Welcome to Alps and Lakes, the tour that brushes right up against the great beauty and diversity that halmarks central Europe: stunning scenery, thousands of years of cultural diversity, highly modern society and technology co-existing with cherished traditional customs, great food, great roads, great motorcycling and great company. Follow us as we discover Salzburg, folow the ancient salt-trade-route along the river Traun and cross the highest alpine pass of Austria! The many waterways that make this region so fertile and quaint are also footprints of a civilization dating back to the pleistocene age.
On the way from Gerlos Pass we encountered a little road-blockage! They call it an "Alm-Abtrieb" and it is the fall tradition of bringing the cattle from the high mountain pastures down into the valley to their winter dwellings. Here is a little impression on Video: Video-Almabtrieb (mary)
