We where not disappointed. The house and our appartment was very well maintained, and had everything we needed to feel at home. The location was perfect for our planned hikes in the area. For familys with young children we reccomend a walk through the Rauriser Urwald, the Hochhalmbahn gondola, a walk to the gold panning place only 6 km.away, for this trip our kids borrowed bikes at the Goldgrube. A trip to Krumltal and Tal der Geier is also highly recommended. We even got to se marmots on our way up and the voltures flying over the mountains. For the tough ones, you can go Paragliding in Zell am See. We had a wonderful barbeque evening with our hosts and the other guests at the Goldgrube by the stream, delicious food! Every morning we had fresh rolls delivered at our door for breakfast. After long days hiking in the mountains and sightseeing it was wonderful to come «home» and relax and just enjoy our wiew from every window and our balcony. Only hearing the stream and birds singing. Our dog probably had the best vacation ever! We went home to Norway full of energy and great memories.
