Another month has passed but not much happened in the meantime that is relevant for this blog. I am digesting some private experience, and there is a lot of work to do, so there was no time for hiking since the end of October. I don't even have hiking plans …read more
So another month has passed again!
On one of the last days of October I made a hike in the Südburgenland, from Bad Tatzmannsdorf to Stadtschlaining. Nice hike, nothing spectacular, but that time of year is spectacular even with boring landscapes.
I don't know why, there was nothing special about …read more
Yesterday I visited the really impressive exhibition "Ways of Freedom - Jackson Pollock to Maria Lassnigg" at the Albertina Modern. The exhibition is remarkable for several reasons. First, there are also works of female artists between 1947 and 1970. Second, the curators are demonstrating that Abstract Expressionism is not something that …read more
So I returned from Tenerife two days ago.
I had been on research trips for several weeks alone before, but not really on holidays, and the destinations of those earlier trips were usually cities. Although, this was not really planned as holidays either, but as a photography trip. But I …read more
At the end of August I spent four days in Lunz am See. Excellent holiday destination. However, the trail to the Obersee was closed which I knew before I arrived there. On the first day, I made a walk around the lake. Basically, it was raining all day with breaks …read more
I went for two nice hikes during the past weeks. A few weeks ago I made the classic hike on the Rax. From the technical point of view, it's easy, however, there were several parts where I had to put my camera into my backpack. But it's really ok. A …read more
So I think in the last days of June I made a hike to the March-Auen near Marchegg. Well, as far as I remember, the trouble was that Marchegg and the March-Auen is several kilometers from Marchegg Bahnhof. It's completely flat, there are lots of birds, especially storks, but the …read more
So I have been wandering around during the past weeks...
Yesterday I went to Frankenfels and explored the Taubenbachklamm. But it's not worth the risk and the effort. It's a relatively short hike but it's a bit dangerous - although, there is a plate at the beginning and at the end …read more
So far I walked I think four parts of the Welterbesteig Wachau: the first, from Dürnstein to Krems, some years ago with a group; the second, from Hofarnsdorf to Rossatz, about a year ago; the third, from Dürnstein to Weißenkirchen, about two weeks ago; and the third, from Melk to …read more
First, an addendum to Bruegel's The return of the herd: The key to the interpretation of the painting is probably the fact that the herd is coming down from the Alm too late: the trees have no leaves. In reality, the Almabtrieb happens much earlier - in October or even at …read more
