I’ve been visiting the Salzkammergut region for 5 or 6 years now, always parking myself in Bad Ischl, and using that town as a base. One of my end-of-holiday treats is a walk around Gosausee (Lake Gos...
A breathtakingly beautiful lake, largely due to the spectacular mountain landscape surrounding it. The mountains to the south of the lake are particularly unique – as if they could be from an alien pl...
Hiking the Upper Austrian lakes and on a clear, September day we decided to hike the Vorderer and the Hinterer. The trails are well marked and an easy walk/stroll. The lakes are clear and with no wi...
This is one of the most beautiful views I have seen in Austria (and I have seen a good few!) A trip up the cable car is a must, only takes 4 minutes and there are some lovely mountain huts at the top...
Lake Gosau is the highest alpine lake in Austria (933 m). It is located in the Gaosakam Valley. Its background is the Dachstein peak at 2,995 meters above sea level. It is the highest mountain in central Austria. It is said that every sunset, the residual sunset scatters a trace of glory to the top, like a burning flame, which is the "flame of the Alps" that makes the Austrians proud. There are three lakes in the
Goshao Lake, namely the Qianhu Lake, the Xiaohu Lake and the Houhu Lake. You can reach the Qianhu Lake by yourself, and the Xiaohu and Houhu Lakes are hidden in the mountains and can only be reached on foot.
The last lake in this trip is rainy. It was decided to come to Gosau because it had the reputation of "the flame of the Alps", and it was a wonderful view of the evening sun reflected in the mirror-like lake. Somehow, this description is particularly fascinating, and I simply took my soul away, so I immediately took the board and joined the itinerary. However, this cold cold rain completely extinguished the possibility of flame burning, and our Gosau Lake is still misty. The reason for the
weather does not support us on foot. We enjoyed the view of the lake in front of Gosau Lake on the big platform such as the hotel entrance. The Dachstein peak was covered by the clouds, and it feels like the lake on Kings Lake. I don't know how beautiful it is when the weather is fine. The uninhabited Gosau Lake has a special kind of tranquility, like a mist, like a picturesque flower. The lake in the rainy days still has a place to touch us. The layered landscape is like a vertical landscape painting. On the occasion of leaving, I want to make a good collection. Some people say that it is especially like Switzerland. It is true that Germany, Austria and Switzerland are bordered by the three countries. It is normal to have similar landscapes in the vicinity of the land boundary.
Bad Ischl | Finding a stable
Bad Isch was not in my plan, because the rain did not go on Lake Gosau, so I decided to come here to see more time. The reason why Bad Ischl was famous was that in 1849, Franz Joseph chose to establish a summer palace here. On August 19, 1853, Franz Joseph and Princess Sissi held an engagement ceremony. In 1854, the emperor's mother, Sophie, gave him the emperor's villa as a wedding gift. The villa became the summer residence of the royal family. What really attracted me to come here is the call from a picture.
There was a photo of the light on the side of Lake Bad Ischl on the Internet. It was just a glimpse, but it impressed me.
Tired, patronize Franz's favorite store of the year, most of the guests are locals. Still order my favorite latte and chocolate-flavored cake. For things I like, I am stubborn and always reluctant to change and try. Coffee only drinks latte, tea only drinks black tea, and the cake only has chocolate flavor.
Gossau | Lost in the world of wonderland
Gosau Lake has three lakes, namely the Vorderer Gosausee, the Gosaulacke and the Hintere Gosausee. Cars can reach the former lake, and the small lake and the back lake are hidden in the mountains. In addition to the hikers, the mountain here is also a famous rock climbing place, while the Gosau Lake also attracts many diving enthusiasts. If the weather is good, Lake Gosau is a good angle to watch the "Alpine torch" Daschsten peak. It takes about 4-5 hours to walk back to Houhu.
After eating a harmonious breakfast, I went on a trip to Gosau Lake with everyone. A 15-minute drive, a corner followed by a corner, and the heart of the Gosau Lake has been yy countless times. In particular, the Taiwanese aunt told me that going to Gosau Lake in the past two days was simply to contract the entire lake, and there were very few people. Although I have positioned Gosau Lake as a place to saut chicken, but when I really stood in front of it, I was shocked to not, this is simply a fairyland lost in the world.
