Please light the fire in the evening if you wish but be aware that it's dangerous to close the oven door until the flames die down, this is because the pressure can build up. Logs can be gathered from the wood shed in the garden.

The Salzburg Region

Salzburg is one of the most beautiful cities Austria has to offer. Birthplace of Mozart, with the renowned Festival of music and theatre during July and August and many other cultural events throughout the year. Between the attractions are the castle, Mozart's birthplace, the Baroque architecture, the museums, not forgetting chocolate-eating (Mozart's chocolate for instance).

It's also a good base for exploring the lovely countryside of the Salzburgerland which rises to the Hohe Tauern Alpine National Park and Austria's highest mountain, the Grossglockner. The resort towns Zell am See, Badgastein, Saalbach and Hinterglem are excellent winter sports destinations but also ideal for summer in the mountains, all being set in spectacular and beautiful scenery.

Zell am See

Chalet Peter is near the village of Bruck, 10 minutes from the centre of Zell am See. Bruck has numerous restaurants, supermarkets, a tourist information office and ski hire shop.

Chalet Peter is situated on the side of a beautiful valley with views of the Schmittenhohe, the main ski area of Zell am See. The Areitbahn cable car which takes you to the top of the mountain is only 10 minutes drive away and there is ample parking even in the height of the season right next to the lift. The Kitzsteinhorn glacier is accessed from nearby Kaprun and here you can ski all year round! Chalet Peter lies in the heart of the Europa Sportregion which includes the resorts of Saalbach, Hinterglemm and Leogang.

A pleasant walk from the house will take you to a special attraction not to be missed. The Kohlschnait sledge run provides 3 km of lit tobogganing, rubber ring sledging and an Apres Ski hut.

Zell am See is also a beautiful summer resort. The lake has a number of beaches and the water temperature reaches 22 c which is remarkable when you consider that it freezes over in the winter! One of the biggest attractions is the "Grossglockner high alpine road" which is visited by over 1 million guests each year.

Here you will find wonderful meadows with wild flowers and waterfalls. The Grossglockner is the highest mountain in Austria at 3798m. The whole area is paradise for mountain bikers and ramblers and bike rental is available in many locations. There is paragliding and white water rafting for the adventurous, as well as one of the finest golf courses in Austria.
