New on 500px : Neuschwanstein Castle by davidhendershot2012 by davidhendershot2012

Probably the most beautiful castle you will ever see. Nestled deep in Bavaria on the Alps dividing Germany and Austria, this is the most stunning location for a truly majestic piece of architecture. You have to go see it in person!

New on 500px : Hallstatt – The Pearl of Austria by jitichadha by jitichadha

Hallstatt, overlooking the Hallstätter See (Lake Hallstatt) in Upper Austria, is considered to be the oldest still-inhabited village in Europe and is now a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Salt mining was being done here as early as the 2nd millennium BC and it was the site of an early Iron Age culture from 800 to 400 BC, which is known as the Hallstatt Era. Some of the earliest archaeological evidence for the Celts was found in Hallstatt.

Besides its history, many consider it as one of the most beautiful places in the world.

The Waldviertel is the northwestern part of the Austrian state of Lower Austria. Climatically it is one of the coldest regions of Austria. Nevertheless, it is a very simple and lovable area with excellent cuisine, friendly people and very good value for money.
