    St. Gilgen

    This lovely little village near Salzburg was breathtaking. Situated along Lake Wolfgang, or Wolfgangsee as the locals refer, the village is nestled at the base of the Alps, with houses and shops flooding over with flowers.

    Sit and take in the sights, or browse the shops - either will provide restful calm as you make your way through the byways in Austria.

    Mozart's mother and sister were born in this little village, so for those who are following the footsteps of Mozart, consider this village on your itinerary.

    The Alps

    The Alps are a popular ski resort in winter and an ideal hiking area in summer. But between these seasons you hardly find tourists here. That's the ideal time for hiking. I spent one day in the Alps near "Lake Königssee", a lake on the German side, 20km west of Salzburg. It was a clear and sunny day. The snow still had a height of up to 50 cm but the air had almost +20°C - ideal conditions for a snowball fight.
