What a perfect week in & around Kaprun staying at the Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten (Four seasons).
The weather in September was perfect - warm clear sunny days, coolish nights and absolutely no wind at all. They say that the weather in Kaprun in this part of the Alps in September is generally very stable.
The hotel is on the fringe of the town centre near the Kaprun Castle and is located close to major sites eg the Kitzsteinhorn (@ 3000 metres - I went up 4 times - amazing hikes in area incl the Alexander Enzinger walk .. 6 hours + back down to Kaprun along mountain ridges) , the Grossglockner Road reputed to be in the top 10 best drives in the world ( - I spent 10 hours driving this amazing road and soaking up the amazing scenery), sister town Zell am see a short drive away and if you want a change from Nature (which is hard to drag yourself away from) and want a bit of Culture, Salsburg is only an easy 90 km away.
Kaprun itself is a great little town which would be buzzing in the ski season. It has everything on offer except (I assume) the busloads of tourists or the "white-shoe" brigade.
The hotel is family run and the staff and owners were warm and friendly and very helpful at all times. My 7 nights 3/4 board stay in a junior suite was very good value at this time of the year.
I cherished the heated indoor pool and the saunas every afternoon about 5pm after I dragged myself down from my adventures in the Alps (& after that Grossglockner drive) before going to the hotel dining room to enjoy my 4 course dinner with a cool beer and wine and share stories of our day with other guests.
My wife and I are planning to go back next September again and possibly even later this year to experience a white Christmas in Kaprun and at the Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten.
