After walking the ice caves and getting later than we wanted we checked a few hotels out in Werfen. We had passed the Obauer earlier from the back and weren't really that impressed, so we checked out a few other hotels. All Full was the response, maybe try here, or here. At a last minute before heading out of town... More

Let me say immediately, that we take our Tripadvisor reviews VERY seriously. We are very fortunate because we travel more than the average person - nearly 400 nights spent in hotels during the last three years - with almost as many fine lunches and memorable dinners in some of the best (and a few of the worst - either because...

Having a 3-week commitment in Vienna my wife and I sought a weekend get-away and chose Werfen as a small, picturesque village in the Austrian Alps for our first night away. Reviews offered on TripAdvisor swayed us to select this hotel and we were not disappointed. Our train ride was reminiscent of our honeymoon over 30 years ago when we... More

We decided to stay in Werfen based on a travel guide enthusing about the Eisriesenwelt, the Hohenwerfen and the Obauer restaurant. The hotel and restaurant were a bit of a splurge for us but we thoroughly enjoyed the experience of sitting on our balcony, literally watching the cows come home, while the restaurant, just below our balcony, prepared for the...

Went there based on several great reviews, but even thghey didn't do the place justice. It was, simply, superb. No Michelin stars here, but surely it deserves al least one. The food was just perfect, and thre service almost as stellar. Wine service was especially nice because the recommendations were in the 50 Euro range, and that was unexpected. Wine... More

When you have finished your fantastic dinner, you can go up to your room, and have a good night in this hotel. And in the morning enjoying the superb breakfast they will serve you from local products. And you will be happy with all this experience! Even if the room is a bit pricey, even if the old rooms are... More

This place is too expensive if you are staying at the hotel. The rooms are small are poorly laid out- with few amenities. The service is great. The town was sleepy On that Saturday night- perhaps common in a saturday. The meal- well sosubjective to critique but it was a expensive so I'd expect greatness. The foil grad turine was... More

We eat here every year when we visit Salzburg, and it is always the food highlight of my trip. It is one of those meals where you ooh and ahhh after every bite. Without fail every course excites, and is not only visually appealing but tastes great. Service is very professional, well trained and friendly without being stiff. You simply... More

We had a memorable lunch at Obauer four years ago, so we scheduled a detour to stay overnight and have dinner on a recent trip to Salzburg. What a treat - champagne and amuse bouches in the garden to kick off the dinner, followed by a glorious multi-course menu with wine pairings in the charming dining room. Superb food beautifully...

From the minute we read about the Obauer we knew it would be an exceptional experience and it exceeded all our expectations. The accommodations are very modern set in old buildings on the main street of this 16th century village. Ask for a room facing the back looking out onto the mountains and gardens of the private homes. There is... More
