    My town called Ried im Innkreis is in Upper Austria in the middle between Linz and Salzburg. It is easy to reach by train, three hours from Vienna, 1 hour from LInz, 1 hour from Salzburg, two hours from Munich. The surroundings of Ried is a beautiful green area with many farms, wood, meadows and little villages. You have the possibility to go hiking, biking, swimming in Ried or in Therme Geinberg.
