  1. Nicolette Waechter’s Mondsee (or Moon Lake) sounds like it’s a very nice place & what a wonderful historical treasure for anyone who had the opportunity purchase it.

    I have a close friend who lives in Austria & I’m quite fond of the people I’ve met from there. This place has a winning combination, of location, culture, history, the beauty of the great outdoors, unspoiled land and good people! I would feel blessed to be able to own such a place. I hope who ever bought it will be a good steward over Mondsee.
