Waters of Austria

A little known fact about Austria is that it is one of the places in the world which are very rich in natural water sources. Water is used as drinking water and for agriculture, but also as an enormous source of power. Also, the water streams in the Alps are very beautiful and there are numerous impressive waterfalls to be discovered.

Travelling Slovenia

Slovenia is a little country in the midst of Europe. Situated below Austria and on top on the Balkan peninsula it is a gateway between Central Europa and Southeastern Europe. The little country is very mountainous and covered in thick forests. Nature roams (almost) freely here and the culture is rich and with a lot of history.

Discovering Bad Gastein

During the 19th century Bad Gastein in Austria became a fashionable resort in the Alps, visited by European monarchs and the rich and wealthy. In this period many impressive hotels were built in the principal styles of the era – classicism and art deco. In the decades after WWII Bad Gastein lost its appeal to other places and the remote town became forgotten more and more. Lately efforts were made to preserve and maintain the cultural heritage in Bad Gastein. The shine of the days gone by is coming back again slowly but surely.

Pictures of Austria

Since the COVID-Crisis in 2020 we all had the unique chance to discover our little countries anew. Personally I travelled a lot before but mostly abroad, so I didn’t have many opportunities to travel around Austria. This change substantially in the past year and a half and so I discovered many architectural and natural places in Austria I didn’t know before.
