Love, love me do?
When Beatlemania swept the continent in the 60s, Obertauern became the heart of the pop music world for a brief moment in the winter of 1965. It was the location for the filming of the Beatles movie “Help!”. The locals, in true mountain folk fashion, were not impressed by the four. According to some accounts, a good amount of people hadn’t even heard of the Beatles. In Obertauern, the most popular men on the planet could suddenly be themselves and have some fun and time away from the limelight. They seemed to really love their time in the Alps and especially enjoyed their time at the bar of what is now Obertauern [PLACESHOTEL]. And so it was at the Marietta hotel, as it was then called, that the Beatles gave their only (unofficial) concert ever in Austria for a crew member’s birthday.
