Advent in the Waldviertel Austria
Our tips for a short holiday in Advent in Waldviertel in Lower Austria At the Hotel Schwarz Alm Zwettl Austria we have one Trip in early December collected. We spent two days in and around Zwettl in the Waldviertel. We present you here what we discovered. A stay at the Hotel Schwarz Alm during Advent is particularly nice. Then the hotel is decorated for Christmas. Open log fire ensures cosiness. While it's cold outside, you can relax in the spa.
Our tips for the Hotel Schwarz Alm in Advent
The Hotel Schwarz Alm is an elegant four-star hotel with an intimate spa, which we like very much. The hotel is located a few kilometers outside of Zwettl in the Waldviertel. You can reach the hotel via a narrow tarred road that leads through a wooded area to a large meadow in the middle of the forest. During our visit forest and road were already frozen. The driveway was still easy to handle. Especially nice is that the hotel offers the perfect break from everyday life due to its secluded location. After street noise one listens in vain. Instead, there is a wonderful silence. If you want, you can relax here for a few days. Advent in the Waldviertel you will experience in the Hotel Schwarz Alm very relaxed.
The spa is ideal for this, with its pool, relaxation rooms, saunas, steam and brine bath, which are the perfect facilities. It's great to look out from the saunas through the large window panes at the frost-covered grass and the frozen pool. Brave sauna-goers can cool off in it, even in winter. However, we use the spa for the opposite: during the day go on a discovery tour in the area, the spa serves us in the evening as a place where we warm up again from the winter cold. It is wonderful to lie in one of the relaxation rooms and watch the winter outside in the warmth.

End the day with a dinner at the Hotel Schwarz Alm Zwettl Austria
Anyway, we would like to return to the Hotel Schwarz Alm every evening after our excursions. There is a romantic dinner by the fireplace on Saturday evening. On Sunday and Monday we eat in the cozy dining room of the hotel. We enjoy the friendly service in the restaurant and let us taste the great dishes from the hotel kitchen. Here is a master at work: the greeting from the kitchen, the soup, the main course and the dessert are delicious every night.
And above all: the food is exciting. It does not matter if it's the chestnut pear soup, the fillet from the Austrian fattening ox and the orange parfait with Grand Marnier from the first evening, the beef carpaccio, the frittate soup, the calf's liver and the poppy dumplings from the second evening or the wild boar ham, the creamy cream soup , the entrecôte and the strawberry parfait from the third evening - everything tastes great. So we enjoy our stay at the Hotel Schwarz Alm in Advent even in the evenings.
