The hotel is situated at a street between Zell am See and Kaprun. The train station of the Pinzgau Railway is near the hotel so one can have a ride to the Krimml Wasserfälle on the spot. The hotel offers a spa area in the basement of a second building opposite the street.
The hotel is situated in Kaprun not far away from the car museum Vötter. The origins of the building are dating back to the 15th century so it is known as the oldest inn of Kaprun. The rooms are in rural style.
After I walked along the Iler valley, I had the chance to relax at the wellness area of the Hotel Ortnerhof. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the time to join a horseback ride which is a special offer of this hotel. They even offer western-style riding.
After climbing up and down the hill of Dürnstein Castle I was ready for this relaxing room at Hotel & Winery Pfeffel. The room even offered a view of Dürnstein Castle so I was able to put down these notes while looking at the castle ruins.
The palace placed next to a lake named Wörthersee was built at the end of the 16th century by Bartholomäus Khevenhüller. Since 1890 it has mainly been used as a hotel. In the 1990s it became famous for being the set of the German TV series ‘Ein Schloss am Wörthersee‘, aka ‘Lakeside Hotel’.
In February 2008 I visited a restaurant next to Matzen Castle (Burg Matzen) and took this photo. The name Matzen goes back to a Roman military station called ‘Masciacum’. Today there is a fine Schlosshotel (castle hotel) inside. [German]
