Ötscher, Austria

1 August 2019

From the village of Lackenhof up and down the Ötscher. Beautiful day, beautiful hike.

A view of the Kleiner Ötscher, where I was yesterday.

Close to the top.

Amazing views from the top.

Then back down again.

A view back to where I had been.

And a panorama from halfway up.

Remarks There is a chairlift going up about halfway, which means the trail to the top is quite crowded on a nice day. Probably better to come here just after the summer.
