Superb location: Although a car is recommended, it is very possible to enjoy a holiday in Apartment Waltraud without a car in both summer and winter, as many of our visitors and we ourselves can confirm. Many attractions/activities are within easy walking distance - we are ideally situated for the many and varied delights of the Rittisberg mountain and are surrounded by restaurants and cafes.
A fabulous outdoor shop (Ski Willy) is close at hand and public transport is very good, with regular buses to Ramsau Ort and Ramsau Kulm, where a wide variety of excellent shops, including 2 supermarkets can be found (the new Spar supermarket in Ramsau Ort is particularly good - we walk down to it, then catch the bus back).
The regular bus service also goes to the Dachstein cable car and to Schladming which has excellent shops and a train station offering a direct connection to Salzburg and the airport. Taxis are also easily available and reasonably priced.
