2019-05-09 THE MYSTERY CASTLE WITH THE PICTURE GALLERY

By |2019-05-08T19:48:53+01:00May 9th, 2019|Austria|

I can not remember in which castle I took the picture, but it was in Lower Austria. Anyway, it would be the best place to shoot a suspense thriller: enchanted rooms where people disappear, the perfect scenery for goosebumps in the cinema. Take your girlfriend with you and go through the castle; she will need a protector for sure.

2019-04-24 THE FIRST WARM DAYS IN AUSTRIA

By |2019-04-23T19:05:36+01:00April 24th, 2019|Austria|

Lake Neusiedl is a steppe lake between Austria and Hungary. This lake is only 1.5 meters deep with a muddy underground, very popular with kite surfers and sailors. Many visitors use the first warm summer days with a drink at the beach bars of the villages Weiden or Neusiedl am See.

2019-03-27 RUIN ON THE ROCKS

By |2019-03-26T22:04:29+01:00March 27th, 2019|Austria|

My parents are fans of the Dürnstein Castle, in the Wachau. The castle was built in 1192; nowadays the castle is a ruin. There is a half an hour walk uphill from the village Dürmstein to the ruin. Once a year I walk the tour with my parents. From the walls of the ruin you get a beautiful view of the UNESCO world heritage Wachau.

2019-03-13 COWS AND BULLS ON THE ALP

By |2019-03-13T21:25:09+01:00March 13th, 2019|Austria|

On the descent from the mountain Schafsberg, my wife Karin and I came from the rocky alpine landscape where only a few pines grew into the zone of the green Alps. Suddenly we were surrounded by dozens of cows, where we quickly realized that some bulls were among them. They were all eager to eat, so we could pass unobtrusively without causing a stir. In Austria we have recently had incidents with cows and hikers, so it is better not to provoke the cows, and especially the bulls.

2019-03-06 MOUNTAIN CHAIN NEAR SCHLADMING

By |2019-03-06T12:25:06+01:00March 6th, 2019|Austria|

From the Dachstein glacier, you get the view of the massive mountain chains of the Alps. I wonder if climbers were already on all the summits which I could see. The Dachstein Sky Walk was the platform for the photo, an observation deck for the people who are not afraid of heights.

2019-03-02 HIGH SNOW IN FILZMOOS

By |2019-03-01T20:25:24+01:00March 2nd, 2019|Austria|

Filzmoos is a small community in the UNESCO World Heritage Hallstatt-Dachstein / Salzkammergut Cultural Landscape. My wife Karin and I had the opportunity to ride a horse-drawn carriage on an alpine pasture. There was lush snow, some houses were snowed in and only the roofs visible. During my photo session, I was stuck in the snow up to my knees.

2019-02-28 THE RAILWAY ON THE MOUNTAIN SUMMIT

By |2019-02-27T20:05:10+01:00February 28th, 2019|Austria|

The cog railway pushes itself up to 1732 m until it reaches the summit of the Schafsberg in Salzburg. A technical masterpiece from the architecture of the uphill tracks between rocks, on serpentines and on viaducts where you would have a free fall of hundreds of meters on one side. For the passengers it is safe, and you get a broad panorama when driving. It has been built in 1893 and still in full operation for the joy of visitors and mountain lovers.

2019-02-11  BRIDGE ON THE GLACIER

By |2019-02-10T14:54:37+01:00February 11th, 2019|Austria|

In the high mountains, the trend is towards spectacular viewing platforms and floating bridges. At the Dachstein, at 2995 meters there is the Suspension Bridge. It is perfectly safe to walk over, but people who are afraid of heights should not look down.

2019-01-27   PUMPKIN FAIR

By |2019-01-26T18:29:09+01:00January 27th, 2019|Austria|

Once a year the city Retz gets famous for its pumpkin fair. Orange colors and garlands line the streets. The decoration of the houses and many food-booths are in the sign of the pumpkin. I tasted a Prague ham roasted over an open fire with charcoal. Then a glass of white wine, which is the second famous product of this area.

2019-01-25   GÖTTWEIG ABBEY AERIAL

By |2019-01-25T19:39:18+01:00January 26th, 2019|Austria|

Parking on a lane between fields was the best place for starting my DJI drone. The location was fully compatible with my license, which forbids me to fly over a residential area. I wanted this shot of Göttweig Abbey, residing on a higher hill and its surroundings. It is home of Benedictine monks. After the drone session, we did get up to the abbey and visited the churches, the big wall, and the sightseeing platform.
