Hochschwab, Austria | Aug 2019

Aktualisiert: 31. Okt 2020

Late summer 2019, a friend and me used two sunny days to hike up the Hochschwab (2277m). We enjoyed a stunning mountainous scenery and also a few good birds. The whole trip was made by public transport, which was pretty straight forward from Vienna by train and bus (and a little hitchhicking on the way back).
