Located close to the regional capital of Salzburg and on the border with Bavaria, Großgmain is a charming holiday village in a rural agricultural setting.
The epithet "Auf der Gmain" ("on the Gmain") was formerly used to denote the farmsteads scattered around the foothills of the impressive Untersberg mountain range as well as the 700-year old settlements on either side of the Weissbach river: Großgmain in Austria, and Gmain in Bavaria.
Nowadays, Großgmain is the perfect starting point for visitors wishing to explore the area. Salzburg, Berchtesgaden and Bad Reichenhall are an easy 20 minute journey away. Whether you're wanting a relaxing or action-packed holiday, you'll find this website a useful source of information on accommodation, eating out, day trips and visitor attractions.
