Combine glorious Alpine panoramas with beautiful sun-kissed lakeshores, with a wide range of activities, and you have the perfect ingredients for a fun-filled family vacation!
You stay in the picturesque Austrian village of Strobl, on the eastern shore of Lake Wolfgang, and one of the prettiest spots in the region. During your time here, you can be as active, or not, as you choose, as we provide a wide selection of fully researched self-guided walking and cycling routes, maps and detailed route notes, typically at 1 boot and 1 bike level are included. To ensure total flexibility, we will give you a complimentary bike for your exclusive use throughout your stay. There's also an excellent local bus, ferry and cable car service (pay locally) linking the local lakes and villages.
A full range of water sports can also be booked and paid for locally, with instruction available for beginners. Alternatively, perhaps take a trip on one of the many lake cruisers (hopping on and off at leisure at the numerous jetty points) and soak up the views from the water. There's also a natural wide beach for sunbathing. Take time too to visit Mozart's magical city of Salzburg: stroll through the Mirabell Gardens, lunch in an atmospheric cobbled square, then take the funicular to Hohensalzburg Fortress for the most amazing city views.
You stay as guests of Frau Zopf and family at the **** Bergrose Hotel. Set just back from the river, and less than 5 minutes cycle from the lake, the attention to detail is second to none. All of the 32 spacious bedrooms are beautifully and individually decorated and the perfectly crafted wooden paneling, so typical of this region, extends right through the hotel. Chef Paul's creations rely heavily on fresh local produce, so expect to taste aromatic wild herbs and garlic straight from the hotel's gardens.
