Things to know about
Henndorf am Wallersee

Henndorf lies at 551 metres above sea level and has around 5000 inhabitants. The highest point is the "Große Plaike" (1034 m) with a wonderful view over the entire Alpine foothills.

The Wallersee: Nestled in a gentle hilly landscape, it is considered the warmest bathing lake in the region. The Henndorf lido offers bathing pleasures, fun and relaxation for young and old. The Aiderbichl estate also promises entertaining hours for young guests: there are large and small animals to look at or even pet, so time flies. Pleasure for golf lovers. The 18-hole golf club Gut Altentann offers golf course architecture in perfection.

The Literaturhaus Henndorf brings you closer to Carl Zuckmayer's time in Henndorf. The famous writer moved into the "Wiesmühl", where Zuckmayr and his family ran an open house for illustrious guests from the literary, film and intellectual scene.

The festival city of Salzburg should of course not be missing from your holiday programme and is within easy reach: only 20 kilometres from Henndorf and with good public transport connections. A recommendation for the physical well-being: culinary delights on the beautiful terrace with lake view or in front of the open fireplace in the "Weyringer Wallersee", Henndorf. 3 toques Gault Millau ...

Founded in 2009, the Literaturhaus Henndorf is considered the only rural literature house in a wide radius. It embarks on a search for traces of the literary past of the Flachgau community.

The writer Carl Zuckmayer, who lived in the Wiesmühl at home, gathered his friends Ödön von Horváth, Stefan Zweig, Max Reinhardt around him. The Literaturhaus, which was also the birthplace of Johannes Freumbichler, Thomas Bernhard's grandfather, is intended to be an open meeting place.
