Wiener Schnitzel in the Woods

My final full day in Austria was spent with Lisi’s family, who meet up each Christmas. We travelled across the city and out towards a nearby village, via this fetching building – apparently the longest residential building in Europe at over 1km long. You can read more about Karl Marx-Hof here.

We eventually arrived at Der Waldhof in Maria Gugging, which oozed character from the very beginning. Could it look any cuter?

Even the taxidermy was feeling the festive spirit.

And what else would you eat in an Austrian cabin in the woods? Wiener schnitzel and apple and potato salad of course!

The decorations were simple and effective, and the bid windows let in plenty of light and a view of the surrounding trees.

Even the signs on the toilet doors were very cute.

The food was good, and some of us headed out for a little walk afterwards to blow away the cobwebs. Coming out into the snow was a big shock to the system after the cosy woodburner in the restaurant.

On our walk we went through an outdoor church, Lourdesgrotte.

After our walk, we all went back to a family home for tea and cake, before heading home for the evening and packing!
