You want to have your own mountain? It is possible, and most important it won’t cost you a lot. Just for $175,000 (€121,000), you can buy two mountain peaks in the Austrian Alps, and the only requirement is to keep them open to climbers and hikers.

Bundesimmobiliengesellschaft or BIG, Austria’s federal real estate company has announced the sale of  two peaks, 2,690-metre Grosser Kinigat and 2,600-metre Rosskopf, describing them as the most stunning views of the Carnic Alps and are popular destinations for mountain climbers and hikers.

As expected, the decision to put them up for sale has angered locals. It’s a mystery to me why they’re wanting to sell the peaks right now. In Greece, they’re selling off islands. In Austria, it’s the mountains, the mayor of the village of Kartitsch, Josef Ausserlechner, told Austrian news agency APA.

Interested buyers have until 8 July to place their bids, and 20 people have already done so, according to the regional daily Kleine Zeitung. [AFP]
