The Austrian village that's a Muslim holiday hotspot in pictures

Ten years ago, the tourist board of Zell am See in Austria made a terrific call. According to the Quran, paradise looks like a lake surrounded by snow-capped mountains so they started promoting their village to travel agencies in the Middle East.

Now, the area receives 70,000 visitors from the Gulf States every year. Photographer Marieke van der Velden joins the tourists:

Of course, there are some cultural differences - but I don't mind them. Most of the tourists are very friendly and they leave a lot of cash here.

I like the ski-burka! Probably would help with windchill.
