Austria | Taking the Gerlos Alpine Pass to Camping Aufenfeld
It seems almost impossible to take a road trip without stumbling upon yet another wonderfully scenic journey in Austria…. a country we’ve enjoyed visiting, especially our time in Vienna. So where better than an Alpine Pass to remember!!
So much to experience?
There’s plenty to experience enroute (click here for more) and excellent parking opportunities too. At 1,630 m, the High Tauern can be seen to the south and the Kitzbühel Alps to the north. Families with children will love the playground with it’s observation tower and an opportunity to let off steam in fresh mountain air! Or even just enjoy the panoramic view point below that offers spectacular views up/down the valley from your picnic lunch table. But if you visit one thing, spare some time to see Europe’s largest waterfall (380m high) at Krimml.. you can even walk up the three cataracts towards the thunderous noise above you (see above picture)
Incomparable Alpine Beauty
It was fast becoming apparent that Cordoba’s religious history is as rich as its vibrant culture. So where better to see a different side to Cordoba than the Juderia. A labyrinth of small street with bars, shops and museums! A truly wonderful, wonderful place to spend 2 hours!!
We took in the Jewish Synagogue and also the Inquistador museum… a real eye opener for the girls! It is truly terrible how much the Jews were persecuted….
Rather than launching into guide book territory…. here’s a great link to find out more about Religion and Cordoba….. but rest assured that if you have kids willing to learn about oppression, suppression and religious tolerance… Cordoba is definitely the place to take them!
It proved a brilliant success as it took us straight into our next stay at Leading Camping’s‘Camping Aufenfeld‘… with hopefully the chance to revisit the Stubai Glacier again tomorrow!
