Austria is a German-speaking country in Central Europe, characterized by mountain villages, baroque architecture, Imperial history and rugged Alpine terrain. Vienna, its Danube River capital, is home to the Schönbrunn and Hofburg palaces. It has counted Mozart, Strauss and Freud among its residents. The country’s other notable regions include the northern Bohemian Forest, Traunsee Lake and eastern hillside vineyards.

In Austria, one of our favorite hiking destinations is the Zillertal wherefore valleys come together right at Mayrhofen, the village where we stay. There probably are more trails within walking distance of the hotel in this location that any other place we hike. Surrounded by the rugged and lofty Zillertal Alps, the spectacular environment of Zillertal Valley is best explored on foot. Experience the natural beauty of the mountains at your own pace.
