A Mountain Lodge with Views! | Lodge Krippenstein
Hallstatt, Austria is a popular place in Austria to visit. The lake and village surrounded by the Austrian alps is truly an incredible setting! Tourists come from all over the world to see the beautiful town and ride the gondola up the surrounding mountains. The Krippenstein mountain is in the town of Obertraun and overlooks the beautiful lakeside towns below. We stayed in a beautiful lodge on to of Mount Krippenstein. This lodge offers the most beautiful mountain views that we have ever seen and we aren't just saying that! Staying in the lodge truly felt like a unique and special experience. The lodge is the only hotel at the top of the mountain, so at night when the lift stops running then the only people at the top are those staying in the lodge. You feel like you're on your own private mountain!
On mountain Krippenstein there are several hiking trails as well as Via Ferrata routes. Mike had the opportunity to do some Via Ferrata one morning and he had an incredible time! We also hiked to the Five Fingers platform at sunset and viewed one of the most beautiful sunsets we've ever seen. What an amazing location! The hike was easy and the views were spectacular.
We can't say enough about our experience staying at the lodge. The food was incredible and the staff were friendly. We got to know the owners and hear about the building of the lodge and their story. They were so nice and it was really fun for us to get to know their them! They hope for the lodge to welcome visitors from around the world who are looking for a unique experience. We hope that we can visit again in the winter when we can do some skiing! We will be back for sure!
