Nice afternoon at a lovely lake
24.09.2006 24 °C
"Wolfgangsee" is the name of a beautiful lake, which is located right between the provinces of Oberösterreich (Upper Austria) and Salzburg, about 1 hour drive from Linz.
First we visited the village of "St. Wolfgang", which has become famous as it has been the main location of one of the most successful Austrian movies of the 1960s.
Today many people are visiting this place, and so it's no surprise that in St. Wolfgang plenty of the typical souvenir shops can be found.
However, the clocks you can see in the background of this photo are not really Austrian, but rather typical for south-west Germany. Nonetheless tourists still like to buy them in big numbers.
Later we took some walk along the lake, where you can find many lovely places to rest or to enjoy the view.
Enjoying some more sunshine before autumn will turn cold.
