Part of my hikingtrip from Amsterdam to Sarajevo, this is the Via Alpina Red Trail through the Austrian Alps.

On the Via Alpina I kept on crossing borders. Germany, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Germany, Austria. The trail follows the mountains and well, nature does not know borders. Borders are often formed by nature, but I could hardly see the differences. So, I “filed” this part under “Austria”, but parts of this traject actually were in Germany.

The Austrian Alps are versatile, the Via Alpina leads you through one National Park after the other. Each mountain range had its own characteristic features. It’s own beauty. I’m not even trying to think of “the most beautiful,” because honestly all of it is worth to explore.
