(Please do move this if it would be better elsewhere...)

There is a whole section in today's Times about the Tyrol, and all the things you can do there, and a bit about the food and so on.

No mention of the CS though (chiz)!

But the picture on the front page is looking across Pertisau from the top of the KarwendelBahn over the Achensee. :D The middle pages have a picture of the Achensee with the RofanSeilBahn, and the AirRofan is at the 'Sonnalpe'. There is also a mention of Pertisau and the Achensee on page 2 when it talks about the Steinöl museum. I suppose the Achensee doesn't feature any more than that because it's a peaceful sort of place and there aren't a huge number of terrifying outdoor activities there, and that seems to be the main focus of the supplement, when it's not extolling the virtues of Innsbruck. There's a nice picture of the MariaThereseinStrasse on page 3, but they failed to include one of the Golden Roof, despite writing an article about it!

I did wonder about the picture on the front but I couldn't find a caption to confirm that it was.

It is sadly lacking in captions for most of its pictures!! But I know that one because I've stood there and taken a similar picture on several occasions. :D

ETA link to photograph.

Ah the one time I was there I don't think we made it high enough up to look down across the lake :P

Not at all unobservant - there's no caption on that picture, and if you haven't been to that place you've no reason to recognise it. I think (and I could well be completely wrong!) that the front page picture is one from Austrian/Tirolean/Pertisau tourist board. I'm almost sure I've seen it in a brochure somewhere.

I wish they had put captions on all of the pictures - I'd love to know where the lake on the centre pages is. Does anybody else recognise it?

You could try getting in touch with the paper and asking? Hey, you never know, if you word your email nicely, and it's a quiet news day they might do a follow-up piece on a particular group with an interest in the Tyrol :wink:

Thanks for the link to the picture, Lottie. There's a similar one amongst my honeymoon photos, and it took me back to looking over the Achensee from the Baerenbad Alm! A good memory to evoke on a rainy Monday!

Join the club, Smile. :roll: When I was going through all my teaching stuff three years ago, when I retired, with the intention of throwing most of it away, I found a huge A3 image of exactly that same scene that Lottie has just shown us. It had been there for years, even had Geography work sheets on the back, and I had never realised that was the scene for the CS. Didn't realise until I found the board just where these places were! Needless to say, that is one picture I have not thrown out. :lol:

I couldn't see it on the timesonline website when I looked - you might be able to find it in a library?
