    I would like to send a very big thank you to you from my husband and I for the absolutely fantastic holiday we have just returned from the Hotel Alpenschlössl in Söll. The hotel was beautiful, the staff were so friendly, the views were amazing! We visited Scheffau one evening to listen to a brass band playing and drink schnaps! We also went for a wonderful walk from Scheffau up the mountains. Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity of visiting your amazing country. We cannot wait to return to the hotel next year!
