Ever since our trip last fall to the greater Salzburg area, we knew we’d go back. Just by luck, we happened to have found an excellent hotel, in the mountains south of Salzburg. It’s a working organic farm, high up on a hillside, overlooking a picturesque Alpine Valley. They have cats, bunnies, chickens, cows (you can stop by at milking time and see where the next day’s breakfast’s beverage comes from) and even a goat. It’s just a 20 minute drive from Salzburg, and about the same from the German border. We were lucky enough to enjoy the first snow of the season when we visited in October. This weekend, we’re going back.
Jo’s tenure here will be over soon, and we wanted to share one of our favorite parts of Austria with her before she leaves. But really, that’s just kind of an excuse — we couldn’t wait to go back. Of all the places we’ve visited so far in Austria, it’s my favorite.
We’re looking forward to a weekend of playing, relaxing, exploring and seeing some sights in Salzburg. So excited!
