An Alp for OAPs...
If you an ageing hillwalker like myself who might have liked to bag an ‘Alp’ but are too long in the tooth to contemplate such an adventure, fear not, there is a simple little Austrian Alp you can bag without too much effort – and you can enjoy a beer straight afterwards! If you ever visit Salzburg (Mozart, The Sound of Music etc), you’ll see a hill right in the heart of town called Kapuzinerberg – a green, protected and peaceful oasis. It is a mere 640m high, and as Salzburg is already at about 400m elevation, you can be up and down in an hour. A path leads directly from town, first up steep steps then through a towering forest. You pass a monument to Mozart and a 17th century friary on the way and there are incredible views of the Alps and Hohensalzburg Castle (which is reminiscent of the fictional ‘Schloss Adler’ in ‘Where Eagles Dare’. The summit is a small woodland clearing with unfortunately restricted views. From town to summit takes about 40 minutes and twenty minutes later you’ll be sipping a large glass of the local Stiegl beer!
