Zell Manor in Waidhofen/Ybbs

The former Zell Manor (Schloss Zell) serves as hotel with the name “Das Schloss an der Eisenstrasse” now. I spend a night at this building in the style of early Baroque and was especially impressed by staying that near to Rothschild Castle (Rothschildschloss) and the old part of Waidhofen/Ybbs.

Hotel Alpenrose in Lermoos

In May 2013 I got an invitation to stay at Leading Family Hotel & Resort Alpenrose in Lermoos. That was an interesting invitation because I generally travel alone. I was curious to learn what this 4 stars superior hotel had to offer for families though.
