Salzkammergut Hotels

In the grand old days, the aristocratic families of the region would welcome paying guests at their charming castles. Today most of those castles have been, if you will, degentrified: they are now schools or very fine hotels. But you needn't stay in a castle to enjoy the Salzkammergut—there are also luxurious lakeside resorts, small country inns, even guesthouses without private baths; in some

places the Herr Wirt, his smiling wife, and his grown-up children will do everything to make you feel comfortable. Although our hotel reviews cover the best in every category, note that nearly every village, however small, also has a Gasthaus or village inn; the ubiquitous Hotel- or Gasthof zur Post is usually a solid choice. Many hotels offer half-board, with dinner in addition to buffet breakfast included in the price (although the most expensive hotels will often charge extra for breakfast). The half-board room rate is usually an extra €15–€30 per person. Occasionally quoted room rates for hotels already include half-board accommodations, though a "discounted" rate is usually offered if you prefer not to take the evening meal. Inquire when booking. Happily, these hotels do not put their breathtakingly beautiful natural surroundings on the bill.
