Until recently, we knew very little about this area in the heart of the Pinzgau, although the Saalachtal has a sensational mountain range waiting to be discovered. So we start our journey of discovery on the famous Lofer Almenwelt.
Due to Corona restrictions we had a lot of time to explore our own – extremly beautiful -country. Here you’ll find some of the most impressive places you should have seen in Austria, recommended by passionate travellers and bloggers.
