Retreat: Millstatt

By now dawn is just a few hours from breaking over the lake where our daughter and group are staying for their weekend retreat. She managed to post a few pictures on her Facebook page earlier today and I must say, the views are simply breathtaking!

The group is staying at the Schloss Heroldeck. According to their website, the “castle” was built around 1912 as a holiday home, but in recent years it’s been used as a retreat center for Christian groups from all over Europe.

On the way to the castle they stopped for lunch at the oldest restaurant in Steiermark, Austria, the Gasthaus ßinter restaurant. It’s been around since 1040! You read that correctly. 1040!

I look forward to seeing more photos from the group!
