we decided to take the scenic route from vienna to nuremburg. good move.
somehow (we missed a turn-off somewhere) we ended up on some tiny backroads through spectacular landscape on our way to the little fairytale village of hallstatt.
hallstatt was just as charming and lovely as can be, perched on its mountain lake. sooo quiet and peaceful and crisp in the cold winter air. there was a little bit of snow on the ground outside the main village, which delighted us.
and more frosty roads with mountain views at sunset on our way up to germany were a perfect kiss goodnight. we got to the epic nuremburg christkindlesmarkt about 7:30…pictures of that magic and more coming next!
love you, austria!
