Muttertag - Vatertag - Puch

Celebrate with your favourite people in Salzburg

Every year on the 2nd Sunday in May, Austria celebrates MOTHER"S DAY in honour of all mothers and grandmothers, just as on the 2nd Sunday in June, FATHER"S DAY is celebrated in honour of all fathers, dads and grandpas. Many people in Salzburg use both days as an opportunity to buy small gifts or go on outings with the whole family. For this purpose, children learn poems by heart, paint gift cards and like to make something as a small gift.

I have summarised here what you can find in Puch for suitable gifts and what you can experience on these holidays with your family on excursions in the surrounding area.

6 Gift Tips for Him and Her from Puch

Let yourself be inspired and pick up a suitable gift for your parents or grandparents from Puch. Here you"re sure to find something for the upcoming Mother"s Day or Father"s Day in June.

Sweet and delicious

You can get delicious pastries from the Süsserei by Theresa Jahoda from Thursday to Saturday in the confectionery with a small café directly in town and outside opening hours daily at the neighbouring Kirchenwirt. For the coming Mother"s Day, there are Mother"s Day hearts and vanilla mousse cake with strawberries or raspberries available to order in advance (by 3 p.m. on Thursday at Tel. 0664/5652662). There will also be Sacher cubes and chocolate tartelettes specially decorated for the occasion. Theresa Jahoda has something for every sweet tooth - guaranteed!

Pleasure on the palate

Would you like something high-proof for mum or dad? The Hetz family distils more than 10 different types of fruit, such as plum, apple, Williams pear, rowan berry and apricot. The brandies are available from the farm at the Grubenbauer in the centre of Puch - Tel. 0664 5060016. The fruits collected in autumn are processed into the finest brandies in the cold winter season. When the fruit is ripe, it is collected by hand, stored as mash and then distilled in the distillery into high-proof drops.

Flowers for every occasion

You can"t go wrong with a bouquet of flowers, a decorative accessory or a seasonal arrangement, especially for mothers. You can find the right flower greeting at Blumenwerk Helga in the middle of the village. For Mother"s Day, she has extended opening hours for you: Friday and Saturday from 8.30-18.00 and Sunday from 8.30-13.00!

For well-being

Whether you"re a man or a woman, good for the body is good for everyone! So you certainly won"t go wrong with a gift set from the Arnika Apotheke Puch. From various teas, creams, masks and peelings to hot-water bottles & Co, you are sure to find something suitable for your loved ones for Mother"s and Father"s Day.

Sporty, Sporty

For adventurers and outdoor freaks, the Bergspezl in Puch is sure to have the perfect gift in store for you. Whether it"s clothing, shoes or bicycles, you"ll find the perfect equipment for the next family outing. Small accessories such as carabiners, drinking bottles and scarves are also part of the extensive range, ideal for a small gift.

Gift vouchers

You don"t want to give away anything perishable or you"re just not sure what to get your loved ones? Then you"re on the safe side with a voucher. Whether in the confectionery, the flower shop or in one of the other shops and restaurants in Puch, you can get a gift voucher with the desired amount everywhere.

The Puch vouchers, which can be redeemed in all businesses, are easier for you to decide and offer more advantages for the recipient. The vouchers are available in three different value units at the tourist office in the municipal office: 5, 10 and 25 euros!

Pucher Gastro is open for you

What could be better for a mother or a father than not having to worry about anything on one day, especially if you don"t have to spend several hours in the kitchen on your special day? Many take advantage of the first warm temperatures to barbecue for their loved ones. However, it is most relaxing for everyone to simply let themselves be cooked for. It"s best to reserve a table right away or order your Lielings dishes to pick up - the following Pucher restaurants are open on Sundays or holidays and look forward to your visit:

10 excursion tips for the whole family on Mother"s Day and Father"s Day

Thanks to Puch"s central location, you have a great choice of excursions! What do you like to do with your family? Here are my tips for an excursion with young and old:

  1. Go for ice cream in Hallein or in the city of Salzburg.
  2. Walk in the fresh air. Read "10 free themed walks in Salzburg" or "Excursion tips: Discover Salzburg"s city mountains".
  3. Have a bathing day! Visit the nearby baths such as the Watzmanntherme, Rupertustherme, Heiltherme Bad Vigaun or the Aqua Salza in Golling. The outdoor swimming pool in Hallein is also open again and offers leisure fun for the whole family.
  4. Animal lovers will love a trip to Salzburg Zoo.
  5. Make yourself comfortable with popcorn and go to the cinema. The  Stadtkino Hallein, the Cineplexx Airport or Das Kino are sure to have the right cinema programme for you.
  6. Enjoy a horse-drawn carriage ride through the city of Salzburg and let us show you the most beautiful places in the world-famous city of Mozart.
  7. Bike tour to one of the beautiful natural sites in the Tennengau, such as the Gollinger waterfall or the Lammerklamm gorge in Scheffau. Tip: on Mother"s Day, admission to the Lammerklamm is free for mothers!
  8. Alpine hike! Numerous farmed alpine pastures await you in Salzburgerland. From Puch I recommend a hike to the Erentrudisalm or Fageralm!
  9. Immerse yourself in the world of the Middle Ages and become a damsel or knight! Discover the exciting stories of times gone by at Festung Hohen Salzburg, Burg Hohenwerfen or Burg Mauterndorf.
  10. If you are looking for fun and variety, mini-golf might be something for you. The 18-hole Filzminigolfanlage beim Gasthaus Traunstein at the Traunstein Inn in Abtenau is open from 1 May to 31 October.
