We headed off to see Zell am See, a lakeside resort town. It was very pretty, with typically Tyrolean-looking painted buildings. The tourist shops in town were selling all sorts of lovely things painted in Bauernmalerei style which I would have loved to have bought, but unfortunately wouldn't have been able to fit in our suitcase!

Sadly, the parish church was closed for renovations, so we were unable to see the 45 skulls and 12 bones of minor saints which now rest on embroidered cushions.
