Subject: The Golden Colt, Klagenfurt
Hi All,

Wow seems like everytime I go to Klagenfurt it snows! We've had around a foot just in the last 12 hours...I love the Chistmas / New Year's Market here and I always stay at The Golden Colt, in which the guesthouse run by the Prettner Family (Hanno Prettner is multiple world champion model airplane pilot and his mother, "Oma" runs the place)is located. It is right in the heart of Klagenfurt on Alter Platz.

The rooms are clean and modern, all recenly remodeled and furnished in the over 500-year old building. I've translated, into English, the short history of The Golden Colt and put it up on my website. You can find it under the following link if you like...

To find out more about Hanno Prettner just plug his name into Yahoo or Google.

The service is really first class but I recommend booking a room early when planning a trip as the Fremdenzimmer Prettner is very popular with foreign and Austrian tourists.

If you're coming to Klagenfurt in the next few days bring a snow shovel! :)
