Telephone: (43) 662623248.
Getting there: A 20-minute walk along the river or a No. 7 bus from the centre.

The perfect base for exploring the beautiful lake district outside Salzburg. A lovely town on the edge of Fuschlsee, it offers a variety of hikes from the leisurely stroll around the lake to long taxing routes toward San Gilgen. Fuschl has several hotels, a well-run camp site, and Edenbergers restaurant.
Getting there: Bus No. 150 runs every hour from Salzburg bus station.

Really lovely hotel five minutes' walk through pretty streets to the historic centre of Salzburg. The owner, Peter Kuhn, is really helpful and will give you plenty of advice about things to do and where to go. He also provides free bikes which you can borrow and ride all around Salzburg, which is very cycle-friendly. The rooms are large, with ensuite bathrooms and nice views, it's on a quiet residential street and has a great buffet breakfast. Very reasonably priced too.

My husband and stayed at the Gablerbrau in December 06 and we were delighted with the hotel. Rooms are simple but very comfortable, clean and relaxing after a tough day on the cobbles. We usually prefer to dine away from our hotel when on holidays but the Gablerbrau's restaurant is great - very popular with locals also. The bar is a great spot to watch people come and go.
The location is excellent also, situated over the bridge from the old town. The bathroom was spacious and very modern with a great big sink and a pull-out face mirror.
Overall great value (there was no mini-bar in the room but who would use a mini-bar with such great beer on tap downstairs? there is also a beer vending machine on each floor) and heartily recommended.
