One more month, then it’s Mother’s Day again. This year, May 12 is the day on which we show our mothers our special love for them. Especially in these times of hardship, we should take every opportunity to be there for each other and show others how much we love them.

We have been celebrating Mother’s Day in Austria for almost 100 years, since 1924. Today, this day is often only seen from a commercial perspective. It is interesting to bear in mind that Mother’s Day originated in the women’s movement of the late 19. and early 20. century emerged. Quite simply to pay more attention to what mothers achieve and accomplish every day.

Tips for a successful day

Think about what you want to do at an early stage. Don’t stress yourself out by waiting until the last minute.

Score points with something personal. For example, a trip to your mother’s favorite place or give her the gift of a shopping trip to her favorite store.

Giving the gift of time together. The older you get, the more you enjoy spending time with your loved ones. In times of the pandemic, you have to get a little more creative. Outdoor activities are ideal here. Or several Mother’s Days with the individual family members.

For the sake of your mother and yourself, get tested just before Mother’s Day. So you can celebrate safely and completely relaxed.

IMLAUER for Mother’s Day

If you need a few ideas or suggestions, we have put together a small list here:

We are once again offering a festive Mother’s Day menu on this day. It remains to be seen whether the menu will be take-away or can be enjoyed on site in our restaurants.

How about a city trip to Vienna or Salzburg? Imperial Vienna with its many sights and the romantic, baroque Salzburg with its enchanting old town. Both cities are always worth a visit and our hotels in Vienna and
are the perfect base for a great stay.

For those who prefer to be close to nature, the
IMLAUER Hotel Schloss Pichlarn
is the best choice. Whether it’s a romantic weekend with your wife, a wellness break for mother and daughter or cycling and hiking with the whole family – there are plenty of opportunities for lots of lovely surprises.

Or surprise your mother with a breakfast on the
roof terrace. With a magnificent view of Hohensalzburg Fortress. If you prefer romance, surprise your wife with a candlelight dinner. The rooftop terrace is particularly magical at sunset.

If you can’t decide yet, or prefer to leave the decision to your mother/wife/grandmother, the IMLAUER pleasure vouchers might be the right thing for you. You can redeem them in all our establishments in Salzburg, Vienna and Schloss Pichlarn.

Whatever you decide – we wish you a successful Mother’s Day surprise. And we wish the mothers all the love and friends that they themselves give away every day!
