the place where Germany meets Austria

by ada

Well, the Hammerauer Brücke isn’t really a place you must see before you die, but I stumbled upon it quite accidentally today, so here it is. Poor Rozi died almost a month ago and I was totally handicapped without a bike, so I hopped over to Germany to buy a new one, because that’s what you do if you live in Salzburg and need something: you hop over to Germany to shop, because Salzburg is the most expensive city in whole Austria. Just in case you were planning to move here, haha.

So I bought my new bike (Rozi, I will always remember you!) and drove it back home to Salzburg. A lazy 14 km tour beside the Saalach in the descending sun with only a minimal time spent with getting lost.

the place where Germany meets Austria

That’s the place called Überfuhr, where the river Saalach joins the river Salzach. They create together a natural border. One side of the river belongs to Germany, the other to Austria.

That’s the Austrian side:

And that’s Germany:

And that’s me, breaking deep into German territory:
