“Excellent Accommodation.”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

We found the Gruener Anger Gasthof in Hallstatt fantastic.
Our 2 night stay could have been longer.
Room #106 was clean, comfy beds, free wifi, balcony, all suited our needs exactly.
On site parking was great. Pension is in a nice quiet location, just a short walk to the old town and local supermarket if needed.
Breakfast was excellent and very adequate, Familie Sulzbacher are very attentive to detail.
We arrived early and were able to leave our luggage at the Pension, whilst we went to the Krippenstein/Dachstein Cable Car, (for which Andrea gave us directions and a discount coupon), this a must do when you are in Hallstatt,, just fantastic views.
The set dinner for 11 Euro's was fantastic, the fish was just superb.
We happened to be in Hallstatt on Corpus Christi day, what and amazing day.
We look forward to returning to Hallstatt (one of our most favourite places) and staying at the Gruener Anger Gasthof.
Thank-you Gottfried and Andrea.

We stayed just one night in Hallstatt, and Herr Sulzbacher helped us with everything. He has ferry schedules, bus schedules, got us a cab in under 5 minutes, picks up guests at the ferry dock (a pleasant 10 minute walk along the lake, but the pick-up is nice for those with lots of luggage), and even provided discount coupons for activities. The multi-course set dinner, as others have said, was delicious, and worth twice the 11 euro price. Full breakfast, very good.

The salt mine tour was fun, but our favorite was taking the Dachstein cable car up the mountain to the ice caves and the panoramic view from the top (five fingers). Fabulous hiking, and just about the most beautiful place on earth.

We were a party of 8 and arrived early at Hallstatt. Gottfried kindly picked up our luggage from the pier and we took the opportunity to roam the Old Town before checking into the pension later. The pension is situated in a quiet private area within walking distance of the Old Town, the funicular to the salt mine, a small park adjoining the lake, and the supermarket. It is also on the path to the Waldbach (temperate forest, rushing creek, rapids, waterfall). Highly recommend a walk in that area (it will take 3-4 hours return at the very least for a comfortable walk). The rooms in Gruner Anger were clean and comfortable. A small kettle and coffee cups were also available for use. The buffet breakfast was good with a varied spread, and the buffet was frequently replenished. The set dinner was delicious and really value-for-money at 11euros. Some of us had fish, which was excellent. Others had meat which was just as good. The dessert was so prettily presented. For those hooked on social media, yes, wi-fi is available. Apart from our enjoyable stay, corresponding with the pension via email was a breeze - inquiries were answered promptly. The hosts, Andrea and Gottfried, were very helpful. Gottfried provided information about public transport and what options there were considering our group size. I stayed in another hotel in Hallstatt in the past but I would recommend Gruner Anger, and will probably stay there if I ever went back again.

Just want to share my experience at Grunge Anger. Stayed there May 18th for 2 nights. The host picked us up from the ferry dock which was wonderful. Check in was a breeze along with the explanation of where everything is located. You can also find all the info in the b&b. Breakfast was fantastic. It had anything and everything. I dont remember the room number but it was on the 2nd floor right at the back. No complaints what so ever. Room was big, our own bathroom and it was very clean. Overall a great stay.

Check out the salt mines and have a drink at the restaurant on top. Breast taking views.

Happy travels

Our 2 nights stay @ Gruener Anger left us with fond memories of Hallstatt. Rooms 107 & 108 have lovely balcony views. Although we had a car, we walked or bicycled. It was so nice to walk and admire the beauty of this UNESCO World Heritage town.

Gruener Anger's location is good and in a quiet locale and the town centre is about 15 min walk. Room is cosy and comfortable and breakfast is ample. What impressed us most is the excellent value and quality of its delicious set dinner @ Euro 11 pp comprising of soup, salad, main course and dessert. If you decide to stay here, do choose the halfboard and enjoy the dinner . Highly recommended!

Hallstatt is indeed very picturesque & best photographic views can be captured from Gosaumuehlstrasse north of the ferry landing and the other from Lahn Landing. My favourite souvenirs from Hallstatt are the A3-size laminated tablemats featuring the beautiful iconic views. They have pride of place on my dining table.

For a fantastic dizzying view of Hallstatt from up high (360 metres), we took the Salt Mines funicular @ Euro 13 pp & the panorama lift to reach the Hallstatt Sky Walk (Viewing Platform).
It was a clear sunny April day and what a spectacular view! This pointy-shaped protruding viewing platform offers another sensational panoramic perspective, if you don't have heights phobia. Kudos to great engineering feat. Highly recommended!

We stayed here in May 2014, and found the room great, ensuite huge, staff great and location perfect. 5-7 minute walk to centre of old town, and less than 2 minutes to the cable car for the salt mines. And the town itself is a hidden treasure, just beautiful on the picturesque lake.
