Sehr Empfehlenswert
Uns allen 4 Personen hat die Wanderung im Salzkammergut sehr gut gefallen. Die Touren waren sehr abwechslungsreich und auch für Schwimmbegeisterte wie wir, ideal! Einzig eine Wanderkarte im gesamtmaterial haben wir vermisst, obschon die Touren ja bildlich hervorragend beschrieben sind, wie auch die Sehenswürdigkeiten. Daumen hoch und das machen wir wieder!! Herzlichen Dank!!!
