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.
