Wife and myself had such a wonderful experience of Austria, Zell am see and the hotel Gruener Baum. We got a warm friendly welcome and our room 142 had the mountain view we had wished for. Our room in the main centre building has been recently renovated and was first class in all aspects, even heated floor in bathroom with shower and seperate bath. The hotel is in the centre of town with everything reachable in a couple of minutes. We arrived by train from Munich via Salsburg with magnificent mountain views along the way and had a 5 minute walk from station to hotel even wheeling two suitcases.
Beakfast had plenty of choice and we dined in the hotel restaurant on a couple of nights, it was all very good and got to meet a lovely Norweigan couple. The staff were so helpful and friendly.
Zell am See was beautiful and had much to offer as we both enjoy outdoors and hiking. Day one we walked the lap of the lake, brilliant. Day two we walked to the top of the Smittenhoen, local mountain, 2000mtrs and back down again, took us 6 1/2 hours, magnificent. Day three we took local bus to base of Kirstenhein Mountain and three cable cars later were at 3024mtrs and enjoying the breathtaking delights of the Alps. Day four another local bus took us to Krimml waterfall the 5th heighest in the world and walked to the top of the 800mtr falls.
Day five we had to rest and then go home to Ireland. We certainly achieved all we wanted to do on this memorable trip to a very special place, Zell am See. Many thanks to the Gruener Baum for your service and hospitality and brilliant Austrian welcome.
