Teichalm is one of those charming towns located in the end of the world. And by saying it, I mean one hour drive from Graz. For the first time I stumbled upon the name Teichalm when I’d received the invitation for the company’s christmas celebration. While driving there during the evening it truly seemed that it’s in the middle of nowhere and I missed all those beautiful views and details. However just after arriving at the Latschenhütte restaurant, we were welcomed by the wonderful scents of hot wine and large buffet. After tasting the most delicious cheese Spätzle I’ve ever had, I forgot about the long drive and enjoyed the great variety of food.
After hearing a lot about the Almland region, which is surprisingly also famous for their special milky coffee with rum, I’ve decided to give this place another chance – but this time during the day. It was a great idea, and I enjoed the wintry walk to the fullest.
Details on the wooden houses, little craved hearts on the window shutters, old-school horse carriage rides in the snowy forest, frozen pond and on the top of that – a ski resort and multiple forest tracks for the cross-country skiing. This place reminded me of the Austrian villages from the children’s stories and I hope to visit it again while it’s all green and beautiful.
