Interaction with Guests
We love to interact with our guests and tell them all about what our area has to offer. We also love to learn about the lives of our guests. However, we appreciate that other guests would prefer less interaction and we totally respect this.
Guests will love the pure nature of our surroundings - whatever the season or weather.
The whole area is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
In summer we recommend that guests visit Hallstatt - not just the village itself, but also the Salt Mines and the highly interesting museum where you will learn the 7,000 year history of the town.
Here in Obertraun, we have the Dachstein caves and Hiking World and recommend guests visit the Giant Ice Cave and the 5-fingers.
In winter Landhaus Osborne is the perfect base for exploring this area of outstanding natural beauty characterised by the Dachstein mountain range. The region provides a real adventure for downhill and cross country skiers and snowboarders of all abilities.
In total, our local ski areas offer well over 200 kms of perfectly groomed snow-sure pistes which are suitable for all abilities - from young learners right up to expert freeriders. Resorts such as Krippenstein Freeride Arena, Dachstein West, Loser, Tauplitz and many more are either in our village or a short drive away.
For those who prefer to take things more easy there is snow shoe hiking, horse-drawn sleigh rides etc. Obertraun has plenty to offer.
For guests traveling by car, we have free parking in our car port and courtyard.
If arriving by puclic transport, please refer to the ÖBB website where you can plan you bus/rail travel.
Just treat our apartments like you would your own and respect other guests.
We kindly remind our guests that they are booking a self-catering apartment and not a hotel room. Therefore, you are kindly asked to leave it as clean as possible. Whilst we do not expect you to clean the apartment thoroughly we expect that you at least bring all rubbish out to the bins in front of the building and wash and dry all used kitchen utensils and cutlery. Please also do not put any wet kitchen utensils into the cupboards or leave wet towels on the floor or furniture.
If you wish us to do this cleaning for you, then we are happy to do so and will simply add a €30 cleaning fee to you final bill.
It is not allowed to do any laundry in our apartments. However we provide a laundry service so just ask and we will provide you with a laundry bag. The price for this service is only €10 per load for both washing and drying.
Pets are not allowed.
Smoking in the apartments is strictly forbidden. However, please feel free to smoke on the balconies or outside and use the ashtrays provided. When smoking outside all we ask is that you close the balcony door behind you to stop smoke blowing back into the apartment.
My wife and I are from England and Germany. We both had good careers in IT, but decided there was more to life, so moved to Austria where we can ski winter, hike, bike and swim in Spring, Summer and Autumn. We have never looked back and enjoy welcoming people from around the world to our home.
