Come and enjoy an ‘alpine living room’ that is renowned far beyond the locality for its exceptional ambiance and atmosphere and whose charm invites all to linger awhile and to relish its delights. In this rustic setting we celebrate sophisticated regional cuisine of the very best - and it is this seeming contradiction that makes Oberforsthof Alm so appealing.
Our ‘Alm’ is situated in the Alpendorf near St Johann im Pongau and offers a wonderful view of the Salzach valley at the heart of the Salzburg region.
It isn’t only connoisseurs who are in the best hands with us. We also know a thing or two about partying! ‘Welcome, Party People’ is one of the meanings of our motto, ‘Nothing’s a sin at the Alm!’ Whether it be an aprés ski, the night before a wedding, a club or society event or another occasion - we’re delighted to arrange parties of all kinds for you where the celebrations can go on into the early hours.
