Do you ever just crave snow? It's the middle of July in Austria, and you decide you want to have a snowball fight, where do you go? No you don't need to spend a ton of money or go on a vigorous trek, you just need to go to a glacier. One of the best known glaciers in Austria is the Weißsee Gletscher. This has got to be one of my favorite activities over the summer. Let me walk you through a typical day at the glacier. We catch a ride on the comfortable gondola that takes us right on up. If you are feeling super adventurous, feel free to take on the hike. There are tons of trails that lead right on up to the peak. But if you are more like me, slightly lazy this early in the morning, the gondola will take you all the way. Once you have passed the middle station and reached the mountain Berghotel Rudolfshutte
you are officially at Weißsee an at 2.315 meters. Take some time and stroll around the gorgeous blue lake.
