Austria, Mondsee Guide (B): Mondsee, Austria, by Adrienn Takacs

I couldn’t help but return to one of my favorite countries, Austria, only this time discussing the small-town life instead of the grandiose and busy every-days of a big city. The reason this particular town has grown so close to my heart is because of the magic that is being handed over to any tourist, consisting of a mix of the beautiful little homes with colorful Venetian blinds, the proximity to nature, the fresh air and that unimaginable calm, silence and stillness just flowing in the air. The non-existence of the everyday metropolitan rush just makes you want to forget the world and move there to live a calm and happy life. Now, that’s Mondsee and the feeling it gives to you. It’s priceless and probably hard to imagine. I can talk for hours about it, but you just have to go out there and feel it. Experience it and realize the wonders of this treasure!

Mondsee is a small town in Upper Austria with only a little over 3000 inhabitants, on the shore of the lake with the same name. The name “Mondsee” is of German origin and means “moon’s lake” in English. The Mondsee loch belongs to Austria’s Salzkammergut Lakes region being one of the warmest lakes, reaching up to 27 degrees Celsius in July and August. ......
