    Salzburg - Zeppezauerhaus

    July 6, 2019 in Austria ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    5 1/2 Stunden, 15 km, 1350 hm (davon 1200 auf den letzten 5 km 😉).
    War anstrengend, klar, aber nicht so, dass ich völlig am Ende meiner Kräfte war (trotz des als schwarz eingestuften Dopplersteigs am Schluss).
    Also ein prima Einstieg! Jetzt freue ich mich auf's Abendessen: nach 5 Tagen budgetfreundlicher Brötchen am Chiemsee gibt es HP mit 3 Gängen, yummy!!
    Drückt mir die Daumen, dass es nicht nur regnet morgen...

    Über den Wolken

    September 30, 2020 in Austria ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Nein, wir haben für heute noch nicht genug.😅
    Und die SalzburgCard muss ja auch genutzt werden.
    Also geht vom Spielzeugmusem direkt weiter mit dem Bus zur Untersbergbahn.
    Oben hat es 3°C. Und Schnee! Die Kinder sind begeistert.
    Die Sicht ist nicht ganz klar, aber durch die Wolken zu fahren hat auch etwas. Und zwischen drin reißen die Wolken auch immer wieder auf.

    Für mich hatte die Fahrt übrigens einiges an Bauchkribbeln. Das Schwenken am Masten vorbei, oder als wir über die Kuppe gehen.
    Die Mädels sind aber einfach nur von der Aussicht begeistert.
    Das Trampolin im Garten, die Festung in der Ferne...

    Cable car Untersberg

    May 30, 2018 in Austria ⋅ ☁️ 12 °C

    Side trip to Untersberg to take the cable car up the mountain- the lift rises an impressive 1,320 m in elevation. We saw our first patches of snow today - dirty and icy but snow all the same !

    Andrew Marich

    Hey I thought you were meant to be walking! Nobody said anything about a cable car!!

    Lara Marich

    We haven’t started our walk yet! We head to the starting village today and set off in the morning. Feeling slightly nervous.

    Such beautiful scenery! X

    Boah! Nach den Brötchen war mein Hunger eigentlich gestillt, aber das übertrumpft alles.
    Schnitzel und Pommes für jedermann, Spaghetti mit Tomatensoße und Tonnen Parmesan für mich.
    Vielen, vielen Dank! Aber jetzt bin ich lecker satt.Read more

    Sieht super aus!

    Viel Dank, für die Brötchen...

    July 11, 2017 in Austria ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    ...vielen dank, wie nett von ihnen!
    Sonst niemand nahm uns auf, außer diese kleine Bäckerei. Während des Sprechens spürte ich wie die Frau sich dagegen strebte uns etwas zu essen zu geben. Aber sie stellte sich den Bedenken und zeigte ihr Mitgefühl. Ohne Unterbrechung machte sie klar, dass sie all dies aus ihrer eigenen Tasche zieht. Mein Herz verkrampfte sich, aber ich wusste nichts darauf zu antworten, als "Dankeschön" und "Vielen Dank". Wie sonst kann ich ihr meine Dankbarkeit zeigen? Aber sie blieb nett.
    Also dankeschön, liebe Bäckerei in Grödig.

    October 7, 2017 in Austria ⋅ ⛅ 8 °C

    It was cold this morning, still a bit drizzly, but you only get one chance, so we set off to catch a couple of buses to get to the cable car which takes you up to the 1853m summit of Mt Untersberg. This is part of the mountain range which borders with Germany, so you have views of both Austria and Germany from the top.

    Given it was rainy, we could see that the top of the mountain was in cloud, so in some ways I thought all we would get to do really is take a cable car into the clouds, have a hot drink and come back down again.

    Whilst waiting for the cable car we saw a sign advising it was -1ºC at the summit! Just a wee bit chilly...

    The cable car was over 3km in length and was a great trip up the mountain - about 10 minutes or so. Just as we arrived it started to snow! Only tiny little bits of snow, but snow none the less. We walked out on to the terrace, lasted less than a minute because it was so cold, in cloud and very windy.

    What we did stumble on to out on the terrace though was a lot of Austrian military, new and old, in the middle of some sort of ceremony. When I asked it was a WWII commemoration for fallen soldiers. Very elaborate military uniforms, including swords, fancy axes, feathers on hats, capes, men with curled handlebar moustaches... Of course, in WWII the Austrian Army was fighting for the Nazis so hardly an Ally, but they saw sense by the end (it was a good excuse to go and read a bit of Austrian military history whilst having a hot drink - not wine!).

    Finn declared it the best thing we have done on the holiday so far and was begging to go back out into the snow (quite possibly because Kate had thrown a snowball at him and he needed retribution?). Anyway, as we were eating lunch, over the space of about 45 seconds, the cloud completely cleared away to reveal blue skies and views over Austria and (we presume) Germany - we couldn't stay outside to work out where the boundaries occurred - it was too cold.

    There were lots of Austrian older generation soldiers stomping around in the snow, so managed to sneak a photo of one who was in his cape, amazing hat with feather etc. Also a frau in a dirndl... and I reckon she must have had very cold ankles!

    We had soup for lunch - husband never willingly eats soup. Photo worthy event.

    None of you look dressed warm enough for cold weather

    Alison Craswell

    So that you can remember your holiday and all the Dirndl wearing women chasing, for the small price of $30au and $7 postage, you can have your own!

    Thanks Al, I would need to start attending Oktoberfest every year in Brisbane to get value from that purchase. Craig would definitely need lederhosen. Quite a number of people serving in restaurants are wearing the leathery shorts. They look great!

    We are dressed fine as long as we aren't tromping around in the snow. Top of 9 degrees today and more rain. Grr.
