Hahndorf (our treat)

Greetings blogsters!
I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine wasn't the most exciting (very quiet one) so this morning I went with my daughters (as a bit of a treat) to a place called Hahndorf. (Around 40 min drive from the city).
It's a quaint Little town in the Adelaide hills,  Sth. Australia.

At Hahndorf they have this gorgeous cafe` called chocolate n.5. They make the best hot chocolate and waffles to die for. (Our treat when we need a pick me up).

I forgot to take a photo of the waffles,  it wasn't until half way through eating, that I realise I hadn't taken a photo of the very thing we went there for.

It had been a while since we had some waffles and as this will be my last treat for 4wks you can understand why I forgot to take the photo, I was busy savouring every mouthful.

There are some beautiful old stone buildings and lots of amazing art and craft shops at Hahndorf.
Hahndorf was established by German immigrants in Adelaide.
This gorgeous red vintage car was out the front of a craft shop.

This beautiful old wagon advertises the market.
This brought back memories of when I was a child and used to ride on the back of one.
(Back home in Italy).

I love stone buildings!
 I don't think modern buildings have anywhere near the charecter, these have!
The wooden tubs all over the footpaths add charm to the place!

This is a great tourist attraction so if you come to Adelaide go see it. It is only around 40min.,  from the city.


  1. Pics came out lovely! I want to go back already lol

  2. What a great post,it is so lovely to see where you live- those stone buildings are a little bit like the gorgeous stone work in the Cotswolds here in the UK.
    And as for the hot chocolate and waffles....
    Warm Wishes,
