A very beautiful and scenic drive coming from Italy, leave the Brenner at Achensee. You are rewarded with the most spectacular panoramas of mountains, lakes and below lying villages!! The Post Hotel Achenkirch visit was a Pistop and gee what a pit-stop. Vettel could not wish for more!!. We parked the car across the street (below the hotel) on the church grounds. The charming waiter (Maxim) informed us that dining on the Terrace was reserved for hotel guests only. He joked about how busy the terrace was and gallantly (Austrian Charm) took us to a table, promptly our glasses of champagne appeared. A bit too chilly for this time of the year, the external heating was on and soft blankets readily available. The magnificent alpine air instilled huge appetite and we were excited about our order of flank of veal steak and grilled Samlet. It did not disappoint!! Hmmmm....pity we had to skip the wine as we still had some driving to do to our destination in Germany. However, I had a "teaspoon"of Grappa Paola Berta, at €22.00, the finest Grappa after an opulent dinner. Maxim did well in enticing us into having the chocolate bomb (-chen) tiny, accompanied by local berries and homemade ice cream...hmmmmmm, is all I can say. Girls.....get over there.
Armed with the hotel Brochures etc, we left happy, contented, spoiled and with an aftertaste for more, we booked there for next September.
