Because we wanted more than just a few hours to explore the quaint alpine village of Hallstatt, Austria, we booked an overnight stay at Hotel Grüner Baum.
Nestled between peaceful Hallstätter See (Lake Hallstatt) and the village center, Hotel Grüner Baum is the perfect accommodation for exploring Hallstatt and its beautiful surroundings!
The hotel has a variety of room types to meet your needs, offering 26 double rooms (some with balconies with a view of either the lake or the village square), 3 suites with large lake-facing terraces, and 1 single room.
The interior of the hotel is decorated with elegant accents…
… and the rooms themselves are nothing short of exquisite!
We booked a double room with a view of the church.
Looking out our window, in one direction we saw the church and part of the village…
… and in the other direction, we had a marvelous view of the fjord-like scenery surrounding the lake.
This view also made for one of the most romantic dinners we have ever had!
We reserved a table on the Lake Terrace (SeeTerrassee) where we sipped Austrian wine and local beer, and enjoyed a meal blending together local and Mediterranean specialties.
The following morning, we devoured a lavish breakfast (included in the room rate) in the Salzbaron restaurant, located in the hotel.
Although the room cost more than we typically spend on a night of accommodation, we felt that it was worth the splurge! The location, the views, the luxury… it was a wonderful complement to our memorable time in Hallstatt.
