Rax hike

Another short escape from Vienna lead as to the region of the “Wiener Hausberge” again. We had planned to climb through the Weichtalklamm – a canyon starting in the Höllental which separates the Rax from the Schneeberg, but this route was closed for forest works.

Türkenbund-Lilie – Turk’s cap lily


We decided to climb the Rax instead, which is accessible on many routes from easy to difficult. We took a path called Brandschneide which seemed to lead straight up, but gave us incredible views into the valley and over to Schneeberg, where we had been not long ago.
We could make out the antennas at the top of Schneeberg

It liked my shoe laces for its colour I would guess

Getting tired
