Lucys trip to Austria

may 19, 2012 09:25am

 "Austria exceeded my expectations! I stayed in Zell am See, a resort which definitely has the wow factor- fabulous mountains and the beautiful Lake Zell.

There are lots of things to do in the area including- a relaxing ferry trip on the lake, visit to Salzburg, hire a bike, or enjoy some fabulous scenic walks.

Highlights for me included the cable car up to the Schmittenhohe mountain. The scenery from up there is just magnificent and there is a café where you can enjoy the best apple strudel you will ever taste…with vanilla sauce!
Also the local train journey from Zell am See to Werfen which takes approximately 1 hour to this small town where 1 of my favourite film ‘Where Eagles Dare’ was filmed.

I stayed in the Hotel Berner, a family run hotel in a quiet location, but very close to the nearest gondola and bus station with comfortable rooms, lovely food and excellent service.

I can honestly say that this holiday was fabulous. The hills were definitely alive with The Sound of Music! "
