my last trip was to Ebensee, a small town in Upper Austria and Salzkammergut at the end of March 2018. Salzkammergut is a region that is famous for its lakes and mountains. Ebensee is located at Traunsee (a lake with 24,4 qm), the deepest lake in Austria with 191 m (source)!
We arrived on Friday and the weather was really bad, rainy and grey. And I noticed that I had forgotten my DSRL, that is the reason my photos aren’t of the usual quality. I noticed on the highway, it was too late to go back.
On the first day we went to Bad Ischl (Upper Austria), famous for the “Kaiservilla” (of which we only got very bad pictures, due to not having a proper camera and the lights) and Konditorei Zauner (a pastry shop). Bad Ischl is also a spa town and has about 14 000 inhabitants (source).
We parked the car somewhere in the centre and took a walk around, also in hope to find some food.
In the red phone boxes are books, ready to take with you for free! This is a really nice idea and often seen in Austria. It’s also funny to see a red phone box here (in Austria they are grey and yellow)!
These lions are seen all over Bad Ischl and painted in different ways!
This was how the weather looked like. Fortunately the following days were much nicer and we went to some lakes in the sun (see my next posts)!
This was the window of the famous Konditorei Zauner with easter decorations. We went back there after eating, but it was already closed by then. Would have been nice to sit there in the warmth!
We searched for a restaurant online and found “Weinhaus Attwenger” on Tripadvisor To get there we had to walk over this bridge. I really like iron bridges, they look nice (that’s why I took a picture!).
You can still see snow on this picture! Now it’s getting really warm, but this was only a month ago!
The food at the Weinhaus was very good and the prices were reasonable (not the cheapest, but the food was very tasty!).
Hope you enjoyed my little post about Bad Ischl!
