Photo Gallery for Austria and Switzerland, 2017

This is the charmingest place we have ever lived in, for repose, & restfulness, & superb scenery whose beauty undergoes a perpetual processional change from one miracle to another, yet never runs short of fresh surprises & new inventions. We shall always come here for the summers if we can.

― Mark Twain in a letter to Joseph Twichell from Weggis, Switzerland, 31 July 1897

This summer, the hills were alive with the sound of music… And cowbells and alphorns! The slideshow below shows a selection of pictures from my trip to Austria and Switzerland, including views of Vienna, Hallstatt and the Salzkammergut region, Salzburg, Lucerne, Interlaken and the Bernese Oberland, Montreux, Bern, and Zurich.
