The "Seelentium" region in the tri-border-area of Upper Austria, Bavaria and Salzburg is a small paradise for all those who can afford the luxury of taking the time to indulge themselves. Here, on the natural shores of dreamy lakes, on the edges of wooden moorland trails and on the banks of the ricer Salzach, time slows down. That's the area where the melody of "Silent Night, Holy Night" was born.
The name "Seelentium" is formed by three words:
"See" means "lake" - and here you'll find plenty of them! Some are ready to invite guests to take a swim in the dark water, others are part of the five natural reserves of the area and home of rare birds, animals and plants.
"Seele" means "soul" - you can feel the soul of the land, the soul of our people wherever you go. We offer true and pure Austrian hospitality as we used to handle it since centuries. And you can even find the soul of Seelentium in our traditions and in our music. Listen to "Silent Night" carefully ... can you feel it?
"Silentium" in fact is Latin language and means "quietness". Our large and deep forests, the green plains, the mystic marsh and the picturesque villages offer a holiday far away of the noise of big cities and busy attractions. The sound of nature will be your only companion.
