Camping in Austria’s mountains

Experience nature in the Salzburg region

Nestled between the Loferer Steinberge mountains and the Berchtesgaden Alps, between the villages of St. Martin and Lofer, Camping Grubhof sits on the border between Salzburg, Tyrol and Bavaria in Germany. Grubhof is the starting point for a vast range of activities that will make your camping holiday in Salzburg one to remember. St. Martin bei Lofer has kept its countryside character to this day. The landscape is just as authentic as the people. Culture and tradition are lived and breathed, and the welcoming Salzburg hospitality – such as that of Family Stainer & the Grubhof team – comes from the heart.

Discover the region of the Salzburg Saalach Valley & its villages of St. Martin, Weißbach and Unken. Discover the wild, romantic natural landscape as well as countless sport and leisure opportunities, for active camping holidays in summer and in winter alike. The "Mozart city" of Salzburg and Berchtesgaden are less than an hour away from Lofer.

Impressive mountain landscapes and gentle alpine meadows

The giant peaks of the Loferer and Leoganger Steinberge mountains as well as the Berchtesgaden Alps stand out against the blue skies and green meadows. These rock formations have been shaped by water – the most impactful element in the Salzburg Saalach Valley. Discover wild and romantic gorges, mythical caves, deep ravines, dark forests as well as lush green meadows and mountain pastures.

Experience & protect nature – Nature Park Weißbach

As we all know, pristine nature isn’t a given. The Salzburg Saalach Valley has a wealth of natural alpine environments. Wild water, rugged stone mountains and gentle mountain meadows make up the landscape. So that we, visitors and locals, can continue to enjoy the nature of our homeland, we see it as our duty to do our bit to not just consume nature, but to protect it, too. For this reason, we are a sponsoring member of the Nature Park in Weißbach.
