Subject: Re: Vienna
Joan, I agree with Lucy and Linda that there are so many wonderful places to visit in Austria. I'd like to add Hallstatt to the places to consider. It's the "poster town" for Austria--seen on the cover of many guidebooks, etc. and is believed to be the oldest community in Austria. Since it's off the beaten path, it didn't appear to be over- run with tourists at all when we were there (Sept). The setting is spectacular (on a lake surrounded by two huge mountain ranges) and it can be reached by train. The train station is across the lake from the town and boats meet the trains to take you to the town. Angie-in Kansas and enjoying remembering that beautiful place
