Starting at freezing temperatures in the rain and still having fun on the motorcycle? Must be an Edelweiss Tour.
Challenging conditions from rain to snowfall as we are re-entering Austria made this last riding day an exceptional experience.
Our day started in a light rain and turned completely to sunshine after we entered Italy.
Unfortunately the rain was faster than our Harley Davidsons and we finished the day after beautiful curves in rain and low temperatures. We did not know, that these temperatures were even getting lower.
Even on a rest day, we could not resist to ride and visited the Nockalmstraße. One of the most famous alpine roads in Austria.
This day startet with bright sunshine and Hallstatt awaited us. After a nice walk at the lake and into the old town, we also visited Stift Admont in Steiermark. After passing the Erzberg, we made it to our Hotel - Schloss Gabelhofen (Castle).

At latest now, all people of Gmunden are awake
Day 2 was unfortunatly a really rainy day- but the life as a motorycycle adventurer includes also rainy ridingdays, thats what raingear is for....
We visited the Eagles Nest (Kehlsteinhaus) and had a very nice lunch in Hallein, before we went over the Postalm-Road to Gmunden. We spent the evening and the dinner right at the lake and enjoyed our again great food.
Our first day takes us across the border to Germany and back into beautiful Austria again. All day long, it is wonderful, curvy roads and we are really lucky with the weather. Our final stop this evening is Salzburg, a melting pot of Austrian culture, where you can find not only the house Mozart was born, but also castles like Mirabell, colourful gardens and the river Salzach, which we will have to cross to get to our dinner in the old town. Centuries of history you just walk through and it feels, like you are entering a different dimension.
