Brilliant Bike Ride to Altaussee

Cycling from¬†Rosenhof, Ebensee to Bad Ischl With the Salzkammergut Trophy (Austria’s largest mountain bike marathon) taking place around early July every year, we decided to get a taste of what lied in store for some of the competitors by tackling a “small” section leaving the Rosenhof B&B in Ebensee, heading to Bad Ischl and towards Altaussee via Rettenbach Alm and Blaa-Alm, two restaurant/inns that are located on high plateaus in […]


TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Award

Having always set out to achieve a great service from day one of running the Rosenhof we were thrilled when we found our work was greatly appreciated by our guests and although it is nice to hear in person and receive friendly messages in our guestbook, it is also wonderful when it is shared with the world online as many guests tell us that they use reviews when choosing holiday […]


Cool Kayak on Traunsee

With Summer in full flow here we were reminded of one of our favourite outings last year when we got out for a paddle on Traunsee, which handily for us is only a short distance from the Rosenhof. The Traunsee is one of the most dramatic lakes in the Salzkammergut region of Austria, and is also the deepest lake in Austria, but have no fear it is also pretty shallow […]

The meadow behind the Rosenhof with just a few Spring flowers in it! The growth is so vigorous during this time that even just in the Rosenhof garden, different varieties of flowers […]


Sublime Ski Safari

Although there are no big 5 animals to track on a ski safari in Austria, there are plenty of snowy areas to explore with excellent varied terrain, all surrounded by the most beautiful scenery of the Salzkammergut region in Austria. View from the top of the sunniest plateau in Upper Austria, the Feuerkogel From Ebensee and the Rosenhof it’s possible to access 5 different ski areas with a great variety […]


Summer Sun Sun Sun

Although the Rosenhof is surrounded by stunning mountains it doesn’t mean we have snow or even cold conditions through the year. In fact from May to September the average temperature is nearer 20C/68F but often temperatures reach highs of 30C/86F and above – this is often surprising to many of our guests many of whom anticipate cooler weather on their Summer holiday. However, mountains are never to be underestimated and […]
