A second parking place is located in the indoor parking garage (number 16) on walking distance from the holiday home. In principle it is not allowed to park a second car outside and a limited number of special dedicated parking places are allotted in front of the holiday home. When there is heavy snow it is sensible to park the car in the indoor parking garage; in do ng so, the care remains free of snow and you will avoid a lot of work cleaning your car when you need it!
Purchase toll pass
Hochkrimml is located in the midst of the Gerlospass and you need a special toll pass to drive this pass. It can be sensible, when you travel with two cars, to purchase a one-day toll pass for one car and to purchase a 8- or 15-day toll pass for the other car; with this car and toll pass you can organize excursions or do your shopping. Tthis only applicable during the summer; during the winter no toll has to be paid as long as you can show a valid ski pass.
Off course you can cook the dinner in the apartment, but it is also possible to eat out and enjoy the simple but very tasteful Austrian kitchen; e.g. Restaurant Duxeralm (as from 2010 also open during summertime). In Krimml itself you can go to Hotel Burgeck, a good place to enjoy drinks and dinner!. For cheese-lovers, Pinzgauerkäsenockrl is recommended; THE restaurant to enjoy this specialty is the “Plattenalm”; you can walk to this restaurant via Duxeralm, Silberleiten. Unfortunately this restaurant is closed during summertime. For game, Finkau is the right address. As from here you can make wonderful strolls.
You can do your daily shopping in Krimml or in Königsleiten, both at a reasonable distance from the holiday home. During the winter season (as soon as ski lifts open until the moment they will be closed), a small shop is open opposite the sports shop: you can get fresh rolls and all kind of foodstuffs; the shop is open from 7.30 until 12.00 and from 14.00 until 17.00. As an extra service for the winter guests, Spar in Königsleiten is also open on Sunday from 15.00 – 18.00,
A must during summertime is the purchase of the SalburgerPass (“Karte”). With this pass, for which you pay a reasonable price, many attractions, places of interest, museums and swimming pools are accessible for free.
