    Marie waterfall

    Little of go minutes behind the house with the same name, falls the Marie waterfall.
    After some kilometres, it leads into the Salza.
    The peculiarity of this waterfall is that it falls over a steep rock wall, in which a Madonna stands in a niche of sandstone.
    I think that the Mariazells surrounding is a blessed place.

    Hubertus see

    This romantically situated sea was positioned by the industrialist-family Krupp about the turn of the century.
    The sea was named, after the sacred Hubertus, the protection patron of the hunters.
    The whole surroundings, the shores of the sea, and the nature in this area, are a real paradise for plants and animals, and a splendid spa for the tourists.
