Vienna: Wien Westbahnhof




Wien Westbahnhof (Vienna West station) is a major Austrian railway station, the original starting point of the West railway (Westbahn) and a former terminus of international rail services. In 2015, its role changed with the opening of Vienna's new main station and Westbahnhof now is mainly a commuter station and the terminus of private rail operator WESTbahn's intercity service from Salzburg. Locally, Wien Westbahnhof is served by S-Bahn line S50 and U-Bahn lines U3 and U6. Six tram lines converge on Europaplatz in front of the station, although none go into the city centre. There are also buses to the airport.

Hallstatt: Town Overview






Hallstatt is a small town in the district of Gmunden, in the Austrian state of Upper Austria. Situated between the southwestern shore of Hallstätter See and the steep slopes of the Dachstein massif, the town lies in Salzkammergut region, on the national road linking Salzburg and Graz. Hallstatt is known for its production of salt, dating back to prehistoric times, and gave its name to the Hallstatt culture, the archaeological culture linked to Proto-Celtic and early Celtic people of the Early Iron Age in Europe, c. 800–450 BC. Hallstatt is at the core of the "Hallstatt-Dachstein/Salzkammergut Cultural Landscape" declared as one of the World Heritage Sites in Austria by UNESCO in 1997. It is an area of overtourism.

Absolutely gorgeous pictures!

My family took a trip to Austria in 2000 to visit my maternal grandfather's hometown and relatives, and it is here that I first discovered European urbanism and fell in love with it. Our visits to Vienna, Salzburg, and the tiny village of Mönchhof will forever be etched in my memory. Your pictures of Vienna and the beautiful Austrian landscape are making me fall in love with the country all over again. Keep 'em coming!!!

Many thanks! Indeed, the landscapes of this country look pretty cool. Salzburg is an amazing city and would love to go there in the next trip when the world reopens.
