Expeditions[]

AustrianAlps

Mathilda Grimblehawk in the Austrian Alps

Percival Shacklehorn, a British wizard, went to the Austrian Alps in the hope of capturing a Graphorn.[2] During this expedition, a mountain troll snuck into his tent, and was rendered invisible when it broke a bottle of Invisibility Potion.[2] The Muggle monster hunter Laura Thorn was in the Alps searching for a Yeti at the same time.[2] She also wandered into Shacklehorn's tent, and, along with the mountain troll, was accidentally transported to the Leaky Cauldron in London.[2] Mathilda Grimblehawk and her partner were able to track down the loose mountain troll.[2]

Cities and towns[]

The capital of Austria is Vienna.[1] Paul Stark, a Muggle luggage maker, had a workshop at Erdbergstrasse 35 in this city.[3]

Behind the scenes[]

  • It is very possible that Gellert Grindelwald was born somewhere in the former Austria-Hungary, judging by the fact that Nurmengard is located in Austria and that his given name is of Hungarian origin.
