In Austria - Ehrwald

Drove from Fussen Germany, where the Neuschwanstein castle (Disney modeled his after this one) is located into Austria and Ehrwald, our first stop in Austria. Unbeknownst to me we ended up staying very near the mountain (Sonnenspietze) and setting I used in the heading of the All Things Austria.

Ehrwald is situated in a huge valley surrounded by high alps, which is shared with 2 other villages, Lermoos and Biberwier with ski areas surrounding the valley. This looks like a winters as well as a summer paradise. Hiking cannot get any better either.

Interesting thing about the food, Wienerschnitzel, goulash soup, fries and cordon bleau are on the menus everywhere, although very good and tasty, they are nor calories anemic. Looks like almost everything is fried and butter is not spared. I would guess that the meals are geared towards a winter type setting.

 And now saying goodbye from the Pension Tannenhof in Eherwald, Tirol, Austria.
