I'm looking for a romantic restaurant (fireplace, view of the snowy mountains, not too big) in Austria within ski region. The region should be reachable in about 2.5 h from Munich by car. How can I find one?

I would be happy with some special recommendations but also with a link to a website where I can search for one. Some hints how to start the searching would be helpful as well... Just using Google is not very helpful. :/

Austria has a lot of ski resorts. Can you bit a little bit more specific on the region? Or do you really want to cover whole Austria? –  RoflcoptrException Nov 21 '11 at 20:33

little bit too broad at present (see faq) - Austria has a lot of mountains, and ski regions, and restaurants ;) Could you narrow it please - do you want near Vienna, or Salzburg perhaps? Where are you flying into? –  Mark Mayo Nov 21 '11 at 21:04

If you're willing to drive 2.5 hours from Munich you can reach some of the famous ski resorts in Austria. A good starting point to find some resorts is this website, that maps a lot of them to a map. You're particularly interested in those on the left side of Austria. This site is very similar, but maybe even easier to understand, since here Munich is also displayed. Some of the biggest and most popular ski resorts in Austria are:

Ischgl (particularly to do some Après-Ski)

Kitzbühel (famous for its world cup ski race)

Lech am Arlberg (on the border between Vorarlberg and Tirol, it is immo the biggest ski resort around Munich)

St. Anton am Arlberg (its own ski resort, but also part of a association between various ski resorts in the Arlberg region. You can go skiing here and with the same ticket also in Lech and other resorts.)

Sölden (famous for the world cup start every winter and a lot of party going on there)

I tried almost all of them by myself, but I never checked if there is a romantic restaurant somewhere there. I would suggest you decide on a ski resort that suits you and then go to a website like Tripadvisor to see if there is a restaurant that is ok for you.

Very nice links, thank you! I think I'll find something there :-) –  strauberry Nov 22 '11 at 8:34

Supporting Roflcoptr's answer:

Kitzbühel was a wonderful place to go on a ski vacation, and I say this as a dyed-in-the-wool Colorado native. While I was there with a friend, and thus wasn't so much looking for a romantic dining option, the actual town is a fairly charming Austrian town, with lots of cozy, dark restaurants and the like that with a romantic partner could be fun.

I believe the closest actual city is Salzburg.

It is more or less in the middle between Salzburg and Innsbruck. Both cities have an airport, but if you're coming by car from Munich you will drive over/near Salzburg (which is also worth a visit btw) or Rosenheim. –  RoflcoptrException Nov 23 '11 at 8:59
    
Visit Mozart's House, where they make it sound like the allies bombed it on purpose. –  Fomite Nov 23 '11 at 9:00
