Salzburg – the city of Mozart

From Munich we are going straight to Austria. Our next stop is Salzburg, the birth town of Mozart. We walk through the narrow streets, when suddenly we see a crowd gathering around the yellow facade of a house. This is the place, where the famous composer was born. We “fight” with the other tourists for a space to take a picture. Salzburg’s atmosphere is amazing and captivating. While exploring the city our attention is drawn to numerous pubs and restaurants tempting guests with traditional dishes. We stop and test jause – delicious cold meat and cheese served on wooden board. This of course has to go together with a pint of cold Austrian beer.

Refreshed we climb to the fortress Hohensalzburg, originating from the 11th century. This is one of the largest medieval fortresses in Europe and at the same time the hallmark of the city. From the top we overlook the magnificent panorama of the old town, one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, divided by the river Salzach.

Salzburg also has a lot more to offer: numerous museums, historic churches and houses, charming palaces with gardens and plenty of places where you can hear concerts of Mozart music. Unfortunately we did not have enough time to do the latter because of our lack of time. Two days just are not enough to experience the attractions of this special town. Perhaps this is a good reason to return here in the future?
