silvester at lake wolfgangsee (austria)

well, our children are big enough and prefer to spend sylvester with their friend, so the best of all wives + me decided to spend few days at the beautiful lake wolfgangsee in the salzkammergut region of austria. we haven't been here before and just knew the former german chancellor helmut kohl used to spend here his summer holidays every year, so let's give the area a try :-)

even if i was booking very late, we've got a small nice hotel in st. gilgen (sankt gilgen). it looks both from outside and from inside like a gingerbread house, so we feel like hansel and gretel :-)

hansel and gretel. what a decoration at the christmas markets in austria :-)
just bought my first traditional costume for the oktoberfest. the bavarians will not recognize that it is tyrolean, will they? lol
