Literature & Art

Recharge your mind, soul and body in the Province of Salzburg

Various works of renowned Austrian and international artists can be found at the Seehof.  The tangible results of works passionately collected over many years hangs on the walls and stands on all floors of the house.  Among them also the selected library with all Suhrkamp editions.  It is worthwhile exploring each floor!

Sepp Schellhorn Stipend

We invite artists and writers at regular intervals to join us at the Seehof, thus enabling them to work in peace and seclusion.  Several books have already been completed at the Seehof, the most current one being Vea Kaiser’s latest bestseller ‘Makarionissi’.

Helmuts meets Angelika

We have decided to give a ‘special touch’ to two newly created suites in the course of our latest major reconstruction in April 2015 by inviting friends from the art world to develop and realize the concept.  The result is overwhelming – come see for yourself!

ANGELIKA SUITE: furnished, arranged and designed by the Berlin-based publisher Angelika Taschen with contemporary modern designer furniture and photographs by Kirsten Becken.

HELMUTS SUITE: a unique gallery guest room curated by BLK river Wien with works of Austrian and international artists such as Erwin Wurm and Raymond Pettibon.

This exhibition changes twice a year.

The underlying question of philosophy since the beginning has been revolving around clarifying what clearly defines the term ‘good life’. 

Annually on the 1st of May philosophical discussions on and about THE GOOD LIFE take place here with us at the Seehof. Michael Fleischhacker (Editor-in-Chief of Nzz Österreich) discusses the meaning of life with renowned prominent people from politics, sports and art in the intimate circle of all Seehof guests.

Enjoy the great blend of art and vacation together in unison. You can pre-book your room with a non-binding holiday enquiry.
