Tyrol and Salzburg 9.8.-22.8.20

Updated: Dec 30, 2021


Our first stop is this pretty city with many small streets, surrounded by mountains (a pity: at the moment the pipes in the whole old town are being renovated with correspondingly many construction sites).

With the futuristic Hungerburgbahn and with 2 sections of the cable car Seegrube-Hafelekar you can reach the local mountain 'Nordkette' with 2269 m right from the old town.

Pinzgau - Hohe Tauern National Park

We continue via the Gerlos Pass to the Krimml Waterfalls in Pinzgau. Over a steep 430m high ascent you have again and again magnificent views of the three fall stages of the water masses.

The choice of possible excursions in the Hohe Tauern National Park is breathtaking (we get a whole book of suggestions). We decide on a panoramic hike on the Wildkogel with a view of the Grossvenediger. We will definitely come here again and take much more time.


The Mozart city is definitely worth a visit. From the two vantage points, Mönchsberg and the huge Hohensalzburg Fortress, you have a magnificent view of the culturally rich old town with its narrow streets, large boulevards and of course the many churches and the cathedral.

Lake landscape in the Salzkammergut

We spend a week in this very beautiful area with many lakes and hills which invite you to hike and swim. Here are some highlights:

Hallstatt, with pretty wooden houses, literally sticks between the mountain and Lake Hallstatt. The Chinese like this village so much that they immediately copied it in China.

Hike around the Fuschlsee with its enchanting blue-turquoise colored water including bathing at one of the many dreamy bathing spots.

By chance we discovered the impressive headquarters of Red Bull on the outskirts of the village of Fuschl:

Round trip along the beautiful lakes of Mond, Attinger and Traun with a detour to the Feuerkogel and an hour hike to the Europe Cross, which consists of stones from all EU countries. But the Brexit has not yet taken place here 😊.

A varied excursion by boat from St.Gilgen to St. Wolfgang and the steep steam rack railroad up the Schafberg with an overwhelming 360° panorama.
