Obreder, you'll get a bird's eye view of one of the most famous of these churches:  Rektoratskirche.  Also known as St. Charles Church, the landmark was commissioned in 1713 by the Holy Roman Emperor Charles VI.  It was completed over two decades later, in 1737.

Salzkammergut is a region in north central Austria (east of the city of Salzburg) that is renowned for its lake and mountain scenery. Lake Fuschl, seen in this drone video by pilot Funk Design, is one of these glacial lakes. Flying the DJI Mavic 2 Pro, our pilot takes us through the lakeside in fall when the leaves have turned but the water is still fresh and open. The historic buildings, combined with the surround mountains and crystal clear lake water make for an incredibly beautiful spot to fly.
