So where's the snow?

Murtalbahn holidays

What more could you want, lovely house,railway, river, castle in distance?

I get quite a lot of interest about our local railway, s0 I thought I must do a plug for our friends who have a beautiful holiday house right by the railway!  It’s just across the Mur from us and enjoys the most wonderfully sunny situation.  The railway runs beside it, no fences nothing, and as its only a local railway, you can plan your times to sit and wave at the train! They run steam excursions all through the summer too, this is on the Club 760 website in English!

View from the Veranda – that’s the local quiet pub/guesthouse ideal for a beer or a great meal!

It can sleep up to six, and has all the facilities you need.  It even has English satellite tv for those who want to catch up with home!  It’s ideally situated for anyone wanting a base to  look at the railways.  Its only 10km from Mauterndorf where the local steam railway, run by the ‘Club 760’ is based.  Or you can go south the where they have a small museum at Fojach.  To drive to Lokwelt near Salzburg is only an hour and a half away, as is the Salzburgerland Freilicht Museum (Open air, mainly farm buildings) which has its own small railway.  You could easily spend  a week here doing train stuff and sun bathing in front of the cottage.

Do have a look at the website;
