Dienten im Hochkönig, Salzburger Land

 
A great getaway in the Austrain mountains offers the cute and beautiful flower-pot-covered village Dienten im Hochkönig....Not too far from Salzburg (73 km) this cozy place at 1500m altitude is worth visiting not only in the winter but also in summer!

Next to relaxed hikes and wild flowers and herbs, one may also do some local-schnaps-tasting or just enjoy mountain air, good food and amazing landscapes. I stayed twice at the family hotel "Mitterwirt" and can only recomment it further: great place with first class hospitality, delicious food and wine as well as great spa...
