Puch Magazine - Stories from Salzburg

Grias Di! I don’t work for the Puch Tourist Office, but I do live here in town with my family – in beautiful St. Jakob am Thurn to be precise. I’m often out and about here with my camera. I love to hike through the forests and participate in various events in Puch.

You can find my snapshots from in and around Puch on Instagram at @visitpuch. If you have questions, simply get in touch with me by E-mail ! Enjoy reading my stories!
