About the property

Well equipped, one bedroom, comfortable apartment - sleeps 2-4

Apartment Waltraud is situated on the second floor of Haus Karlwirt. The accommodation comprises a light, airy living room with a double sofa bed, a comfortable armchair, TV with satellite, bookcase, cupboard, dining table with four chairs and a well equipped kitchen area. A separate bedroom has a comfortable double Austrian style bed, wardrobe and two bedside tables. There is a shower room with a wash basin, and a separate toilet. There is plenty of storage space, with an additional large wardrobe in the entrance hall, a four drawer chest of drawers and a large wet/drying room. There are attractive pictures on the walls throughout the apartment. Free WiFi is provided. An extensive, sunny, south west facing balcony offers magnificent mountain views which can also be enjoyed from the living room and bedroom. The apartment is well insulated and has oil central heating.

Free Summer Cards and a secure parking space are provided.

Superb location: Although a car is recommended, it is very possible to enjoy a holiday in Apartment Waltraud without a car in both summer and winter, as many of our visitors and we ourselves can confirm. Many attractions/activities are within easy walking distance - we are ideally situated for the many and varied delights of the Rittisberg mountain and are surrounded by restaurants and cafes. A fabulous outdoor shop (Ski Willy) is close at hand as is ski hire and Ramsau ski school is 5 minutes walk away. Public transport is very good, with regular buses to Ramsau Ort and Ramsau Kulm, where a wide variety of excellent shops, including 2 supermarkets can be found (the new Spar supermarket in Ramsau Ort is particularly good - we walk down to it, then catch the bus back). The regular bus service also goes to the Dachstein cable car and to Schladming which has excellent shops and a train station offering a direct connection to Salzburg and the airport. Taxis are also easily available and reasonably priced.

About Judith Roger

We live in a small village in North Yorkshire - Paul is a practising veterinary surgeon, Judy a retired A&E nurse. Judy worked for a year in a hospital in Innsbruck many years ago and developed a lifelong love of Austria - Paul also loves Austria, having enjoyed many holidays there.

Judith Roger purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Judith Roger chose Ramsau am Dachstein

When looking for a property to buy in Austria we were attracted by the Alps in Salzburgerland and Steiermark as these areas are less well known to British tourists (a well kept secret). Firstly, we fell in love with Ramsau am Dachstein which is a beautiful, quiet, spread out village lying high up on a plateau surrounded by beautiful mountains. Walking from our apartment to Ramsau Ort is just magical in all the seasons and the air is incredibly clean and fresh. We need to pack our sunglasses all year round, as the sunshine has an exceptional quality - they call it 'walking on sunshine'. We chose the apartment mainly because of the breathtaking views, and the extensive balcony, but it is also very comfortable and an excellent size for 2 - 4 guests. Haus Karlwirt is a friendly building and in a lovely, quiet, peaceful location, but with easy access to footpaths, buses, shops, Ramsau beach and the Rittisberg. We stay in the apartment as often as we can, so there are many home comforts there which can be enjoyed by our guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The apartment is very comfortable and very well appointed with everything one would need to make a holiday relaxed and stress free. The situation is excellent with bus stops close by and Ramsau beach within 5 minutes' walk. The views are superb. As we were there in the late summer we were able to take advantage of all the wonderful walks which can be accessed direct from the apartment building. There are many welcoming restaurants and bars within walking distance of the apartment. It was very easy to get provisions from the supermarkets in Ramsau Kulm. A great place for all ages.

Beautiful, spacious apartment with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful apartment ideally located for a skiing or walking holiday for adults or families. The views from the apartment and wraparound balcony are astonishingly good. Very well equipped, everything we needed for cooking, washing and cleaning was supplied. The apartment is very well presented and cleaned to a high standard. Amazing value for money. Excellent ski hire, ski lessons and slopes are available just a few minutes walk away. So many activities and places to visit, a highlight was the night tobogganning down the Rittisberg. The deli in Ramsau Ort is well worth a visit too! This was our first skiing holiday as a family, we had a brilliant time and we would recommend Apartment Waltraud to anyone.

Feeling at home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed ourself very much in this apartment. The view at the Rittisberg is great. The house is very comfortable. Parking can be done at your own spot. Shops aren't around the corner (beside a Schlecker), but we deed our groceries when we returned from the piste.

In front of the house is a langlauf route. Although we came there to ski, it looked very welcoming to try langlaufing too. Perhaps we will, one day...The house owner is very kind and very easy to reach.

Our son of 6, went to a skischool in Rohrmoos (so we could a ski in the same area), but the Rittisberg is great to learn skiing too. At the Rittisberg you have a fairytail route.
