Where We Stayed

We stayed in a Junior Suite Auberg which was a spacious 40 square metres in size, and came with a small balcony and sitting space overlooking the Austrian mountains. The decor was contemporary modern, with blonde wood floors, simple ultra-modern furniture, shutters on the windows and a soft palette of natural colours spiced up with splashes of vibrancy, such as a bright green wall. Loves 

  • The hospitality, which was both friendly and professional.
  • Couples booked on a half-board rate can enjoy a buffet breakfast and dinner, which is convenient after a day of touring.
  • It’s affordable luxury in the Austrian countryside.

Insider Tips  

  • There is a bus which stops right outside the hotel, and which takes you directly to the heart of the city.
  • If you open your large windows at night, you will be subject to the smells of the farm - but it’s bearable.
