... the Palaces. Hofburg and the Schonbrunn. Both are amazing. Of course they are!! But From everything I've ever heard, most of these people weren't very happy. It's the age-old adage; money doesn't buy happiness. I hope you'll enjoy seeing the pictures though. Relaxing tonight and packing for our next chapter where Steve will meet sone of his Slovakian relatives. I'm so excited for him. (Me too). Not sure what our wifi situation will be, so till then . . .

Then we got dressed for our BIG. NIGHT!!!!!
We had a lovely dinner very nearby called Panorama and then traveled back into the City where we had dessert and "kaffee" before entering The Musikverein - Goldener Saal "Golden Hall".
There's no way the pictures do it justice!!!! We may have been in the very last row of the balcony, but there's no way to call it a "peanut ...
We went to Lake Konnigsee today for a boat ride on this beautiful lake that is 8km long 11/4 kn wide and 602m above sea level. Steep cliffs on both sides. Made stops at St. Bartholoma and Salet. We walked to Lake Obersee. Saw 3 waterfalls...Konigsbach Fall, Schrainbach Fall and Rothbach Fall.
We walked to the Hofbraehaus and had a delicious hot potato ...
We took the train 4 hours to Berchtesgaden. I twisted my ankle before we left Regensburg and it swelled up, but not much pain. Iced it this evening and all seems to be ok. Arrived in Berchtesgaden about 1:30 and walked to the hotel which was very close to the train station. We had a delicious pumpkin soup at a local restaurant. We took free bus up to the center of town and walked around. Had pizza and spaghetti for supper. Bed early ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Goldener Hirsch Salzburg
My wife and I recently travelled to Salzburg and satyed at the Goldener Hirsch from September 13th to the 19th, 2004. It is a very lovely and quaint hotel. The location is perfect; right in the old district which is near most of the shops, restaurants and historical sites. We looked at staying at the Hotel Sacher, but it's on the other side of the river. Yes it has a lovely view of the city and is right on the river on one side, but on the other side (where you arrive) is a 4 lane street about as busy as Broadway. It looks quite nice inside, but keep in mind it's a Big hotel. That's the beauty of the Goldener Hirsch; it's everything the Hotel Sacher isn't. Reading one of the negative reviews, I really don't understand what the person was talking about. We had breakfast once at the hotel, knew up front it Wasn't included, and the price for everything was on the menu. The satff were helpful and knowledgable. I would definitely return!
Im a seasoned traveller.. I write many reviews for all to see and maybe learn from on this site. And I dont really know what to say about this place.. its neither good nor bad, very much like the town it lives in. My bedroom was very good, maybe I was upgraded because of my Starwood membership. The place has charm the restaurant is bland and too twee even for Austria. Its not a grand hotel in the true sense of the word, but it charges like one. Breakfast was a big dissapointment 30 euros for 5 euro food, and very surley service. I arrived in my Aston Martin and the bellhop took it away to a private garage, just as well because there is nowhere to park. 40 euros a day.. very steep considering the rest of the rates I had been charged during my motoring tour of Europe. Well thats about all there is to say, if you must stay in Salzberg its not a bad choice, but like some other reviewers you mihjt be dissappointed
Wonderful and Quaint
Small, quaint, and most charming hotel. In the heart of all the action. We had no problems with the concierge. They were always very helpful. Breakfast is not included and is pricey but there are PLENTY of place to eat nearby. I recommend you have a drink at the SteinTerrace--it's a nearby roof top hotel bar which has the most fantastic views (especially of the fortress). Also, as cheesy as it sounds, the "Sound of Music" tour was hysterical and fun.
The Goldener Hirsch doesn't live up to its high rating. Yes, it's a great location and the room was lovely, however:
Loved this quaint hotel
What a setting!!! The hills truly are alive with the sound of music. We stayed in a large tastefully decorated room away from the main hotel. Just what we were looking for. We have and would again recommend this hotel to friends.
OLD TIME CHARM
A very classy, very old, and utterly charming hotel. It reminded me of an old country inn with only a few floors of rooms; giant room keys; and exquisite dining. If, or rather when, I return to Salzburg, I will definitely stay at the Hotel Goldener Hirsch again...it's right in the heart of the "Alt Stadt".
A Perfect Little Slice of Salzburg
This hotel is the only place to stay in Salzburg! Perfectly located amongst the shopping streets and market squares of this beautiful city. The rooms are comfortable and finished in lovely detail. The hotel's restaurant serves very high quality food and the bar and breakfast areas are really nice. Yet most impressive are the staff at the Goldener Hirsch. They could not have been more helpful and consistently friendly. In addition to helpful service they were only too willing to make restaurant and ticket bookings for us. We look forward to a return visit in the near future.
One of the very best
Everything about this hotel was wonderful, one of the finest places I've ever stayed. My room (free upgrade) was large, comfortable and beautiful, with every amenity, and the service was impeccable. The staff was gracious, courteous, helpful and very professional. Breakfast buffet was pricey, but worth it, a veritable feast with any request made to order. The location was perfect and best of all were the Mozart chocolates on the pillow every night! I loved the Goldener Hirsch.
Sound of Music
Simply the best in Salzburg. Staff, accommodations, food and service.
Old world charm with modern amenities.
The location could not have been better: right at Salzburg's old town high street, Getreidegasse. Being Starwood Preferred Guest Gold member, I received an upgraded to a suite, which was an alpine dream come true: small, but cozy living room, ancient (looking) rustic furnishings, very comfortable bed with patterned bed linen, two TV sets, lots of wardrobe space, ISDN modem port, in-room safe, minibar, a small bottle of red wine as a welcome gift, large bathroom with two wash basins, separate toilet and bidet, evening turn down with free mineral water and chocolate, overnight shoe shine - you name it. Room rate (141 EUR per night, low season) booked on starwood.com was more than OK. If you want to save your Euros and miss the very good breakfast, have it somewhere else, because it is very expensive (25 EUR). Two restaurants of which I preferred "s' Herzl", the more rustic and cheaper one, because it had more atmosphere to it. Great bar located in a former courtyard. Staff could not have been nicer. My most memorable stay yet.
