Make New Friends at Gut Aiderbichl Animal Sanctuary
If you're an animal lover and you find yourself in Salzburg, make a beeline for Gut Aiderbichl. Enjoy the idyllic Austrian countryside as you stroll around the sanctuary and visit with all creatures great and small: horses, pigs, dogs, burros, goats, turkeys, bunnies, cows, even wolves. Celebrity Michael Aufhauser puts his fortune to good use by providing this shelter for abandoned and neglected animals from all over Europe and raising awareness of animal welfare issues. Most of the animals at the sanctuary wander freely around the place, and many of them are very affectionate and love attention from visitors. Visit the gift shop on your way out: all proceeds benefit the sanctuary. A trip here is sure to be a hit with young and old alike.
