It's an early night in...I've already had a Skype date with my mother and downloaded my pictures before even starting to type up today's entry! Excited to get some extra sleep tonight as I have totally hit the point of exhaustion. It was a great day though, LOTS of good stuff to see :)
The day started at the Mozart …
I have moved on, from the beauties of Germany, I'm now in what I have to hope heaven will look like. Welcome to the alps! Though the Rockies are gorgeous and I can't get enough of them, they don't quite compare to the Alps. In grandeur, yes; in beauty, mostly (minus the amazing beautiful green in the alps, not always so present …
Highs lows and everything in between. Life in mainland Europe is a blur. Every city has the same high speed rush of Los Angeles, the same smells, the same surly people. Yet there is a strong presence of history around every corner. The weight of time hangs heavy over you. Each building has a plack with a date of construction or renovation on it. You step into a modern cafe and realize that the building has been standing since 1580. It has stood through harsh ...
I've been waiting for this day since we booked the trip, the tour of eagles nest. We woke to a mostly sunny day with a few clouds, so that was a good start. It was as good as I expected and all really enjoyed the tour. We took the lift up to eagles nest and crammed in like sardines. We were lucky, mostly sun with a few clouds but a bit chilly being so high up. The views were ...
... sound of music tour, and both really disappointed, as only got out of a couple of places and rest was drive by. Ron and bill went on a lakes tour and loved it and now Ron wants to come back and have his holidays at St Wolfgang. The days weather was patchy with rain and cloudy. Another good day in ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Berglandhotel Salzburg
We stayed at the hotel for two nights in June, 2004. It was clean and well-kept. The breakfast room and breakfast were a great way to start the day. The walk to town is not too far, about 10 or 15 minutes. Everything in Salzburg is within walking distance. A great place for the price!
Attention to detail, wonder location, great value!
The Bergland is an exceptional value in Salzburg. I first stayed there more than 15 years ago and am pleased to report that the Kuhn family business is thriving. The rooms and bathrooms have all been updated/renovated and the quality of everything in this pension is first rate. Peter Kuhn takes enormous care of his guests and inn. The main sitting room has a very comfortable, welcoming feel and the presence of art and furniture that Peter has created adds to the personal warmth of the atmosphere. My husband and I stayed at Bergland, with another couple, in March 2004 and there was a winter special of staying 3 nights for the price of 2. This made an already wonderful rate an extraordinary value. We used public transportation exclusively, and had no trouble getting anywhere we wanted to go from this location, even in cold, snowy weather. I highly recommend this hotel and look forward to staying there again whenever traveling to Salzburg.
My mother and I stayed here during the last week of April and were amazed by the hospitality of Peter Kuhn and his staff. The rooms were clean and spacious and the breakfast buffet delicious. Peter booked our Sound of Music Trip (a must!) and the Mozart Dinner Concert (not to be missed!) Nothing was too much trouble. It was our first visit to Salzburg and we were overwhelmed by the beauty and history of the city. The scent of the spring flowers and the glorious scenery just added to the whole experience (helped by extremely good weather!)
A wonderful accomodation and relaxed, personable atmosphere. Peter, the host, is fluent in many languages and is very helpful and accomodating to his guests. The sitting room has an informal, friendly atmosphere and several shelves of books available to guests.
A very do-able 10-15 min walk from the train station and about the same distance to the heart of the sights in Salzburg.
Peter kindly held my purchases for a week while I traveled to Innsbruck with a hiking group since I was staying again at Hotel Bergland upon my return to Salzburg after the hike.
Affordable and lovely.
Great place, geat value!
Stayed at the Pension Bergland in late March 2004 and was very pleased.
Everything was great. Our room was large, clean, comfortable and tastfully decorated. The staff is very hospitable and the inn quiet and relaxing.
My family and I stayed at this hotel for only one night this past December. We all enjoyed our stay. The room was very comfortable. The breakfast room and the bar were both pleasant. And it's within walking distance of the old town. We plan on staying there again in the future.
Thoroughly enjoyed my stay in September 2003. The host, Peter, is gracious, accommodating and very personable. He speaks English and German so can be very helpful to his guests. The accommodations were charming, clean and welcoming. With individual touches to each room, it avoids the sterile/generic feel some establishments have. There is a nice main room where guests can relax and take advantage of the library, computer, couches and hot/cold drink bar. The breakfast room is nice also. Hotel Bergland is located about 10 min walk from the central tourist area and also same distance from the train station; I walked to it with my rolling carry-on and had no problem whatsoever.They were also happy to hold onto one of my purchases for a 5-day period as I was elsewhere traveling town-to-town with a walking group. Returning back to Hotel Bergland at the end of the week, I checked in and found my items in my room awaiting my return. A most pleasant stay.
We stayed in Pension bergland in May'2003 for two nights.The rooms and service were good.The staff helpful.The Piano and Hats in the lobby bring fond memories back. We loved the Hotel for the peace,tranquility and ofcourse the owner,Peter Uhn.
Good, clean and well priced, but (surprisingly) be sure to bring your own soap and shampoo. It is a bit far from the old city by foot, but there is a beer garden and an Austrian resteraunt right in the neighborhood that are very good.
Travelling with a family of five and staying at 6 hotels in Europe, The Bergland Pension ranked near the top, mostly because it is efficiently and personally run by Mr. Kuhn. He was very informative and accomodating, even trying to save us money on various tour choices, and you see his interest in reading, music, and the internet by lounging in the sitting room of the hotel. The breakfasts were exceptional with a variety of healthy choices, the two rooms we required were spotless and spacious. The street was quite quiet, but a wonderful beer garden was a block away, and a fine shopping stree with bus service two blocks away.
The only recommendation is to learn the bus system or be up for the 15 walk to the river and across to the old town. A great spot!
