Two weeks ago Pit and I left Vienna for a little getaway. Three years ago I gave him a Jochen Schweizer coupon for Christmas (yes I know THREE YEARS AGO!) and it was definitely time to use it!
We decided to go to the Hüttendorf Maria Alm in Austria. It`s a little village build of small cabins and it was as idyllic as it sounds!
We got a beautiful hut for us alone. Included were an infrared cabin and a wood stove! Oh man, one day I want to have a wood stove in my house! I`m always feeling cold and a wood stove would be my favorite companion!
We had a little terrace too, which I imagine in summer is perfect for having a breakfast outside in the sun! Now in winter it was just too cold to sit outside!
We just spent one night in this cabin, so most of the day we spent in front of the wood stove, but we went for a little walk too and I got a Kaiserschmarrn, my favorite dish!
The second day, we drove to Salzburg, because it wasn`t far away and Pit has never been there before. Christmas time is always special in every city, but on weekends it can be very stressful! The streets, cafes and markets were filled with people and it was impossible to find a quite place…
Aside from that, we enjoyed our time in Salzburg. It`s a beautiful city!
I have some eating and drinking tips for you too! One of my favorite parts of discovering a city always is to find cute restaurants and cafes!
Starting with breakfast, we went to Café Glüxfall which I can highly recommend! Everybody gets a little sheet where you can tick off what you want to eat. It`s a fun idea and the food is amazing!
In the afternoon, you have to go to the Cafe Würfelzucker if you like apple strudels. All strudels are freshly made and delicious!!
In the evening, we went to a typical Austrian licensed house named Triangel. This is also a must when being in Salzburg, you have to eat Austrian food at least once!
Pit and I have been living in Vienna for three years now and we never went anywhere else in Austria. This has been the first time and I hope we are repeating it next year!
