Winterurlaub am Grundlsee

Actually we had planned on a little bit of sun on Mallorca, but my mom could not mind the kiddos this time so we settled for a family vacation at the Grundlsee in Styria. The view from our room was spectacular.

During the day we made trips into the surrounding area, for example to Bad Ischl, where we visited the famous K.u.K. Kaffee-Konditorei Zauner.

The famous Zaunerstollen has been my favorite sweet/dessert since childhood. So of course one of them had to come along for later enjoyment.

We also went to St. Wolfgang where we had lunch at the fabulous "Weisses Rössl" - the opera, musical and film from the 60s with Peter Alexander are still a "must-know" when you are in the area.

In the late afternoons, when heavy snow started to fall outside, it was time for the pool- and recreation area...

... followed by some nice dinner later on.

And the kiddos had fun too. Food was only served for them, of course.

Wavies to the sunny beaches of Mallorca - we will return later this year!
