We went to London for a week and then back to USA

LHR to EWR was in United business

We had 2 seats and in back of us 2 seats

 

 

 

Overall Austria, Hinterglemm is an amazing place to visit yourself and with kids. The hotel was really beautiful the food was great. There is a lot to do there for adults and kids. I will definitely go back when I get a chance.

I hope my trip report isnít too long and the pictures arenít too much, but I wanted you to get some good ideas from my report.

I am looking into this place. It appears they are not open this summer. Anyone have other recommendations for kosher Alps hotels?

Those menus look so Israeli.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Great Memories!
Food is good but has the europian twist which I hate...
Attractions were great!

Very few Kosher programs are operating this year.
Look into My Kosher Hotel in Italy

Yes. It can range from very good to not, based on your expectations. But I would say that in general for Americans in Europe if not in a true luxury hotel.

Thanks. I think we are going to the Swiss alps, stay in airbnb and will bring frozen meals. Will come to similar price, but get to choose what we eat
and exactly where we are going.

There is nothing like coming back to a ready hot meal, when you go around all day especially hiking you donít want to come to a frozen meal.

This is said if price is not the issue.

I would be willing to do this for this hotel, but since its closed, I am not sure My kosher hotel is the same experience. If others on here disagree, I am open to hearing.
Also, going without kids this trip, so was hoping to save the kosher hotel experience for when easy food with kids is needed in future iyH.
Another issue are flights.
Booked a non-stop in J NYC-ZRH for now. Cant find saver to VCE with nearly as good times.

side point I would try to get a Betty Crocker or similar shipped to the place youíre staying, even 2, you could have a wide range of foods ready in minutes.

Thanks. If we get an airbnb I would just double wrap in oven or microwave so it can be heated quickly.
Have done POM a number of times, and BH very satisfied even after long days.

Personally I prefer the Dolomiti to the Alps. The landscapes are more dramatic.

This is a very flexible topic. But in short My Kosher Hotel is top notch for a Kosher program that's open all year.it is way better than Levin arosa or Galitzky in St Moritz.

I was there a few times and always had a very good experience. Not a KMR but very good.

Which Kosher hotels or programs have you been to? Which expectations do you have that you think this will disappoint? I have been to dozens of Kosher programs and I can assure you that it is worth every penny. I haven't been to a different program that got you more for the money than MKH

If you already booked that is something else.

The only major downside of MKH is that the driving in the area is moderate. (My first time in MKH trip report = https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=69252.0)
