Plus ca change…..

  The final signature is now on the contract, the deed is done, Gasthof Hochalmspitze will have new owners by this time next year.    Strange how something that started so quickly ended up taking so long.  When we decided that we had to start thinking about moving on, we had no idea that there […]

   Can’t believe it really, but we are well over halfway through our summer season already and there are only 9 weeks left until we close up and have our well earned 10 day break in sunny Croatia! Then it will be back for the closing down and sorting out session – this year quite […]

Autumn, Winter and Spring – time for some DIY! Free accommodation for volunteer helpers of course!

Things never stand still at the Gasthof! Already we are halfway through the summer season and starting to think about changes for next year.

Using a Helmcam or Dasboard camera in Austria – the up-to-date info!
