Do you sometimes feel the urge to escape the city to finally breathe fresh air and hear nothing else than the flowing of the river? Especially after the hustle-and-bustle in Berlin and Vienna, the calm and green countryside was more than welcome to us. So to charge our batteries, we visited Salzburg for a couple of days and after some research I also found the Bluntautal (Bluntau Valley) near the village of Golling. When I saw the photos of dense forests, rivers and an incredibly clear lake between mountains, I knew this is it! And truly, it was a good choice: Not only it’s close to Salzburg but also it’s an easy hike through amazing sceneries!

Following the stream, passing cows and bridges…
And here it is: The Bluntau lake! It’s small but the colour is breathtaking!
The lake’s water supply comes from this stream, crystal-clear like glass and straight from the alps. Out of this world.
Lunch break at Bärenhütte, an idyllic restaurant in the middle of the forest.
