Zell am See, now this was Austria. Sometimes the best trips we have are blind luck. We decided we didn’t want to drive far so we skipped over to a local town for something to eat. It turned out to be the highlight of the trip. A beautiful blue Alpine lake in the shadows of the mountains, a cable cars to the top, a hike through the Alpine forests with an adventure course for kids, pristine emerald rivers, and views that seemed to come right off of of a Sound of Music dust jacket. In addition, the day we visited happened to be “Festival der Jungen Chöre”, where youth choirs serenaded the downtown throughout the afternoon. Found this video of a youth choir performing by the lake from the day of our visit. Pictures below, or see the slideshow with captions.
