We stopped to get gas and had a beautiful view of Lake Mondsee and the Alps towering above it. The gas station also had the nicest and cleanest bathroom I’ve ever seen. But it was cold and our final destination was calling out to us so we headed back on the road.
Driving to the mountains in Austria is gorgeous, the sun was setting and lighting the sky with brilliant colors of pink, purple and yellow.
After driving for about 7.5 hours (we took a lot of stops along the way) we finally got to Rottau. Rottau is a cute little Alpine village located in the Bavarian Alps. Cafe Koenig, our panzio, is located at the beginning of town and is built of a typical Alpine design. It’s very adorable from the outside. On the inside, the lodgings are similar to a bed and breakfast. There is one main entrance to the house and we got the whole 2nd floor to ourselves. I was very happy with the accommodations. The bed was nice and big with plenty of bed coverings so as not to get cold at night, the radiator worked well and with a small turn of the knob, had the room warm and cozy in no time.
We settled down for a moment, had a few drinks then went downstairs for dinner. The restaurant was really homey and comfortable. Since it was still the Christmas season, all the decorations were still up and made the whole atmosphere festive. Herre Schmidt was our host and welcomed us with glasses of champagne. He was a wonderful host and made sure we got everything we needed. He explained the menu and even brought out all of our food.
Because of the heavy meal and all the driving, we decided to call it a night and head upstairs to get some sleep.
