Fun traffic sign in Hallstatt

Fun traffic sign in Hallstatt, Austria

I saw this – probably unofficial – traffic sign in Hallstatt next to the famous Hallstatt Lake. It makes people aware of stewards crossing the street. It happens to be that the restaurant and the open-air seating area are on different sides of the lane.

Christmas crib in Sankt Wolfgang

Christmas crib in Sankt Wolfgang im Salzkammergut, Austria

An interesting detail of the Christmas market in Sankt Wolfgang (Wolfgangseer Advent) is a Christmas crib created by the wood carver Matthäus Mayrhauser. The crib consists of about 40 life-size sculptures scattered over a larger area. Everybody is invited to walk betCeen the figures so in the evening it is difficult to decide who is a real person and what is a wooden figure.

Scalaria Air Challenge

Scalaria air challenge above Wolfgangsee in Salzkammergut, Austria

While staying at the event location Scalaria in December 2005, I saw many photos and posters of this great water plane: the Dornier DO24 TT. It reminded me that the Scalaria Air Challenge takes place in the sky above lake Wolfgangsee every year.
