Hohe Salve

Reviewed By travellingplants - London

We weren't expecting much, but the restaurant at the Hohe Salve summit at the top of the gondola from both Hopfgarten and Soll was stunning. The food was as expected for ski style cafeteria but the fixtures and decoration of the restaurant were lovely. There are large Windows with views to the Valleys below on 3 sides of the restaurant. On the day we visited the staff were very helpful and we didn't feel rushed by them to vacate the table.
Suggest a visit to the toilets. There is the usual Austrian perfect cleanliness and these toilets also have the most incredible views. Large windows with views to the surrounding Mountains. Also fitted out in solid timber doors with a lovely attention to detail.
We visited in June and it was misting rain and quite cold outside so this restaurant was a real surprise and a great way to spend an hour resting our legs after our hike.

The Austrians really know how to keep kids entertained, we found loads of great attractions for children and this was the highlight. Situated in a beautiful spot halfway up a mountain it has loads of water-based features and attractions. Our son loved it and we probably walked a good couple of miles without noticing it. It took a couple of hours or so for us to get round and he could easily have stayed longer. Plenty of nice spots to stop for a picnic.

We have been skiing for 5 years now in Westendorf. This was the first time we have had a private lesson and it definitely wont be the last. His professionalism, relaxed manner and easy to follow advise made a massive difference to our ski experience. The tips he gave to help us made such a difference to our technique. For any ski trips in the future we will definitely be making a booking with him to brush up on any flaws. Best book early though as he is very good and will fill up quickly in season. His English was also fantastic which made the whole experience enjoyable. Highly recommended no matter how advanced you are.

It's not the highest peak and, given this, the views are amazing. Fabulous that it is included with the guest card in the summer.

We had a chance to visit this place during winter time.Very nice castle that is located on standalone rock. As far as we got this is private property, therefore we could not get in.

Hintersteinersee

Reviewed By Fabbyholiday - Dunfermline, Scotland

We visited the Hintersteinersee on a warm sunny Sunday. We arrived by the free Seebus from Scheffau and stopped for a beer at the lido and just enjoyed the view. There were a number of people swimming, playing football and soaking up the sun. We continued on the open side of the lake and leisurely walked around the other side of the lake and again stopped for another drink and soaked up the view. The path is very easy to walk and was a little bit busy with traffic. The walk around the other side of the lake is through the trees and therefore no motor vehicles which was very pleasant and a little light relief from the heat of the sun. This walk can be enjoyed by everyone although there are a few steep parts through the trees. You will not be disappointed.

Ellmau Ski Resort and Village

Reviewed By florinsandu - Cluj-Napoca, Romania

The place itself is in a peacefull location, facing the Wilde Kaiser mountain. As a ski resort, i can say that it is ideal for those who want to place the kids into the school ski school to learn skiing fast. There are a lot of nice restaurants where to eat between the ski sessions. The view from the top is outstanding, due to the Wilder Kaiser solliness beauty. I will return to this area NexT year.

Fantastic place to ski as a family. Nice challenging runs with some fast gentle ones thrown in too. There are lots of fast lifts and many which are heated, which is a bonus.

The Reds Schischule Westendorf

Reviewed By alicollim - Lisburn, United Kingdom

First time skiing for my 13 year old son. His instructor Rian was EXCELLENT! Any worries of my son going alone to the class and not enjoying it completely vanished after the first day. Rian was so friendly and helpful- my son loved it and kept saying how great his instructor was- he had a natural way with kids and was just fantastic with them. The only slight down side was that there was one 6 year old in a group of older kids which I was surprised about. Although he did very well I think it was physically difficult for a younger child to keep going which meant a lot of waiting around. Not the child's fault- he was very good but I wondered why he wasn't put in a more age appropriate group by organisers? But still a great week
