London, Paris and Rome have their own charm, but it’s always a good idea to sidestep once in a while, to explore the European villages. They’re untouched by tourists and frozen in time. On our recent trip to Hallstatt from Salzburg, we accidently happened to visit an Austrian village, Obertraun. The place oozes postcard perfect landscapes - the rolling green hills, Alpine meadows, traditional Bavarian houses make you want to sing out loud. This place was magical, and we left a little piece of our heart there.
How to get there:
Take a train from Salzburg Hbf station to Attnang-Puchheim and then change the platform to take a train to Obertraun Dachsteinhöhlen Bahnhof. It takes about 2h 11m to get from Salzburg to Obertraun, including transfers. You can buy tickets online or buy through vending machines at the train station.
