If you travel from Salzburg to the IMLAUER Hotel Schloss Pichlarn, you can do so on one of the most beautiful routes in Austria, the Austrian Romantic Road. Beautiful landscapes, magnificent views and world-famous sights and excursion destinations await you.

Follow us on the Austrian Romantic Road, which will take you from Salzburg to Aigen in the Styrian Enns Valley in about 1 hour and 50 minutes, where you can spend wonderful vacation days in our beautiful 5-star resort IMLAUER Hotel Schloss Pichlarn.

Austria’s lake paradise

The route starts from Salzburg on the B 158, past the Gaisberg and the Salzburgring to Lake Fuschl. It offers a wonderful gateway to the Salzkammergut with its crystal-clear lakes, wild and romantic mountain panoramas and lush colors. The road runs parallel to the long side of the lake for approx. 4 km.

If you prefer to take the highway (A1) for the first stretch, you can drive to Mondsee and change to the country road (B 154) there. The route continues along the Mondsee towards Wolfgangsee, where you meet the B 158 again.

The picturesque towns of St. Gilgen, St. Wolfgang and Strobl on Lake Wolfgangsee are perfect for a short break. If you have the time and inclination, climb the 1,793 m high Schafberg with the Schafberg cable car and enjoy the breathtaking view over Lake Wolfgangsee and the Salzkammergut.

This beautiful city is definitely worth a visit. Here you can experience the imperial flair of days gone by and visit the rooms of the imperial villa and the Marmorschlössl.

2024 is a special year for Bad Ischl, as it is, together with the Salzkammergut
European Capital of Culture
and offers a rich cultural program with numerous events and exhibitions.

World-famous sights

From Bad Ischl, continue south on the B 145, past the Predigtstuhl and the Ewige Wand. After Bad Goisern you have the option of changing to the B 166 to make a detour to Hallstatt and Lake Hallstatt.

In addition to the picturesque historic town, a salt mine, a boat trip on Lake Hallstatt and the Hallstatt Skywalk offer unforgettable views.

The official Romantic Road ends in Hallstatt. The onward journey on the B 145 is no less romantic and worth seeing.

The Styrian Salzkammergut

As you continue on the B 145, you will now reach the border with Styria and soon come to Bad Aussee. Here you can take a detour to beautiful Altaussee and Lake Altaussee, or to Lake Grundlsee and Lake Toplitz.

As you continue on the B 145 to Bad Mitterndorf and past the Tauplitz, you have your first magnificent views of the north side of the majestic Grimming, Europe’s largest stand-alone mountain block. Incidentally, the Tauplitz is a wonderful skiing and hiking area that you can reach from our hotel in 15 minutes.

When you pass the Grimming, you should definitely take a look to the top left. Up there you will discover the small but enchanting village of Pürgg, which you should definitely visit during your stay at Schloss Pichlarn.

Now it is only a few minutes by car and you have arrived in Aigen and our IMLAUER Hotel Schloss Pichlarn. Take a seat in our new conservatory with a unique view of the Grimming and reflect on your wonderful journey.

We wish you a pleasant journey and a relaxing stay at the IMLAUER Hotel Schloss Pichlarn!
