rafting
Rafting in the Mostviertel may be a thrill, but to Rudi Scheiblechner, it’s business as usual Braving the elements armed only with a paddle, every year countless people take the plunge down the playful and turbulent waters of the roaring Salza river in an inflatable raft. “They come back often,” said river guide Rudi Scheiblechner – rafting can be habit-forming.

hiking
Summer heat doesn’t temper Austrians’ appetite for high peaks in the slightest. Many Austrians have never seen The Sound of Music (after all, what does Hollywood know?). And those who have may well reject the picture of a folksy, slightly naïve and somewhat hillbilly people inclined to burst into song at the slightest excuse, that has somehow charmed generations of...

Thrown into the spotlight in 2003 as European Capital of Culture however, the city drew...

And while it felt indulgent dining in three capital cities in one day, don't think it meant rushing from one place to the next. The journeys...
travel farm
Connect with nature while unplugging from city life... but leave enough time to milk the cows We talk about our dream of country life, walking arm in arm down a quiet lane while cattle graze in a field nearby; crossing a babbling brook in the shade of a mighty oak, the aroma of freshly cut hay radiant in the afternoon...
wolfgangsee
During the holiday season, the Wolfgangsee turns into a paradise for lovers of all things Advent With the Christmas season starting earlier each year, it was no surprise that by early December last year my friends and I were already feeling burned out by the conspicuous consumption and forced cheer of the capital. So for St. Nicholas Day, or December...
