If you in the area (it's near Salzburg, Austria) take an overnight stay and visit this beautiful old quaint and very picturesque town on a lake surrounded by mountains.
In my opinion by car is best if you can,
People are nice, price including hotels are reasonable given that it's a tourist area.
We stayed across the lake at HOTEL AH SEE with a view of the lake- AWESOME.
Luckily for the invention of the digital camera as we took hundreds of pictures.
Lot's of walking but the town is not too big.
Enough said- just check out other reviews, look it up on YOUTUBE and you'll be hooked,
