  • 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....

    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.

    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.
