Tradition and love of one's native land is very important to the inhabitants of Marktschellenberg. It already became a small market town in the 13th century and is well known across borders since because of its charming place and living traditions.
Saltmining and also socalled 'Untersberger marble' quarrying was done in the early days. Due to the marble one of this small village's attraction is Germany's last mill to create marble balls, and they still are produced today.
Especially families with children will enjoy their holiday on a farm, in a private family or in an inn here, but also such who are in need of rest.
Hike along the wild and romantic Almbachklamm, to the village Ettenberg and see the pilgrimage church Maria Heimsuchung, or walk up the Untersberg and into Germanys largest ice caves.
Only in a 15 minute distance many cultural events will be found in Salzburg, the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart with its famous summer musical festival.
Marktschellenberg with its healthy climate offers also wellness weeks - in March and October - or purification weeks with medical guidance (e.g. therapeutic whey- and hey bath) for vitality and zest for life.
A variety of events on an event calendar certainly offers something for everybody. During summer one can swim nearby in a heated swimming pool open to the public.
