The lunch at Spielberghaus was a spur of the moment desicion. I felt like walking, the weather was nice, crisp bvut not too cold. I went walking - it's 2,5km from Saalbach village, nice up-hill walk the forest. Just perfect for gaining the appetite.
The place is nice, stays alone in the middle of the forest and mountains. Made of wood, inside it is simple but it feels very warm and welcoming.
I had a consomme with excellent cheese dumpling and after that apfelstrudel with vanilla souce. The menu is a selection of mostly tipical austrian dishes.
The prices are a bit high, but considering now in the winter they have to bring everything with the snow cat up here... Though in my opinion the drink's pricelist is really a bit exagerated.
They are well organized, in the summer they offer good service for bikers and now in the winter for a reasonable 8 euro they will bring you up with the snow cat and downhill you sledge on your own! The path is well cared for and it's illuminated in the evening.
