While I was staying in Malta, I realised that over half of the year has passed. I have also realised that I hadn’t yet found the time to go on a holiday. Although I briefly moved to Malta during the Summer, I didn’t really consider it as a holiday. The reason being that I consider Malta and my German home in Offenburg as home. A holiday for me would be somewhere away from my two homes and among mountains. That is one of the reasons why my boyfriend and I decided to visit Grünau im Almtal. The other reason is that we have found an affordable hotel with the scenery that I was looking for. We had booked a half-board accommodation at the 3 star JUFA Hotel Grünau at Grünau im Almtal.
The hotel was remote from the village. Trees, mountains and also a river surrounded the JUFA Hotel Grünau. The ideal scenery for me together with peace and quiet to help me relax. The vegan options offered for breakfast and dinner were also a big plus. Dairy-free milk, vegan butter, fresh fruits, muesli and a selection of organic herbal teas were some of the vegan options offered for breakfast. Dinner had always a veg option.
There was this one time where we were one of the few guests staying for dinner at the hotel, so the chef decided to change the dinner to a la carte instead of a buffet. When the receptionist read out the options offered in the morning, there was no veg option. So I have asked what vegetarian or vegan options do they have. The reception told me that he will check with the chef. In the evening went we went down for dinner, I saw “Veganer Gemüsestrudel” in the menu. I appreciated that the chef didn’t stop at offering a vegetarian option but went further and offered a vegan option. This made my stay at the JUFA Hotel Grünau even more pleasant.
Since we stayed at least 3 nights at the hotel, we were entitled to a free Salzkammergut Erlebnis-Card which gives us some discounts at selected tourist places in Salzkammergut region.
A post about places to visit around Grünau im Almtal will follow next week.
