A holiday here in Werfenweng offers you enjoyment in an entirely different way, something worthwhile that is rare in your everyday life. We offer you time. Time to enjoy the peace and quiet. Time, to leave behind the daily grind. The idea behind it all is SAMO - our special holiday concept. "Soft Mobility" (SAMO) means environmentally friendly travel. As a "SAMO-Guest" you will have arrived here by train or you will have left your car parked in Werfenweng and handed your car keys to the Tourist Office. You can then enjoy the huge range of free "soft mobility" offers. You can enjoy your precious holiday time without noise or stress and surrounded by nature and pure, fresh air.
