A small town of chalets and flowers in the Austrian Alps, Hintertal

Hintertal is a small village in Austria near to Dienten, the place where we had our hotel. We call it a flower town, everywhere you see chalets decorated with flowers and nice gardens. Above 2500 metres there is still some snow and together with the rainwater coming from the solid alp mountains causes wild water streams or running creeks. This day it was rather fogy which gave me the opportunity to take pictures of flower fields with half visible mountains in the background. The ski lift was closed today but occasionally works during the summer to bring hikers to the top. These days are always announced in advance.

Hintertal is een klein dorpje in Oostenrijk dicht bij Dienten, de plaats waar we ons hotel hadden. Wij noemen het een bloemendorp, overal zie je chalets versierd met bloemen en prachtige tuinen. Boven de 2500 meter ligt er nog wat sneeuw en samen met het regenwater dat van de rotsachtige bergen naar beneden stroomt, krijg je wilde riviertjes en beekjes. Het was een mistige dag wat mij de mogelijk gaf foto’s te maken van bloemvelden met half verborgen bergen op de achtergrond. De skilift was gesloten maar af en toe is deze geopend gedurende de zomer om wandelaars naar de top van de bergen te brengen. Deze dagen worden altijd vooraf aangekondigd..

  4. Veel bloemen voor hun huizen hebben ze altijd, dat hoort gewoon bij Oostenrijk en draagt bij aan de gezelligheid. Ik was slechts 1 keer in Oostenrijk in de maand Augustus voor ...tig jaren en toen heeft het 4 dagen gesneeuwd, Iets wat je in Augustus niet verwacht. De twee foto's met de wilde bloemen zijn zo leuk. Ik wens jullie een fijn weekend, Dietmut

    (Ja, Filip de foto's heb ik van een brug gemaakt, maar ik ben op de brug van standplaats veranderd). Deze rangeerstation is inderdaad heel groot en zal nog groter worden)

  11. Filip I absolutely LOVE your photos of this lovely village. I totally love the mountains and you have certainly captured the essense of these mountains. I am going on a trip to the mountains next week.. the Rockies in Colorado. Trying to get away from the heat in texas a bit... This looks though like such a lovely village

  18. Yet another beautiful area in the Alps. I like how the houses are all decorated with flowers on the balconies. The bank is rather big for this small village, but perhaps it receives a large number of visitors during the busy ski season.
