Pilgrimage inn "Kirchentalwirt"

Eat - drink - vacation

Whether you just want to eat well, go on a pilgrimage or plan a holiday in the mountains – you are always welcome at Gasthof Maria Kirchental!

Our inn is located in a beautiful and energetic high valley in the Salzburger Saalachtal. Here you will find absolute peace and pure nature. The imposing pilgrimage church – popularly known as “Pinzgau Cathedral” – is in the immediate vicinity.

Our inn offers a restaurant, various lounges, a hall (also seminar room), a sunny garden with a fantastic view and various guest rooms.
We spoil you with culinary delicacies from the Pinzgau region from “grandma’s kitchen” and home-style Austrian delicacies. Since we always cook fresh and based on what is available on the local market, we also offer one or two daily specials every day.

Our guest rooms with bathrooms were renovated last year and can be booked with breakfast or – on request – with half board for one night, a (cuddly) weekend or a longer holiday. Our 2- and 3-bed rooms let you wake up rested every day and after a good breakfast in the fresh mountain air, you can start every new day of your holiday feeling refreshed.

We are also happy to offer seminars to interested parties:
Try “forest bathing”, a special form of recreation. Or take part in our herbal seminars and related cooking classes. In the “incense seminar” you will learn how to get negative energies out of your home. Information about the seminars is available on request.

Come to us in the Kirchentalwirt – we look forward to seeing you!
