My wife and I stayed at Baumann glacier room during our vist to Franz Josef. The cottage is a two storied house and can host 6 people with spacious living area and lovely bath and shower. There is also a lovely stand alone cottage which can hold up to 3 people. The view of the snow capped mountian and glacier from our window is stunning. The bed is very comfortable and the breakfast is delicious with home grown staff and cooked eggs and bacon. Our host Jo is kind and also a very cool wild life ranger with lots of knowledge of local animals and vegetation. He helped us to book the glacier helihike tour months before our trip. We were very lucky that most of the glacier tours got canceled before and after our helihike, due to the rain storm. However our trip squeezed into the brief sunshine and the view up in the glacier was breathtaking.
Thank you very much Jo, and we had a very nice time in Franz Josef.
