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.

"Excellent accomadation ,with stunning veiws!!"
This was our second visit to apartment Waltraud, for two weeks this time in what we think is an amazing location for the Ski Amade area. On our return we realised once more why we chose this apartment again , its lovely clean and spacious with all the amenities required and views that'll live in your mind forever. All this at a reasonable price and great communication with the owners. Wouldn't hesitate to return and highly recommend !!

"Beautiful apartment, ideally located, gorgeous views!"
Our holiday in Apartment Waltraud was above and beyond all expectations. The apartment is spacious (much larger than we expected, lots of storage space), very well equipped and in the most perfect location for a family skiing holiday. Ski rental and school is just down the road along with ski lifts to an excellent choice of slopes. There is plenty to do locally, with lots of places to eat and drink. The local shops have a great range of Austrian meats and cheeses so self catering is easy and delicious! A wonderful place for a holiday, we want to come back in the summer!

The apartment is small, but everything you need is in it. We stayed with 4 adults. You have a great view at the Rittisbergpiste. It´s situated very central, nearby the shops and pistes of the ski Amade and the Dachsteingletsjer. For the second time we had a great holiday.

"Lovely Comfortable Well Appointed Apartment in Excellent Location for Walking."
Booked this apartment for a 12 night adults walking holiday and were delighted with it. The views from the bedroom & the lounge are breathtaking and many of the walking trails are accessible directly outside the apartment. There is a large balcony to the front & side of the accomodation with excellent views of the mountains & the Dachstein glacier. There is a bar and a hotel restauarant nearby or if you prefer to cook for yourself some nights, as we did, the level of kitchen equipment available is superior to what you expect in a holiday rental. The nearest Spar supermarket in Ramsau Ort is a 20 minute stroll away via good walking paths, a few minutes by car or a short bus ride from the bus stop close by. Inside the apartment there are maps, tourist information and it was very useful having a fast reliable wireless internet connection that made planning our days out so much easier. Would definitely use again.

"Great location, great scenery, great for walking/jogging"
The ever changing scenery both at the front and back of the chalet is spectacular. This is an ideal location for walking and jogging. Very close to the Rittisberg -route 5 which is an 8 mile challenging trek and the chalet is on the path to Ort a gentle stroll through the meadows. From behind the chalet you can walk to the cable car at Dachstein albeit is somewhat uphill. The local pub, Tenne is well worth a visit or two and it is right next door. Plenty of day trips which are easy to get to from Ramsau, train to Salzburg, drive to Hallstatt and Bad Aussee. It was handy for us to have instructions and tips in english to get the best out of our stay. the WiFi is very good.

"A Beautiful location with loads to do for all the family all withing 5 mins walking."
We stayed at this apartment in August 2011. We are a family of 3 with one daughter, aged 7. We were slightly unsure of Austria as a destination for a summer holiday with a 7 year old but we are now total converts. The apartment is lovely, clean, well equipped, the beds are extremely comfortable, and it is spacious with areas for dying washing and storing stuff. The location of the apartment is fantastic. It is a 5 minute walk from Rittisberg where there is a lake, a 'beach' and various child and family friendly things to do in summer like the high ropes in the forest (a favourite with our daughter). My favourite was the skit lift to the top of Rittisberg, with lunch in the restaurant/pub, great views, followed by off-road scootering down the mountain! I would highly reccomend this apartment. Would suit people with kids and without. We hope to return next time in Winter for ski-ing.
