Experience tradition, and celebrate with new friends

In no other province of Austria is the shooting tradition so developed as in the province of Salzburg. Find out about this centuries-old tradition and see how you compare with the Lungau shooters, including crossbow shooting like in the times of William Tell.

Day 1:
  • Arrival. Welcome to the ****Wastlwirt Romantic Hotel & Spa. Move into your cosy room and relax on the wellness island with its large indoor pool.
  • Welcome drink at about 06.00 pm with hotel information and slide show about the tradition of shooting, as well as the range of other things to see and do in Southern Salzburgerland and the UNESCO certified biosphere Lungau.
  • Then the pleasure culinarium from the Rauchkuchl – the unique show kitchen, serving up typical specialities of the region.
Day 2:
  • After a delicious breakfast from the Rauchkuchl, you then experience one of the typical traditional events in Lungau (dependent on your holiday dates). In the afternoon, enjoy a special Lungau farm visit. The farmer, Martina welcomes you to the Neuhauseralm, and after a look around the farm, there are then horse-drawn carriage rides and short walks, for example around the Neuhauser pool, with a view of the fascinating Lungau mountains. After that, traditional alpine hut entertainment in the Almstadl with a traditional snack, accompanied by folk music.
  • In the evening, pleasure culinarium from the Rauchkuchl.
  • Then the meeting of riflemen with the riflemen’s guard of St. Michael in their clubhouse, followed by an indoor rifle shooting contest and some relaxed, friendly time together.
Day 3:
  • After a delicious breakfast from the Rauchkuchl, your host Rudi Baier shows you his homeland: the trip takes you to, amongst other places, Schloss Moosham and to Mauterndorf Castle, the Prebersee lake (world famous for its water target shooting), to the pilgrimage church of St Leonhard, and the Silent Night Museum in Mariapfarr, with a wonderful crib display and the desk where Joseph Moor wrote the text for this world-famous Carol in 1816. You then take the 8 seater gondola lift up the Großeck to the Panoramaalm, where you can have a walk and enjoy some refreshment.
  • Crossbow competition with the local "Stachelschützen" from Bundschuh or water target shooting with Alpine hut entertainment and awards ceremony.
  • In the evening, a sumptuous Salzburg meal; a 5 course dinner with traditional music. Goodbye cocktail with your new friends.
