Can thoroughly recommend the Grand Hotel Toplice if you ever get back there. Absolutely beautiful part of the world and the drive to Salzburg is fantastic although on the last trip there was a truck accident in the Karawank tunnel which was closed for about 4hrsJust spent a lovely 2 days near Lake Bled in Slovenia, on our way back towards Salzburg now to drop off the hire car and enjoy our last evening before the flight home tomorrow.
I did a Christmas markets driving tour on a similar route in 2018, great little spot.I think it’s the weather App that’s causing me grief at the moment. 27C in Paris, 28C in Lyon, not a drop of rain and it’s wet and freezing cold in Melbourne.
Today we would have arrived at Konstanz to commence our 6 day cycle around the lake with stops in Germany, Switzerland and Austria. This bike tour was to be the highlight of the trip and was something I had been looking forward to for many months.
We managed to get 50% of the tour deposit refunded, unlike the Accor hotels on the itinerary. With credit vouchers for Paris, Lyon and Dresden hotels, subject to future travel restrictions, we may still make it Konstanz. I hope so!
