Can I bring a dog with me?

We like dogs! ... but we also love our furniture. If your dog is well behaved, does not nibble at carpets or table legs and does not scratch at doors, we also welcome your four-legged friend. However, please inform us if you want to take your dog with you, because preparations will be necessary. We can provide bowls for food and water and – most importantly – a towel for drying your dog. We do not expect your dog to lie on the sofas or in the bed! Please understand that we charge an extra cleaning fee of € 30 if you bring a dog with you.

Where can I park my car?

You have probably already informed yourself about your destination and know that space is very limited in Hallstatt, and this is especially true for cars and parking sites. The centre of Hallstatt is therefore traffic-calmed, the entrance is blocked with barriers, which can only be passed by residents.For this reason local people use their cars only if it is absolutely necessary, as streets are very narrow und often only one-lane. The very few parking spaces in the centre are therefore reserved for residents.The parking garage P1 is reserved for overnight guests like you who have booked accommodation in the centre. A shuttle will take you from there to your accommodation.You can find more details

Please note that GPS may want to guide you directly into the restricted Gosaumühlstraße. Please drive into the tunnel (coming from Bad Goisern or Gosau) and follow the parking guidance system to the P1 parking garage.Please do not hesitate to contact us, we can always help you, but you can be sure to enjoy a traffic-calmed environment.

How does my luggage get to the house?

Do you have a lot of luggage? In this case we would like to offer to pick you up at the barrier and allow you to enter. Please let us know your approximate arrival time in advance and then call us shortly before you arrive. We will then meet you at the barrier. There is a loading zone directly in front of Ruth's House. You can stop there only for unloading your car, but please do not park there for longer.
To do this, please do not enter the tunnel coming from Bad Ischl or Gosau, but turn slightly left into Gosaumühlstraße immediately before the tunnel entrance. If you are coming via Bad Aussee and Obertraun, please drive through the tunnel and make a 180° turn shortly after the tunnel exit and also enter Gosaumühlstraße.

Does the house have internet access / WLAN?

Yes. Ruth’s House provides you with a WLAN connection - free of charge, of course. We ask you to sign a user agreement upon arrival and you will then receive the necessary access code.
