Day 17: Hopfgarten

Hopfgarten is a little village where I could finish the sightseeing in less than an hour. It had 2 supermarkets, pharmacy, bakery, hair saloon, hardware store, a few restaurants and pubs, that's all.

It was a free day, and we didn't participate in any optional activities. Some people either took mountain bike riding or paragliding or both, but none for us.

There is a waterpark nearby, about half an hour walk, but we decided not to do anything and just laze around. We bought our lunch from a nearby supermarket, sandwiches, fruits, cake, desserts and some drinks, then climbed up a hill nearby to have our own picnic.

Up here, the view was exceptionally beautiful, the traditional houses, the grazing cows with bells on their neck (the ringing bell was like a music to my ear), mountains full of pine trees, and a cool weather, it was the best picnic I ever have.

Pretty houses
