Sophienalpe, Austria

27 April 2019

Wandering through the Wiener Wald, to the Sophienalpe.

Starting in the Pötzleinsdorfer Schlosspark.

Then through the Schwarzenbergpark, with the tomb of Graf Lacy.

Found a little friend along the way.

Then up to Hameau, an 18th century "recreation village" in the forest, of which only one building is still standing.

And finally arriving at the Sophienalpe, with nice views.

Down again on the other side.

And finally along the Halterbach before ending up in the outskirts of Vienna again.

A panoramic view of the Sophienalpe.
