Part of a rainbow caught on a train journey north of Graz. The photo was taken through dirty windows, the train was at high-speed and probably most of the camera settings were wrong. I didn’t edit the photo though in order to show how intense the colours of the rainbow were.
On a train journey from Vienna to Carntuntum-Petronell I took this photo of an ancient Roman monument. The structure is part of the archaeology park Carnuntum. Local people call this monument Heidentor (Pagans’ Gate).

On a train journey through Pongau, a region of the Austrian state Salzburg, I took this photo through the windows of my train. It shows parts of the city walls of Radstadt. The city was founded in 13th century and is member of the Small Historic Cities (Kleine Historische Städte) of Austria.
While passing the municipality of Stainach-Pürgg I took this pic of Trautenfels Castle (Schloss Trautenfels). It houses collections telling about the culture in the Styrian regions Ennstal and Ausseerland. The snow-covered mountain behind the castle is known as Grimming.
The charm of travelling single track railways in Austria: While waiting for the opposite train you have the chance to watch cattle grazing in a lovely landscape. This photo I took on such a siding place between Stainach and Schladming in the Austrian state of Styria.
The Völklingen Ironworks (Völklinger Hütte) is a World Heritage Site as well as part of the European Route of Industrial Heritage.
