    Salzwelten Altaussee

    June 18 in Austria

    For the English folks see below and also for the Swiss people who think they are more fancier if they read it in English.

    Eine geschichtliche Reise über die Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives Section, welche 1945 wichtige Kulturgüter im Bergwerk fanden und diese bis 1948 bergen konnten. In dem Bergwerk befanden sich Stücke wie das Genter Altarstück.

    Altaussee, 1. Etappe

    June 16 in Austria

    Die Reise ging bereits durch drei Länder (CH, D und A). Die Strecke ging über das Schweizer Rheintal über München nach Altaussee. Gegen 18.00 Uhr bin ich dort angekommen. Von der Familie Starl wurde ich herzlichst in Empfang genommen und werde in einem Ferienzimmer bei Ihnen übernachten. Die gebotene Aussicht vom Haus ist grossartig. Das Zelt ist somit noch ungenutzt.

    Per Zufall ging mein Verdauungsspaziergang noch am Feuerwehrlokal von Altaussee vorbei. In punkto Stil 10/10 Punkte für solch ein Lokal.Read more

    Dachstein Mountain

    October 11, 2017 in Austria

    When you are staying somewhere with lots of mountains, it is inevitable that a “thing” you want to see if on the other side of several mountains. The case today, where we drove nearly two hours back around the top of Salzburg and then south, and then west to get to the Dachstein Mountain in the Austrian Alps. Agenda: A cable car up to 2,700m, a walk across a suspension bridge, a daring walk down the “stairs to nothingness”, a journey through the “ice palace” carved inside a glacier, and then once we had come back down in the gondola, a 1.5 hour hike.

    We were blessed with perfect weather today – clear blue sky, 20C up on the mountain (but a lot colder in the wind) and 30cm of snow. The views across the alps were simply breathtaking.

    Suspension Bridge and Stairway

    October 11, 2017 in Austria

    So there is a suspension bridge which takes you across a ravene, with the option on walking out onto a platform called the "Stairway to Nothingness". I was the only one up for the challenge, until Finn, my boy who is usually afraid of heights, decided to join me. There is no logical reason why this increases the fear factor, but the last three stairs and the platform are made of glass, and really slippery with ice, and just stepping onto them increased the heart rate considerably.

    Good fun though!

  • Day159


    December 2, 2016 in Austria

    On the journey to Liezen we passed lots of large wooden chalets and mountains that had strips of snow in places but were snow free in others. It was only after a while that we realised this was due to snow machines churning out piles of snow that were then shovelled onto the ski slopes by ploughs.

    We entered Liezen through a corridor of large outlet stores lined with giant advertising billboards. The stopover was outside a sports centre and had enough room for three vans, although we were the only ones there. The narrow, straight road that ran adjacent to us was used for running and nordic walking and had a flat plain on the other side of it that led to a backdrop of mountains.

    As darkness fell, the temperature dropped and the biting wind grew in strength. We spent a restless night as it buffeted the van, but were rewarded at just before dawn by the sight of pinky peach rays of light peeking over one hill, shining through the clouds and on to the snow powdered mountainside!

    Ice Palace

    October 11, 2017 in Austria

    There are 8 glaciers up the top of the mountain which are collectively known as the Dachstein Glacier. An enterprising group of people have created an underground (underice?) labyrinth where there are various sculptures carved into ice. At one stage we were in a section with 26 metres of glacier overhead. A bit of trivia... it is a steady -0.2 degrees in all glaciers across the world. Felt a lot colder!Read more

    Hike in the Dachstein foothills

    October 11, 2017 in Austria

    We got back to the bottom of the gondola run and saw there was a track which took you to across a bit of a track. Had eaten a big lunch, so decided a bit of exercise wouldn't kill us with a 1.5 hour round trip, or thereabouts.

    Turned out to be a great idea - the kids got to have some snowball fights, Kate drank out of the little streams of melted snow that were running down the hill, we saw wild mountain goats, mainly because they had to move to escape the avalanche! In fact, we got to see three avalanches which was rather spectacular. They signal "look up now" with a large thunderous crack, and then snow just comes tumbling down. We saw the goats because they had to move to get out of the way of the second avalanche.Read more
