Holidays with the dog in Salzburg

Those who find the right dog-friendly hotel have more fun when on holiday

Dogs, as they say, are man’s best friend. And your best friend is someone you’d want to have around as often as possible. Spending time with him. Making sure he’s fine. And this, of course, is easiest when on holiday – when everyone is relaxed, at ease and enjoying togetherness. That’s why dogs are warmly welcome in Hotel CESTRA GRAND. Because even the best of friends should be well looked after.

The dog friendly 4****superior hotel

Dogs merely being tolerated is not enough to make for a pleasant stay. It is much nicer and more relaxed for all involved if dogs are expressly welcome – and plenty of options are also available to them. Like in the Hotel CESTA GRAND in Bad Gastein. The decidedly dog-friendly hotel pays attention not only to the well-being of its human guests. The four-legged friends receive a welcome and a leaving gift, may enter the lobby, the bar and the café, have their own dog station and, above all, numerous options for extensive walks and treks. On request you’ll receive hiking tips for excursions with your dog as well as a personal hiking map at reception. And those who want can even make use of the professional dog sitting – and rest fully assured: the little darling is in the best of hands.

What do I have to bear in mind when on holiday with my dog?

Travelling can, of course, be stressful for a dog. It is therefore important that the destination is carefully selected and the journey to get there is well-planned. That means: Several stages and breaks are necessary to allow for your dog’s needs. For journeys within the EU, specific entry requirements apply to dogs which you should read up on beforehand. For journeys within the EU, the dog must the chipped in any event and its owner always carry the EU pet passport, in which all vaccinations are listed. Those who have found the right destination – one where your dog has enough space to run around and play – and have arrived there, in the ideal case will have more animal benefits than just a bowl on the room. Taking your dog on a city trip is not always the optimal choice. It is much better to find a suitable dog guesthouse with dog sitting in the country or in the mountains, where there is plenty to discover in the surroundings: forests and meadows, mountains and pastures. Hiking and exploring nature here while breathing in the fresh air is a true highlight not just for humans.

All the benefits for a holiday with your dog in Hotel CESTA GRAND in Gastein / Salzburg:
