  • Traditional/Local Food

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Salzburg Restaurants

    One way to save money when traveling around German speaking countries is to eat in butcher shops or Metzgerei in German. It is a great way to try local foods and do it cheaply too. It can be foreboding if you don't speak any German but everything is on display so you can always point if no one speaks English. Don't worry about the prices either....

    Badgastein Off The Beaten Path

    During our stay in Badgastein we rented bikes (at our hotel, but there is also a sports store near the train station where you can rent bikes) and went on a bike ride to Böckstein, south of Badgastein. It's a short but beautiful trip. Unlike the streets of Badgastein, there are no steep hills on the way to Böckstein.

    Badgastein Favorites

    I can't speak of a fondest memory, more memorable memory. At the time we were in Austria there was very bad weather in the first days of our holiday. Several roads were difficult to drive on. River Salzach was almost flooding and in Mittersill the town really flooded. On our way to Badgastein the road was full of mud that came down the mountain....

  • Eisriesenwelt - Fantastic ice caves

    Werfen Things to Do

    Eisriesenwelt makes for a fantastic visit. I can very much recommend it as a visit for the entire family. The only thing you have to take into consideration is that inside the cave you have to climb a lot of stairs, 700 up and then 700 down again.The walk to the caves is on a decent path but goes uphill the entire way. About the Werfen cavesThe...

  • The Golden Grape

    Golling an der Salzach Restaurants

    We visited the restaurant on 17 May 2012. We paid 43 euro for the two of us. Cosy atmosphere with wooden furniture and thick walls. Unfortunately we could only be seated in the smoking area. And there were some dogs as well, but that had to do with a nearby international meeting of dog lovers, so I trust you will not find as many dogs in the area...

    Saalbach Things to Do

    There really isn't much to say about skiing in Saalbach except that the mountains known as Schattberg and Zwölferkogel are the best ones in the area.

  • Bus system(if you can call it that)

    Gastein Transportation

    Most of this bus tip applies to the winter ski season. Skiing in Bad Gastein consists of three different towns and basically four different ski mountains. If you don't have an auto and want to ski more than one ski mountain(you probably will), then you will need to use the bus systems there and it is confusing and not very well planned.Basically,...

  • Taxi's charge per person

    Gastein Transportation

    All of the taxi's that we saw in Bad Gastein were the mini buss verity, so for the first couple of days we assumed, like in almost every other city in the world, that the more people in the taxi to split the fare, the better. WRONG !!! In Bad Gastein, they charge for each person in the taxi, so don't bother looking for people to share the expense,...

    Gastein Things to Do

    There is a very large waterfall in the centre of Gastein and nice mountains in the area. Gasteiner mineralwater tastes very good and you could buy it everywhere in Austria. 100 years ago Gastein was for rich and famous people only, now many hotelbeds stay empty, but I really liked it there !

  • Benches along the way up the mountain

    Schmitten Things to Do

    Schmittenhohe is a very friendly mountain to do hiking because of the well paved paths, good maps and signages and perhaps the most important are the benches situated nicely along the way. Some of these benches provide very good views e.g. Zell am See and Zeller See lake, views of the other side of the mountain.

  • Trees and wood

    Schmitten Favorites

    Schmittenhohe is a mountain which is heavily forested, with skiing trails forming spider-web designs among the forests. When you are at Schmittenhohe, you will see the beautiful forests along the slopes of the mountain, as well as cut wood being stored at the premises of the various restaurants located on this mountain.

  • Houses & architecture

    Schmitten Favorites

    We chanced into 4-star Hotel Bruckenwirt and had the boiled beef (served at the table) and went for a 20-minute baked chicken leg, which was out of this world. The boiled beef was delicious and the chef did a great job. We hypotheses that Kaiser Franz Joseph may have lost his grinders & molars when boiled beef was the rage. Boiled beef and baked...
