After we spent several days in Salzberg enjoying some sightseeing and recovering from jetlag, we were ready to get into the serious business of our Austrian trek. A taxi took us to the lovely village of Gosau and our B&B, Gästehaus Alpenblick. Our hostess, Sonja, spoke no English, but we were able to communicate with our broken German and lots of smiling and gesturing!
The B&B’s name, “Alpenblick”, translates to alpine or mountain view. I think it was aptly named!
We spent the afternoon investigating the village while stretching our legs on a 5 mile walk around the valley.
One of our favorite things about hiking is that it justifies our desire to occasionally indulge in delicious desserts; this night was no exception. We walked to Gästhof Brandwirt for dinner and had Salzberger Nockerl for dessert. Our waiter, Johannes, joined in the fun by adding a pink, paper pig’s head on a stick for decoration!
Back to the B&B, for tomorrow we begin!!
