The Hills Are Alive…

We’re back near Salzburg, staying in the small village of Grödig,  just 10 miles from Salzburg. It’s quiet and quaint – away from the crowds of Salzburg.  But if you want to go into Salzburg, there is a bus stop nearby with frequent service that will have you in the heart of the city in about 20 minutes.

We’re staying in a traditional but modern Austrian style hotel called Hotel Sallerhoff. It is small, quaint, surrounded by gardens filled with flowers and sculpture. It’s a very comfortable hotel with gracious staff and an excellent self-serve espresso machine in the lobby. Our room had a seating area and small balcony overlooking the grounds.

A perfect last evening in Austria.
