Week 101: Cuddling Hotel Seewirt at Lake Mattsee

We went directly from the ABC Star Conference in the evening through pouring rain to the Cuddling Hotel Seewirt at lake Mattsee. We have been here before several times and it is always nice. At any season. This time it was all about new hotel photos, because there are wonderful new suites. Nice and big. With a bath tub in front of the window with lake view. Or even with own sauna and a wooden tub outside. We had to put a spotlight on these new rooms. At sunrise or late in the evening with the fireplace. That was a lot of work. Like always we struggled with the bedclothes and the curtains. Classic. But – like always – it was worth the effort. In between we walke around Mattsee and took some spring impressions. Weather was again pur April. From early summer temperatures to some centimeters of snow we

Week 98: Salzburg Land

From the Vinocamp we went directly to Salzburg Land. But with one stop over. Our very first night in our car: Matilda. We got a very good tipp for a restaurant along the highway A 8 and looked out for a nice place to stay overnight and to sleep. But it was very very cold that night. And we should have tried our park heating before. Anyway. Now we know more. The next day I was ill, though. In the afternoon we had a very interesting meeting with potential business partners and afterwards we went to the hotel and I went straight away into the bed and stayed there for a whole week. Achim also got ill so that this week was a compulsory break for us. All the things that we had planned for that week had to be cancelled and out to do list got longer. At the

Week 74 – 76: Großarl

After our pitstop we went to Großarl. We have been here one year ago. Again we lived at the Hotel Kristall – or rather in their new holiday apartments at the Alpenpark and in the hotel Tauernhof. As both have made changes and renovations new photos were needed and we nearly only did that. The Tauernhof is family run and has 100 rooms. Additionally there is a huge restaurant and an ample spa. That’s a lot to do if you want to take pictures of all of that. And don’t forget the holiday flats. Those vary in size and partition. In the biggest one 8 people can stay. With two bathrooms and several sleeping rooms there are immediately a number of photo motives. HDR-Meurer wouldn’t be the HDR-Meurer if he would not take HDR-photos. This technique though is more time consuming than normal photography so that each picture requires more

Week 61: Mattsee in the Summer

So we are again in and at Mattsee. (Our report from Mattsee in March you can read here) We arrived at beautiful sunshine and on the lake there was a lot of activity. Boats, surfers, SUPs, swimmer… Everybody was in and on the water. Right next morning we talked about the photo motives and were really lucky to find two wonderful models, which dedicated one whole day of their vacation to a photo shooting. We went once through the complete hotel. From the rooftop to the spa, on the balcony, at lunch, at a pick nick on a paddle boat, at dinner and finally around sunset in the pool. The whole day we took pictures. But the results are not to bad, aren’t they? We visited the museum of the monastery and admired the treasures that the church collected over the centuries. At the cafe in the castle we had some

Waltzing Week 37: Country Hotel Kirchenwirt at Saalachtal

Our 37th week of waltzing we spent at the Kirchenwirt in Unken. We have been here already for two weeks when we were the to explore the Saalach valley. But this time it was all about the hotel itself. Contrary to the Lungau in Unken it looked more like spring. There was so much green to be seen. But we had only eyes for the house: We documented the breakfast in different variations. In the summer time it is arranged a little bit different than in winter times because then you can sit outside at the terrace. On the photo shooting list was also the cosy ‘Stüberl’. It was duffed a little bit for that. The spa was the next subject. Sauna, entrance, relaxation room with a wall made out of salt and a infrared cabin hat to be planned, discussed and of course to be photographed. Culinary arts were

Week 38: Cuddly Hotel Seewirt at Mattsee

This week we were again booked by a hotel: The romantic cuddly hotel Seewirt at Mattsee. We knew the hotel from earlier stays and jobs. The special thing about it: It is children free. Everything is aimed for couples to feel relaxed and romantic. At the agenda were a lot of small details and the surrounding of the hotel. So we did some photo shootings from different staff members: From the spa, kitchen, service, reception and so on. All caught during their work. But we also took pictures from the surrounding. What can be found near the hotel – in case you want to leave the hotel at all. After all it is called a cuddly hotel… And we took a walk around the lake and really did the 13 km around that it takes to walk around whole lake. This time the lake has still been in hibernation. That means

Holiday Apartment Mosergut at Lungau

We have been given to the holiday apartment Mosergut at Lungau. It was the first time for us that we have been a present. How does it work when the client is far away and the beneficiary does not know anything about us? Do they want us at all? How will they receive us? The secret about the present has been revealed some time before our arrival, so that we stood not completely unheralded in front of the door. And some information about us have also been forwarded. Because our job were just the three totally new holiday flats it was a quite relaxing week. Our outdoor activities have been limited somehow by the weather, but it was still interesting. Right after our arrival – even before we got our luggage out of the car – we did the photo shooting of the apartment where we stayed in. If we would have

Waltzing Week 35: Altenmarkt-Zauchensee

Week 35 of Waltzing we spent for Salzburger Land at the region Altenmarkt-Zauchensee. We stayed at the Hotel Barbarahof. A hotel right in the centre of Altenmarkt. For lunch and dinner we went to different huts or restaurants. As we arrived late in the afternoon after 5 hours of driving, we did not see much of the village on our arrival. Monday we had a first meeting with the tourism board and after that explored a little bit the surrounding to search for possible photo motifs. Tuesday we met the Flying Coach. That is a very nice idea. The Flying Coach is a Cross Country Skiing Teacher who gives a 30minute lesson in skiing and after that spends two hours on the slopes to give skiers tipps and hints. A really nice idea. We saw during the last weeks a lot of skiers who looked not very happy and might

Gasteiner Valley in Winter

This week we spent at Gasteiner Valley. A new region for us. And also new: with snow! We stayed at the Johannesbad Hotel Palace in Bad Hofgastein, which is a former health resort but still has a therapy department and a brine room. The brine room was perfect for us because we both had caught a cold… When there is snow we must take snow photos… Therefore we walked to the Waldgasthof. It is not far away from the slopes and you even have to walk a bit over the slopes. You have to be careful not to be overrun. At the Waldgasthof culinary arts was the topic. We could shoot some yummy stuff and eat it afterwards. A specialty was a menu which has been created by a star cook especially for this hut. It is called ski chef caps. Such an excellent cooking was a nice difference to the normally

Saalach Valley in Winter

We already have been during autumn at the wonderful Saalach Valley at Salzburgland. And now we were for the second time here in winter. We stayed at Hotel Mühlpointhof in Lofer in a huge apartment. Here in the valley everything got nice white powder on it. Thematically we stayed with old traditions. We visited another Perchten Run in Salzburgland. The third in our life. The two others did not really convince us. This time it was a bigger run: The Pongau Perchten Run – in Bischofshofen. Here there were more ‘beautiful Perchten’ than ‘ugly Perchten’. Unfortunately there was no moderation with explanations this time. For quite a lot of figures and costumes we would have loved to have more information about what they represent. So if you happen to know more please let us know via comment. It was striking that only men were involved and that there were partly very
