Man kann viel unternehmen in der Umgebung, ein ideales Urlaubsquartier. Wir waren 6 Erwachsene und 5 Kleinkinder und jeder hat die gemeinsame Zeit genossen.

White water rafting, amazing gorges, going up the mountains to see glaciers and the beautiful clear, warm lake to swim in and do water boarding, not suitable for sailing due to being too sheltered from the wind. Wonderful, welcoming and helpful hosts. The property was clean, bright and very spacious. Would highly recommend property and area.

We are completely smitten with the surrounding area and still can't believe our luck at finding such a perfect family holiday. With children aged 12 and 4 we have struggled previously to find holidays to suit the wide age gap, but this ticked all the boxes and many, many more. So many wonderful activities to keep us all happy and engaged, from lake swimming to hiking to cable cars to boating, and dozens in between. We would highly recommend hiring a car because (a) many of the recommended activities are a distance away (we drove 600 miles in total) and (b) the area is just too beautiful to miss! However Bruck is very sweet with some lovely, quaint, authentically Austrian restaurants, so worth a visit to eat or stop for a coffee. Zell am See on the other hand is still very nice, with great lake-side views and activities, but a little too busy/ hectic for us. However, the area boasts so many other gems that we really didn't feel we needed to visit Zell am See more than once. As for the apartment, we could not fault anything about it...it was comfortable, very nicely furnished, well equipped, spotlessly clean and boasted a fabulous view from the balcony. And the hosts were incredibly welcoming and friendly and happy to assist with recommending activities, and when we had to extend our stay due to an unforseen flight problem, they went out of their way to help us and were extremely kind. To summarise, this is a lovely apartment and a great base for exploring what is a breath-takingly beautiful region of Austria, and we won't hesitate to return.
