A lovely bright clean traditional (but newish) hotel perched right on top of the mountain it seemed! There is a long, steep and twisting drive up the side of the mountain, and more than once we wondered if we could possibly be on the right road, but then, we emerged above the tree line to find the hotel with the most awesome views back down into the valley. Spectacular. Large comfortable rooms with more of the beautiful bedding that you seem to get in hotels in this part of the world. The hotel wasn't too busy, but we had no intention of driving down 'that road' again to eat,so without any great expectations, we booked dinner in the restaurant.
I ordered the table d'hôte menu without paying much attention to the courses . . . . (I couldn't understand the language anyway!) To my absolute delight, I was served one of the best meals I'd had in a long time. Presentation was beautiful, really outstanding, and the dishes were all delicious . . . . . truly of a standard you would expect from a Michelin star restaurant! What a wonderful surprise, and I'd love to think that the two young chefs who'd prepared and served the meal, really appreciated how much we'd enjoyed it and how impressed were!
The mists fell during the night shrouding the road back down the mountain so that we were above the clouds at breakfast! Breakfast was good too, and then we were off down into the valley with another days motoring ahead of us. If you're ever in this part of the world, give Berggasthof Haidenberg a try. You won't be disappointed!
