There’s no wonder that Salzburg was a city to remember. The charming attractions and green sceneries wouldn’t allow me to leave this relaxing yet busy city.
The 4 days spent in Salzburg were magical.
Since I wanted a relaxing vacation, I chose Hotel Holzernwirt in Eugendorf, 34 minutes away from Salzburg old town.
Holznerwirt Hotel was exactly the spirit of the typical Austrian hotel with the authentic touch.
We took the apartment room with the large bed and sofa bed. The service and the people were very friendly. We enjoyed our mornings with their delicious breakfast in their cozy restaurant.
You can also benefit from their sauna, spa and the small outdoor pool for ultimate relaxation.
There’s also a lot of activities to do in Eugendrof - check their website
