...My next stop after Rothenburg was the small village of Walchsee in the Austrian Tirol. A picturesque little town located on a beautiful glacial lake, surrounded by green valleys and mountains. My accommodations were at the Bauernhof "Welzenhof", and I really lucked out on this one. Located about 3 km outside of town, surrounded by gently rolling hills, it is indeed a winner. I had a large Doppelzimmer with pine paneling, shower/toilet and a large balcony which overlooks a full size golf course nearby. Frau Greiderer speaks perfect English and is an excellent host. Ideal location for day tripping. Reit im Winkl is just 10km, and Kitzbühel 30km. There is also an excellent Sommerrodelbahn about 5km from the farm. I made sure to pay them all a visit.
