Austrian word of the Week – Hatscher
Hatscher: of course the the Alpine country of Edelweiss and happy cows crazing around the verdant slopes of the Almhütten has a ranting term for a really really super long hike or walk – and that is a Hatscher.
The Annapurna Circuit pictured here was quite the Hatscher – three weeks long but well worth the hike.
Delve more into the Austrian creative side with their rant words: “Der Kleine Wappler” by Astrid Wintersberger, Residenz Verlag — book is completely in Austrian language.
