Being apart of these big Adventures is such a privilege! Today, Day 4, was our most active day so far. The views we had from our highest elevation were amazing. We went to Austria into the Alps to climb the Ice Caves. These caves were discovered in 1910. It's 700 steps up to the top of the Ice and 700 steps down. This is now an attraction that you can take a guided tour through. We had a private tour before all the bigger groups started to come through.
Lunch was at the top of this mountain called the Oedl House. They served delicious German dishes that are traditionally served at their Sunday meals. It was delicious. Germany has impressed me with their amazing cuisine so far!
Our last stop of the day was the Hohenwerfen Castle. This castle is in the backdrop in Sound of Music when Maria is teaching the kids Do-Re-Mi. It's placed on a big mountain.
We got to have a private guided tour of the castle. We climed into the clock tower and rang the bell. It was pretty high and very windy! This castle is known for their Falcon show. These birds took flight and would return to their trainers on command. There was anywhere from 1 to 4 birds out flying and getting different commands. It was impressive to see these wild animals trained so well.
