I dined at a restaurant up in the Alps. Good scenery and good food.

As for hotel, I stayed in Hotel Böhlerstern Kapfenberg, a 4-star hotel. A very homely hotel.


There isn’t much attraction in this town as it is extremely small. It is a good place to get away if you wanted to avoid the metropolitan.
