Salzburg mit Kindern

Salzburg with kids – the city of Mozart

The city of Mozart has many outdoor playgrounds with great views of the city. The city hills are perfect for ball games and other outdoor activities and are easy to get to with a buggy. A nice walk or a romp in nature – the Mönchsberg mountain, the Kapuzinerberg mountain or the big parks (Mirabell, Hellbrunn, Volksgarten) offer interesting sights as well as children’s playgrounds that are great fun.

Street Food Wien

Best Street Food Markets Vienna

Some time ago, Street Food markets also have established in Austria. Previously, there were food trucks and other sales stalls even before, but they only have a supporting role at events. The concept is simple and comes from Asia: Different dishes are prepared in front of the customer. There are mobile stalls (like foodtrucks) on public areas, where the food is made and sold. The dishes are mainly fingerfood and can be eaten without cutlery therefore ideal for „to go“.

The Art of Building Skis in Austria

The Art of Building Skis in Austria

I remember very well the first pair of new skis I ever got. They were definitely the best present under the Christmas tree that year. And once I’d tried them on, I certainly did not want to take them off. So I skied across the carpet in our living room the whole evening, dreaming of snowy days to come.

Night in White – An Austrian Igloo Adventure

Night in White – An Austrian Igloo Adventure

It is a Saturday like no other: my friends and I have decided to do something different this weekend. Instead of a boozy night out in Vienna, we’ve signed up for an igloo building workshop, to spend the weekend in the mountains just an hour outside of Austria’s capital and reconnect with nature. The workshop, conducted by the Austrian Alpine Club, is one of their weekend winter seminars.
