    Salzburg

    May 1 in Austria

    Am 1. Mai Feiertag haben Alisa und ich einen Tagesausflug nach Salzburg gemacht! Wir fuhren knappe 2 Stunden mit dem Zug und haben dann einen wunderschönen Tag verbracht! Wir waren auf der Festung Hohensalzburg, sind durch die Innenstadt geschlendert und haben Pause gemacht im Mirabellenpark🌷

    Untersberg

    February 25 in Austria

    Auf 1776m Höhe und bei -16Grad haben wir uns aufgemacht den Untersberg zu erkunden.
    Wir hatten eine tolle Aussicht oben aber nach 2h haben wir die Temperaturen nicht mehr ausgehalten und sind zum Schloss Hellbrunn gefahren. Das Schloss öffnet leider erst im März, daher konnten wir nur den Schlosspark besichtigen.
    Heute Abend haben wir ein Mozart Dinner Concert gebucht. Wir bekommen typisches Essen aus dem 17. Jahrhundert serviert und dazu hören wir die besten Stücke von Mozart 😍Read more

    Destination Salzburg

    June 1 in Austria

    Another train trip this time to Salzburg. As we are now accustomed with the operation of the U this should be pretty easy. We quickly arrive at the correct train station. Our problem this time is finding where to purchase tickets. After going to 2 different ticket offices we are told to purchase off the train. At the train they tell us to go to the tobacconist as it is €8 cheaper. That’s not very intuitive, we make it on board with about 5 mins to go. Little to close for my liking.

    The train is very comfortable, food is served on board but it is very full and we find ourselves scattered through the train. Not a bad thing to have some space sometimes.

    A 2.5 hr trip when we find ourselves in beautiful Salzburg. It is not far to our hostel for 2 nights. Salzburg is clearly more expensive than Vienna. A 4 bed private room with ensuite costs €34 /person.

    Salzburg

    July 10 in Austria

    The hills are alive with the sound of music! La la la la! If I were to describe Salzburg in 2 sentences those two would be it! However, we didn’t begin our trip to Salzburg with music or even something Austrian. We began our trip by going an Irish pub to watch the semifinal World Cup match between Belgium and France. Sadly Belgium lost the match, but at least I got some cider and pizza! The next morning we started the day doing the most touristy thing anyone can do in Salzburg, a sound of music bike tour! The tour by Fräulein Maria’s Bicycle Tours was phenomenal. The beginning of the tour got a little into the “Re a drop from golden sun” line from the do-re-mi song, but the rain cleared up quickly! We biked to many different locations where they shot the movie such as the abbey, the gardens, the house, and the gazebo. We also got to enjoy a tasty chocolate covered pretzel along the way. Our tour guide even gave us a concert of him playing Edelweiss on flute which was great. We sang along to the Sound of Music soundtrack which played during our bike ride. It was a great and fun way to see the beautiful city. Sadly Mom fell twice off her bike and Dad fell once. I’m definitely the biker of the family. Maybe they just need to get a few beer bikes in the become experts. After our tour was done we went to an apple strudel and Salzburg Nockerl cooking class. The first thing we did in the class was make our apple strudel. It was relaxing to see the dough get pulled and we nailed it! Our instructor said that ours was perfect which I would agree with after looking around seeing how all the other groups had holes in theirs and ours didn’t. The guide made a treble clef out of dough to distinguish our strudel which felt fitting after our sound of music tour. Next we made the Salzburg Nockerl which is a traditional soufflé type dessert from Salzburg which is supposed to look like the 3 mountains of Salzburg. Each of us made a mountain out of egg whites, egg yolk, and sugar and then formed our peak. Dads turned out the best and mine the worst. I guess after listening to the nun sings climb every mountain earlier in the day I decided might as well make the climbing easier on myself with an easier climb. While the desserts were baking we enjoyed some tasty goulash. When the desserts were done we ate them and both were great but all of us preferred the Salzburg Nockerl. After the cooking class we walked around old town a bit more before heading out and saying “So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye” to Salzburg.Read more
