The best (half) day trips in and around Salzburg

December 12, 2017
best day trips from Salzburg

One of my recent articles was a detailed guide about Salzburg, but in my opinion, a trip to Salzburg would be incomplete if you’re missing out the spectacular surroundings of the city. Salzburg is lucky to have some of the most idyllic landscapes on the planet right at its doorstep and there’s dozens of places waiting to be discovered. Even if you only have half day off, it’s easy to venture out and catch a fresh breeze in the mountains,…

Being a tourist in your own city: The ultimate year-round guide to Salzburg

November 12, 2017
Salzburg best time to go

The hills are alive…. You know how to continue that sentence right? If you’re not from Austria, let me tell you that a minority of my fellow citizens (and myself) never have seen The Sound of Music (am I missing out anything?) Nevertheless I still can tell you quite something about Salzburg, which – just like Mozart – is my birth town (and that’s the only thing we both have in common!) – and coincidentally this article comes out just…

mountain lake hiking Austria

[In friendly collaboration with Tranquini and Achensee Tourism] How do you relax? I’d like to know! I’m happy to announce a giveaway at the end of this post – so please stay tuned 😉 While traveling is my favourite thing to do on the planet, it’s not always very relaxing.

A walk on frozen Lake Neusiedl

frozen lake Neusiedl

After my rather sensory-overloaded post about Tunis, I’m sharing something on the quieter, more winter-ish side this time: We’re experiencing a rather harsh winter this year and not often you get the opportunity to walk or ice-skate on a natural frozen lake. Last week I did a little excursion to nearby Neusiedlersee, a favourite relaxation destination for us Viennese (see also here) .…

Winter holidays in Bad Gastein

Bad Gastein winter holiday

I hope you had a great start into 2017 everyone! It’s my first weekend at home after traveling to different places and I finally can show you what I’ve been up to during the Christmas holidays 🙂 Christmas itself was rather quiet: I spent some relaxing days with my bf and family in Salzburg, before we headed off to the mountains of the beautiful Gasteinertal.…

Countryside escape: Schwarzenberg and Bregenzerwald

October 19, 2016
Bregenzerwald Schwarzenberg

This time I virtually wanna take you to Schwarzenberg – truly one of the most beautiful villages I’ve ever seen: The traditional architecture consists of perfectly maintained, wooden houses, most of them several hundred years old! It’s located in an area called Bregenzerwald (named after Bregenz, the provincial capital) in Austria’s westernmost province of Vorarlberg.…
