    Nature and All Its Wonders

    There’s that one point of focus when you visit St. Johann in Tirol: The Wilder Kaiser mountain, with its jagged rock crown jutting into the bright blue sky. It watches over you as you explore the quaint, cobblestoned alleys of St. Johann; it chaperones you on your hike through meadows specked with colourful flowers and resting cows; it beckons you to come hither and go higher.

    And even on those days where it’s hidden behind a shroud of clouds, or when you follow an icy stream deep into a gorge and lose sight of it, you know it’s there – the ancient “wild emperor” standing guard.
