    Zell am See Things to Do

    St. Hippolyte's Church really didn't look much from the outside. Built in Romanesque style in a darkish grey stone, it had a tall tower, and some lovely old doors.I was able to go inside, even though it was early morning. This Church is one of the oldest known building remnants of the Pinzgau region.Inside, it's a mixture of gothic and romanesque....

    Badgastein Off The Beaten Path

    During our stay in Badgastein we rented bikes (at our hotel, but there is also a sports store near the train station where you can rent bikes) and went on a bike ride to Böckstein, south of Badgastein. It's a short but beautiful trip. Unlike the streets of Badgastein, there are no steep hills on the way to Böckstein.

    I can't speak of a fondest memory, more memorable memory. At the time we were in Austria there was very bad weather in the first days of our holiday. Several roads were difficult to drive on.

On top of that you have a marvellous view at the Festung Hohenwerfen.You start at the visitor centre where you buy the entrance tickets. You now have to walk for 15-20 minutes to reach the cable car...

  • Eisriesenwelt - Fantastic ice caves

    Werfen Things to Do

    Eisriesenwelt makes for a fantastic visit. I can very much recommend it as a visit for the entire family. The only thing you have to take into consideration is that inside the cave you have to climb a lot of stairs, 700 up and then 700 down again.The walk to the caves is on a decent path but goes uphill the entire way.
