Krimml Waterfalls

I already wanted to visit the Krimml Waterfalls during my trip through Austria last year. However, one and a half hours of driving each way was too much for me.

Fortunately, it was sunny for the first two to three hours, which made my hike into Gschlöß valley a delight. Continue reading A beautiful DecSeptember day in Gschlöß valley
