  • Salzburg – the best viewpoints in and around the city

    As commented by the UNESCO, “the Salzburg skyline, against a backdrop of mountains, is characterized by its profusion of spires and domes, dominated by the fortress of Hohensalzburg.

If you can understand a bit of German, you probably know that “Bad” in German means “bath”. Thanks to its rich […]

  • Männlichen & the Royal Walk

    Hello everyone! In my last post I wrote about the Mountain Schynige Platte and after it, I continued my journey to Männlichen, which is not a heavily advertised mountain actually, and I only read about it on the SBB website because Sbb has 30% discount for the cable car to and from this mountain. The […]

I’ve been […]
