A Taste of Luxury in the Heart of Austria

Our tour participants hiked into this mountain gem two days ago. They spent last evening in a cozy house among the high mountain passes, but tonight they’ve returned to the valley to relax at this four-star estate surrounded by the stunning walls of the Gosau Kamm Mountains.

This is one of our favorite accommodations. It features gourmet dining and a well-deserved taste of luxury in the heart of the Austrian Alps. Guests at this hotel feast on the utterly divine flavors of historic Austria, they toast to the good life in the exclusive wine cellar, and they enjoy every modern amenity during their stay. Local craftsmen tastefully appointed each room with careful attention given to every detail.

Tomorrow the Heart of Austria tour continues to Hallstatt, a majestic waypoint that many have named, “The most beautiful lakeside village in the whole of Europe, if not the world.”
