    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🌷

    Salzburg

    August 7, 2017 in Austria

    Salzburg is also famous for being the birthplace of Mozart and the setting for The Sound of Music play and film. We went to a couple of the film locations - the lake; the palace; church (at Mondsee); and the gazebo which has been relocated to the Hellbrunn Palace Park where the Hellbrunn Wasserspiel (the Trick Fountain) is also located. It was fun to remember the movie by visiting where it was made....and there may have been a little singing to accompany the viewings!Read more

    Salzburg

    August 6, 2017 in Austria

    Our journey to Salzburg was via a national park or state forest which was the route chosen by our GPS! Although not planned we enjoyed the scenery, particularly Walchensee or Lake Walchen which is one of the deepest and largest alpine lakes in Germany.
    Salzburg's "Old Town" is internationally renowned for its baroque architecture and is one of the best-preserved city centers north of the Alps. It was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. Everywhere you turned there was an amazing building to photograph.Read more

    'Climbed Every Mountain' again!

    August 7, 2017 in Austria

    Love Salzburg! 3rd time I've been to Salzburg but this time in summer. Took the cable car up the Untersburg then hiked to the top! Views down onto Salzburg beautiful. We also visited lots of 'Sound of Music' highlights. Surprised how many Austrian people here wear the traditional outfits just around town- leidehausen leather shorts and Drindl dresses. Late afternoon took the funicular up to the Palace.Read more

    Salzburg, Austria

    September 25, 2016 in Austria

    It turns out we needed more recovery time than expected after Oktoberfest, as we started battling a cold in Mozart's hometown - Salzburg. We found out the hard way that no pharmacies or grocery stores are open on a Sunday so we had to fight through our colds by taking it easy, but we still managed to enjoy our limited time in this beautiful city. The scenery is unique, nestled in the Alps with a river running through it, buildings carved into the cliffs, a castle overhead and an old wall surrounding the town. They also had a lively atmosphere in the town due to their own Oktoberfest celebration; their culture seemed similar to the Bavarian culture we experienced in Munich, but a smaller town feel.Read more

    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

    Salzburg

    April 5 in Austria

    Salzburg is a magnificent city that has so much to offer. It was impossible to visit all, but we tried our best. Before we got into the city we first visited Red Bull's owner hobby hall in Hangar 7 - his collection of planes and F1 cars is amazing. The following day we started by visiting Hohensalzburg Castle - dating from 1077 - on top of the Festungsberg. After a stop for a Leberkäse, we entered the amazing cathedral and moved on to the pedestrian area - Getreidegasse - where you can see, along with the great international brands, fancy shops to buy a "Dirndl" or a "Lederhosen" - the traditional Austrian clothes. We passed by Mozart's birthplace house and visited the house where he lived till he moved to Vienna. The Mirabell Palace with its incredible gardens were on the way to the so expected Sacher Torte which was the highlight of our afternoon at the Sacher Café in the Sacher Hotel. The day ended with a special dinner at St. Peter Stiftskulinarium restaurant with a Mozart dinner concert - simply splendid!!! Goosebumps come to you when you first start listening to the singers!Read more
