Here are some pictures from my recent trip to Austria
On the way between Zell Am See and Kaprun
Is a nice and quick attraction, you walk (up) on steps for 15-20 minutes through a canyon. The entire way is really nice and relaxing.
By the end of the trail is this waterfall
View from Victoria hotel
A house made out of wood chunks near the hotel
Alpine Coaster Maisifiltzer www.maiskogel.at
is one of the longest mountain coasters in Austria
The following pictures are from Kitzsteinhorn – the highest mountain of Salzburg
is really amazing; it takes 3 cable cars to reach the top. Make sure to be there before 10:00 am, as the line to the last (highest) cable car gets really crowded after 10:00 am. Some people who arrived at 10:30 had to wait more than two hours (!)
There are activities to do by every station like by all major mountains. I prefer to go straight to the top first and then do the activities on the way down.
On top you’ve got a outdoor Gipfelwelt (balcony) with beautiful panoramic scenes, it is freezing up there. From here you can also take a mountain train to a designated area for snow tubing.
On the way up
The line starts forming at the third station to go to the top
A small fraction of the view on top
View seen from the restaurant on top. Note the snow tubing area
This photo was taken while resting behind the snow tubing area
At the third station - before going down to the second station
At the second station (one before the bottom) you can take some breathtaking hikes
The following are typical scenes on the way to Innsbruck
