Jodelling in Wien

September 18, 2022

I’m visiting friends from the trail in Italy. What do they do for entertainment? They sing, and they walk, sometimes at the same time.

Vienna Woods walk

We met at 10 on Saturday morning and walked up a mountain, stopping to sing every few minutes.

Songbook for Jodlers

I stood next to Gerhardt, who sang bass, and followed his lead. On the fourth rendition of one piece I finally got it right, and was complimented by Gerhardt and the director (who also created the songbook).

Berghuette (mountain hut)

We climbed to the top of a mountain and had lunch in a cozy mountain hut. It is run by volunteers, and the food was fabulous!


Then we climb to the top of another peak and went up a watchtower to see the view of Vienna.

We had dessert and coffee at the second hut. I had a classic crepe, although the menu item was in German and I had no idea what to expect. Again, fabulous!

These mountain huts are accessible by trails and don’t have a parking lot. Our walk was 5 1/2 miles and 1200 feet of up.

    Please lipsinc, I have heard you sing….. 😂

    • I got a few notes right but the words were in German and the only one which was easy was “d’ri d’ri d’ri”
