Zillertal mountain hike

Last weekend, I went on a mountain hike with my camera. Fortunately it didn’t rain, so I could take many photos of rocks, mountains and the sky. We started Friday evening, walking for three hours before arriving at the hut Alpenrose where we stayed for the night. The next day we had big plans: climbing up Schönbichler Horn and descending to the Schleigeisspeicher storage lake (above).

Visit to Vienna


Last week I visited Austria’s capital city for the first time in my life. While the weather was not very pleasing — to say the least — Vienna itself kept its promise. It has a historic centre with many magnificent buildings like the “Burg” theatre, the opera. The town hall resembles a church with its many towers. Various churches and cathedrals wait to be visited, what I did with St. Stephan’s Cathedral, St. Charles’s Church. The culturally interested finds many museums and sights like Hunderwasser’s house. I visited also MUMOK, the museum for modern art. Its building resembles a monolithic black block from the outside.
