Grünsee

Another lake picture. Did not know I have been to a lake area instead of the Alps. The Grünsee is part of the Weißsee Gletscherwelt at the end of the gorgeous Stubach valley, located in the High Tauern National Park.

Many hiking trails of different length, all are embedded in a breathtaking landscape and peaceful nature are inviting for a trip of your choice. If your trip ends in the Stubachtal again, make sure to stop by the “Alpengasthof Paletti” and try their Kaiserschmarrn. You won’t regret.

Kaprun High Mountain Reserviores

Dam and lake Wasserfallboden as seen from lake Mooserboden. Both lakes are forming the high mountain reserviores of Kaprun. Caused by the unfortunate weather I was not able to have a look at the surrounding summits (Kitzsteinhorn, Großes Wiesbachhorn etc.)

But hey, fresh snow and walking in the clouds! The photo was taken pretty much at 2000 m above sea level.

Frozen Summer

This photo perfectly describes my summer vacation this year. With its 2304m above sea level, this spot is a great starting point for hiking trips – if it would have been snowless. Lucky as I was, I got 10cm of fresh snow and a temperature slightly below zero. It would have been refreshing, if it was hot down in the valley. But it wasnt. Summer vacation in Austria this year: autumn with a touch of winter.
