Advent in Bad Gastein

In the middle of the houses lies a waterfall. Already decades ago the pictures of it went around the world. They made this place world famous with its enchanting charm. Now, in winter, there is snow all around. It seems dreamy. The narrow streets, the old, ornate buildings. Here you almost feel like in another time, in another world.
