Austrian Lakes Anniversary Special With The Ogdens
We could hardly believe it when we realised we have been visiting the wonderful Tirolerhof Hotel in St. Georgen, Austria for 30 years .. Continuously, and we couldn't let this special Anniversary go by without a celebration, you all know how much we love a good celebration!! Gunter & Ingrid are still running this lovely hotel that many of you will have visited over the past 30 years, and if you haven't why not?
It is easy to see why this holiday has been so popular over the years, as the location gives us the opportunity to visit some of Austria's most stunning scenery. Dramatic mountains, pine forests, lush green hills and the sparkling crystal clear waters of the beautiful Lake District, Mozart's musical City of Salzburg which also played backdrop to the Sound of Music. All of this will be explored on this Anniversary Special - and we've also thrown in something new for you to enjoy.
