New Cathedral, Linz

The construction of the neo-Gothic cathedral was already initiated in 1855 by F.J. Rudiger, then Bishop of Linz, and the foundation stone was laid in 1862. The building was designed by the Cologne cathedral builder Vinzenz Statz. The cathedral was consecrated in 1924. The height of the tower was limited to 134m (as it was not permitted to surpass St Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna).

Hallstatt

Austria
Hallstatt is a small town overlooking the Hallstätter See (Lake Hallstatt) in the Salzkammergut, in the federal states Upper Austria of Austria.

Personal note

Hallstatt in Austria is something out of a dream.

... the hiking is wonderful. I went off on my own into alpine forests.

...and there is plenty of nature to see.

.. and finally the people were awesome...

I lost my wallet here. When retracing my steps, the nice lady in the supermarket told me a wallet had been handed in to City Hall by a young child. The lady took me there and all 100+ euros, credit cards and driving license were still in there.

Hallstatt gets overwhelmed (ruined?) by day trippers. Don't do that. Stay the night and explore the neighbouring mountains and give this beautiful place the time it deserves.

What's on your mind?
