Austrian wildflowers: Alpine gentian and Red Campion
Of course there are some nice wildflowers on the way. I particularly liked the mix of colors here.

The blue flower seems to be an Alpine gentian (hat tip to ochoco).

The pink one may be red campion (Silene dioica).

...a gentian, but precisely which species I don't know; and the pink appears to be a silene, but, again, the species is unidentifiable from this photo. Hope this helps!

Getting it into the gentian family helped my search a lot -- seems to be an Alpine gentian (appropriately enough).
