Leaving Wattens, we headed east on the A12 once again and got off at Zillertal
for Wurstl at a Gasthaus. The waitress there was very nice. She’d spent 4 months driving around the US and gave us a postcard from the Gasthaus. There, we picked up a brochure on crystal from Kisslinger in Rattenberg so we stayed on the 171, which parallels the A12 and stopped at Rattenburg, walked around in the rain and bought a vase. We decided to stay on the 171 and did so for a while but then got back on the A12 and crossed into Germany. Almost immediately, we got back off the A12 and crossed back into Austria. Then as we took 172 and 305, we went back into Germany, then Austria, then Germany through Berchesgaten, then back into Austria again! Three visits to Germany in one day! After a frustrating search in the rain for a place to stay, we finally ended up at he Hotel Gartenauer in Anif
bei Salzburg and had a delightful dinner at the hotel. I had pork in a gorgonzola cream sauce and Linda had pork in caraway sauce. Apfelstrudel was dessert for both of us. After dinner we walked around a bit, visiting the charming cemetery on the hill behind the hotel.
