An introduction to Aufberg 1113

How would you describe Aufberg 1113 in a nutshell?

Aufberg 1113 is one of two luxury vacation houses with two apartment rentals in the middle of the Hohe Tauern mountain range in the Austrian Alps. Such peaceful and contemplative lodgings can be found in Piesendorf in well-known Zell am See. Architect Andreas Mack set out to create nests in the mountains, with panoramic views of Kaprun Glacier and with a unique mixture of a traditional, local comforts and cutting-edge architecture. The apartments are architectural gems, made from a combination of glass, wood, and natural stone. You’ll love the Alpine charm that can be felt in both of the apartments, with lots of beautiful wood and the obligatory fireplace. The apartments at Aufberg 1113 offer a very discreet and calm setting, with modern and natural luxuries, and are the perfect apartment rental in the Alps for both summer and winter trips.

Aufberg 1113 is part of the Taxhof. Please tell me a bit about its history, the family and the farm.

The Unterberger’s family tradition on the Taxhof starts with the purchase of the property in 1687. Since then the farm was always handed down from father to son. The building itself dates back to the year 1545. The attached farm is lovingly run by my husband Matthias and home to many different kinds of animals. Nature, animals and people live together in harmony here. The traditional Inn with its famous restaurant is now lead by my two daughters Elisabeth and Katharina.

What was the inspiration to open Aufberg 1113? And why did you choose contemporary architecture for it?

Every period leaves its own traces and I wanted to create something contemporary. It’s important to look forward and to be open to new things. Back then, the architect of Aufberg 1113, Prof. Andreas Meck, was on vacation at the Taxhof. We had some interesting conversations and so I showed him the meadow. He felt the positive energy of the place and we started working together. It all started with my idea of having a kind of bird’s nest where people can feel the mountain and have a great view into the valley...

What would you describe to be the essence of Aufberg 1113 and your philosophy?

I wanted a house where you felt the warmth and security of a bird’s nest, where you don’t get disturbed, so the back is closed for protection and comfort and the front is open to maximize the views. This is a place where you will find what you have been searching for: a clear view of yourself and a new way of looking at life. It’s a little paradise.

How would you like your guests to remember their stay?

I’d like them to remember their stay at Aufberg 1113 as a unique vacation in a beautiful contemporary building with a great view of the mountains. A place where they have found themselves again.

The location of Aufberg 1113

Aufberg 1113 is in Piesendorf, in well-known Zell am See. You can come here from Munich or Salzburg Airport, both serve international flights. The apartment rentals stand 1113 meters above sea level on the southern side of the mountain and are surrounded by the Austrian mountains of the ‘Nationalpark Hohe Tauern’, a long valley with glaciers and lakes. Facing Aufberg 1113 is glacier Kitzsteinhorn and a wide panoramic view of various other mountains. The combination of the white glacier, grayish rocks and a green forest is sensational. The locals mainly live in the valley, so you will be floating high above them. And right next to the house you can start hiking up various mountain paths.

When is the best time to visit Salzburger Land?

We have four seasons: spring, summer, fall, winter. Every season is special. During spring, you see nature come back to live with loads of flowers and greenery and the conditions for skiing are still good in the area. Summer is great for water sports, golf, hiking and mountain biking or simply enjoying extended sunbaths on the terraces. Early fall in September and October is still relatively warm, ideal for hiking or just staying at home with a book. During Winter, there is usually enough snow for all winter sports and you have the warm open fireplace in your apartment.
