WATCH VIDEO OF OUR TRIP HERE.
I recently got back from an awesome 9-day trip to Germany and Austria with the Gustavus Adolphus College women’s team. (I am the team’s goalie coach).
We won the three hockey games we played while we were there including a 7-2 victory over the Austrian National Team.
In addition to the games, we had a lot time time to take in the major tourist sites. We took a tour of Munich, Germany and had lunch at the famous Hofbrauhaus restaurant.
From there we moved on to Salzburg, Austria. We toured the city and saw Mozart’s childhood home and various locations where the popular movie “The Sound of Music” was filmed.
After a few days in Salzburg, we bussed to the Mauthausen Concentration Camp near the city of Linz, Austria. It was a very interesting place to see, but spooky experience as our tour took place on a gray and overcast day.
From there, we headed to Vienna, Austria. We checked out a few of the royal palaces and toured the city. This is also where we celebrated New Year’s.
I was a wonderful trip filled with all sorts of memories. The Gusties return to ice in St. Peter on Jan. 11 hosting UW-Stevens Point.
