    100 große Gipfelziele

    Normalwege und alternative Routen

    by Neuhold, Thomas

    From the Höllengebirge to the Nockberge, from the Wilder Kaiser to the Dachstein, from the Glockner Group to the Lower Tauern, from the Kitzbühel Alps to the Watzmann – Salzburg Alpinist and writer Thomas Neuhold devotes his latest mountain book to the main peaks of the various mountain groups. With over 200 pages, this selective guide introduces the entire élite of the Alpine peaks in the region. Thomas Neuhold describes the customary routes to these destinations. Technical challenges range from the simple mountain hike, through medium glacier tours, up to grade II (without ropes). A must-have for mountain hikers and classic mountaineers. Thoroughly familiar with the area, Neuhold offers a whole variety of alternative routes and additional suggestions, so that this guide contains some 200 ascents in the Austrian Alps, including a few real rarities. For every tour there are sketch-maps, photos, advice on equipment and information on Alpine huts and mountain inns, and how to get to the starting-point.

    Ab Hof

    Eine kulinarische Reise zu Österreichs Kleinversorgern

    by Zauner, Manuel

    Diversity in practice: Austria's farms and market gardens offer a wide range of produce. Manuel Zauner made a culinary journey through Austria in search of hidden treasures. He portrays one farm for each item of food, talking to the producers to find out why the diversity in our fields and stalls is now under threat. Together with Alexander Rieder, familiar from the media, he presents from each farm or garden five ideas for recipes, prepared, cooked and photographed on site. Ab Hof is intended to encourage readers to visit such smallholdings in their own area. The 60 recipes demonstrate exciting experiments with the incredible diversity of foodstuffs to be found on sale only from small suppliers. Interesting stories, fantastic recipes, mouth-watering photos!

    Das Sternbräu

    Die Geschichte eines Salzburger Brau- und Gasthauses

    by Ammerer, Gerhard; Waitzbauer, Harald

    Taking the Sternbräu as an example, this copiously illustrated volume describes the history of the catering industry in Salzburg through the ages. The authors give an account of moments of glory and disastrous bankruptcies; they tell of dances attended by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and trace the history from the first electric lighting in a Salzburg open-air restaurant in 1888, through the development of the Sternbräu into a major restaurant complex in the 20th century. The occasion for this book was the recent extensive reconstruction and renovation, which took almost two years. Since 1 October 2014 the "Stern", as it is known in Salzburg, is resplendent in its brand-new design.

    Die Traun

    by Pfarl, Peter

    Not only does the River Traun pass through a diverse series of landscapes, it also has immense historical significance as the transport route for the treasure of the Habsburg imperial house: salt. Following the course of the river on foot, as author Peter Pfarl did, you can view Celtic settlements, castles, palaces and imperial hunting grounds, visit magnificently appointed churches, and admire the summer residences of the moneyed aristocracy and the villas of erstwhile intellectual giants. The beautiful Traun region has always been a real magnet for artists. Our two photographers also succumbed to the charm of the Traun valley. Let their evocative pictures take you with Peter Pfarl from the source, a waterfall in the rock chamber of the Kammersee, over wide river meadows, deep ravines and along four lakes, all the way to the Danube. These impressive photos reveal the scenic and cultural treasures along the River Traun.

    Europa neu denken II

    Mentalitätsgeschichte der Adria – Neugierde und Konflikt als Betriebsgeheimnis

    by Michael Fischer, Johannes Hahn

    If we are to rethink Europe, we first have to decide which Europe we want. The future does not simply happen by itself, without our involvement. It can only assume its shape as a result of our participation, our knowledge or lack of knowledge, our hopes and fears. The individual contributions are revised versions from two conferences that took place in Trieste. Three problem areas are discussed: The Laboratory Europe, European arts, stories, and languages as well as European living environment and space. An important role is thereby played by the dialectics of origin and future, as well as by the creativity resulting from contradictions and synergies.

    Tradition meets Innovation

    by Mrazek, Florian T.

    50 years of Salzburgring: Built in 1969 at athe same time as the old Österreichring, the high-speed circuit at Salzburg´s gates was often the scene of legendary slipstream duels and highly dramatic battles in the rain. 50 years of Salzburgring also means victories and defeats, triumphs and tragedies, along with plenty of racing passion. But above all else: motor sports at the highest level. The re-issued and revised anniversary edition of “Legend of Salzburgring” has been supplemented with not just the events of the past five years since the publication of the first book. Rather, it deals with the astonishingly diverse present-day racing circuit – and its future in the fast-moving and extremely challenging 21st century. Because as often in its rich history of ups and downs, Salzburgring is once again facing some important strategic decisions on its 50th birthday. Accordingly, “Legend of Salzburgring” is not just a fascinating look back at the past but also a glimpse ahead of how the next 50 years of this race circuit could be.

    Mein Alpe-Adria-Trail

    Time-out statt Burn-out

    by Albenberger, Petra

    Step by step, closer to oneself: In a world driven by speed and pressure to perform, more and more people are proving unable to cope with their living circumstances. The result is depression and burn-out. "How do I get out of this?" Petra Albenberger found the courage simply to pack her bags, take time out and hike from her home in Wals over the Alps and the Grossglockner, through Austria, Slovenia and Italy, right down to the Mediterranean. Countless experiences with people and animals helped her to find the way back to her inner self. A heartening book that can provide an incentive to take the first step, to take courage and make a move – and to be richly rewarded.
