It is a little over one hour from Salzburg Mozart Airport to Saalbach by car. There are many transportation options from Salzburg: bus available directly from the airport; train to Zell am See and then Post Bus to Saalbach; taxi, or private cars.
There’s something very comfortable heading back to a wonderful and familiar hotel like friendly Hotel Gappmaier which is family owned and run, has wonderful food, stupendous mountain views, and perfect location; three minute walk to a gondola.
After a fantastic Winter stay in 2012 to snowshoe the mountains around Saalbach-Hinterglemm, we just had to return. Do I really need to say that neither of us lost one ounce eating huge buffet breakfasts and equally big dinners? And most Americans probably don’t realize that all this munificence can be had in summer Austria for $150 a day for two people, including meals! You’ve got to love Hotel Gappmaier…
