As others have said it is in a very nice area with a good food store and bakery just down the road and the Italian restaurant is excellent with a lovely ambience. The apartment is cleaned to a high standard and is very comfortable. Good location for Salzburg, Berchtesgaden (Eagles Nest), Bavarian alps, lovely lakes, Munich etc easy by train or car. Thoroughly recommend.
