serene mountain-scenery and likes to listen to the bells of the cattle, still to be heard in Anif.
Many celebrities made Anif their home, like the late Herbert von Karajan and other artists.
The hotel offers various room-types, from standard to large apartements, two-tiered studios (beware, because the upper level gets extremely hot in summer) and very good service and excellent food, to be savored also in a beautiful al-fresco garden.
Unique Quality: Traditional, rustical Salzburg hotel with excellent restaurants, embedded in the magnificient scenery of the Salzburg alps.
Directions: direction Alpenstrasse from Salzburg center to Autobahn south exit Anif village 6kms from Salzburg
