If you're not from Lower Austria, you've probably never heard about Lunz am See. And that's totally fine.

Yet, Lunz am See is a beautiful little place near the Austrian Alps, especially known for two things.

First, it's a cold place. Every winter, Austrian radio will mention Lunz am See as the coldest place in Austria.

It has been recorded as the coldest place in Central Europe, as a temperature of −52.6 °C (−62.7 °F) was measured here on 19 February 1932. (source: Wikipedia)

Secondly, Lunz is known for its lake. Lunzer See. While it's a particularly beautiful place during summer time, you can take a stroll through winter as well.

And that's exactly what I did last weekend.
