Licensee Zell am See

“Salzburg has an ideal location – in the heart of Austria but also close to Munich. And the region has a lot to offer - its beautiful capital city on the banks of the River Salzach, famous for its culture and historic old town, as well as the mountains and lakes throughout the state. In addition to this, the local property market is developing very positively. Demand for homes and investment properties is continuing to rise, with larger properties just as popular as building plots and properties in green locations and/or with gardens. An increasing number of international clients are also turning their attention to the region.”
