Walking in the Alps, Bürglalm from the village of Dienten

We were very lucky with the weather on our Austria trip in Dienten. The sun was shining and we had clear views on the mountains. The first little hike we write about is possible for people of all ages, it is very easy. You take the Bürglalmbahn, a four chair elevator in Dienten, up to an altitude of 1652 metres. Arriving at the top, you walk to the right towards the Bürglalm, a 15 minutes walk. From the chalet terrace you enjoy the view with a beer and a snack. I am particularly happy with my picture of the cow approaching the drink area with the Hochkönig mountain in the background.

We hadden veel geluk met het weer gedurende ons Oostenrijkse vakantie in Dienten. De zon straalde en we hadden een open zicht op de bergen. Onze eerste wandeling waarover we schrijven is gemakkelijk en mogelijk voor mensen van alle leeftijden. Je neemt de stoeltjeslift Bürglalmbahn in Dienten en deze brengt je tot op een hoogte van 1652 meter. Bij aankomst ga je naar rechts richting Bürglalm, een wandeling van ongeveer 15 minuten. Van op het terras aan een mooi chalet, samen met een biertje of snack, kan je genieten van het uitzicht. Ik ben zeer blij met mijn foto van een bergkoe die een drinkbak benadert met op de achtergrond de Hochkönig berg..

  25. So beautiful it makes me wish I was there for the beer and snack looking out at this awesome scenery. I also really like the perspective that you have captured of this first cow... looking at you in such a bovine manner. All she needs is a huge cowbell!
