Scharnitz (Austria)

Just across the German-Austria border from Mittenwald (Germany) is this lovely Austrian town of Scharnitz. The nice hotel we stayed in for a night (Gasthof Risserhof) was sold and is no longer operating as a hotel (very sad). We enjoyed the hotel, our room, the restaurant, and a pleasant walk up the hill nearby.

We followed the path to the Kalvarienberg.
The signs for "Haus Martin" (our last name) and "Haus Rainer" (our grandson's name)
made us feel like we had discovered family roots :)
