High rope course in Hinterglemm

High rope course in Hinterglemm, Austria

While I was walking through a valley in Hinterglemm there was a certain whirr in the sky. People crossed on a high rope course in 100+ meters high the valley. Though the people dashed down the rope on high-speed I tried to take a photo. Can you see the person near the warning element for planes? Can you imagine to do the same in this scenery?

Hauser Kaibling in Styria

Summit of Hauser Kaibling, Austria

Only a pink sheep was witness: After a small climb, I enrolled myself into the summit register (Gipfelbuch) of the Hauser Kaibling. Speaking about sheep: There is an interesting trail about sheep around the summit.

Impression of the Semmering Railway

Impression of the Semmering Railway, Austria

I am often tweeting while being on a train of the Semmering Railway (Semmeringbahn) in Austria. This time I went  through the same area on foot. I tried to hike along the railroad but this wasn’t always possible. So I took this impression of the landscape along the Semmering Railway from a nearby summit. Can you see the small viaduct of the railway between all these rocks?

Lärchwand Lift in Kaprun

Lärchwand Lift in Kaprun, Austria

In order to climb up to the hydroelectric plant at the Mooserboden I took this special funicular which is generally known as Lärchwand Lift. Standing on the platform, which is even able to lift trucks and busses, offers a stunning view of the mountainous scenery near Kaprun.
