Markets In Everything: Austrian Mountains

Kinda cool. If I bought it could see opening a watch atelier and brewery there.  ;-) (AFP/File, Christof Stache)

AFP: Two mountain peaks going cheap in Austria: “VIENNA — Are you the outdoors type, a die-hard hill walker with cash to spare? Then you won’t want to miss out on the chance to buy your very own mountain peaks in the Austrian Alps. Two 2,000-metre (6,500-feet) mountain peaks in eastern Tyrol — the ‘Grosse Kinigat’ and the ‘Rosskopf’ — are up for sale for just 121,000 euros ($175,800) for the pair. On its website, Austria’s federal real estate company, the Bundesimmobiliengesellschaft or BIG, proudly boasts that the two peaks offer the ‘most stunning views of the Carnic Alps and are popular destinations for mountain climbers and hikers’. Nevertheless, the decision to put them up for sale has angered locals.”
