Water - from Salzburg's landmark mountain
The pure, untreated spring water is drawn from a deep well at the foot of the nearby Untersberg, Salzburg’s landmark mountain, which stands at nearly 2000 metres.
"Those who take from nature should also give something back to nature in return."
As far back as the 15th century, Salzburg’s Archbishops already appreciated the flavour of the water from the Untersberg. They had it delivered daily on horseback for the princely banqueting table.
The Untersberg is known for its spiritual force all over the world. On the occasion of his visit to Salzburg in 1992, the Dalai Lama dubbed the mystic mountain the ‘heart-chakra of Europe’.
