well, on the 3rd day of our wolfgangsee / austria trip on the way back we have visited the predigtstuhl mountain by world's oldest cable car still active in original state (predigtstuhlbahn from 1928) and after that walked around in bad reichenhall, the poor sister of its austrian salt mining cousin salzburg ...
