Well spent 15th marriage anniversary in Austria..

Sledging, a visit to Ehrenberg Castle and Thermal spa!

For me, whenever and whatever I plan ahead doesn’t really work. Though it was our 15th anniversary we hadn’t planned anything ahead. Suddenly, the previous night we though of going to Austria for sledging and to enjoy our last snow (soon we will be going back home). Then the next day on our way back visitied a castle and soaked ourselves in thermal spa.

We parked our car in a designated parking spot which was free! Then took a train (U bahn) which is again free!! From there we bought a day ticket to the cable car for multiple trips. There are few shops were we can rent all kinds of snow sport stuff. There are many snow sports that you can do, specially for kids.

Ours sledging track was about 4 kms. It was scary for the first time as I didn’t know how to control the speed. Later once I self-learnt to control, it was so much fun. We spent rest of our day there.

Next day while heading back to Stuttgart near Reutte we saw a long suspended bridge and a castle which looked interesting so we decided to check that out. It is Ehrenberg Castle which is 700 year old  and the view from the highline is quite captivating. We have to buy the ticket to the bridge bit for the castle its free.

do you notice the highline?

It is around 235 kms drive from Stuttgart where one can also make a day trip. We spent few hours there and headed to a Thermal spa which was awesome and relaxing. We returned to Stuttgart the same day.
