Rauris Valley

Your vacation spot at the Hotel Garni Wieshof

Rauris in the Hohe Tauern National Park is a place with history and traditions – and the ideal starting point for a hiking or skiing holiday in Austria. In this pristine valley, tradition and customs have remained unadulterated. Authentic local festivals are real adventure treasures for the guests, far removed from tourist stagings. Anyone who spends their vacation in Rauris is involved in the daily life of the population and feels well accepted.

The Rauris Literature Days take place once a year, on the occasion of which well-known writers in Rauris have been reading from their works since 1970. But not only the famous Rauris Literature Days attract many visitors to the Rauris Valley every year.

Holidays in Rauris bring those interested on the trail of the history of the Salzburg region. Around 4,000 years ago, the people of Rauris came across gold. Today you still have the opportunity to visit the last traces of the golden age in Rauris on a leisurely hike and thus experience the history up close. Explore the former gold mining area and see the remains of the former miners’ houses and gold mining facilities from the 15th century.

The trade houses in the center of Rauris are particularly worth seeing. You can find out more about the history of the former gold mining in Rauris, which once helped the state of Salzburg to fame and fortune, in the valley museum and in the Zimmerhütte national park museum in Kolm-Saigurn.
