I have just been re reading my blog posts about this year's holiday and found that there are some serious gaps so I intend to catchup over the Christmas break if that is possible.

After our lovely week in St Wolfgang we moved on to Salzburg. We stayed in a great apartment on a very old "street" just across the river on the edge of the Old Town.

 The back wall of the apartment was the wall of the cliff behind it.

On this side of the river we could walk to the Mirabel Gardens where many parts of The sound of music were filmed - like this famous Pegasus Fountain.

There are quite a few foot bridges across the river and there are lots of winding old streets to explore.

   and of course the obligatory beautiful church.

On the far side of the Old Town the Fortress towers above protecting the town below.

 You can walk up to the top but the funicular is always a great option.

 Once up there the size of this structure is quite amazing.

 and the views down onto the city below are amazing

in all directions.

A rest stop is always a good idea when you can sit and soak it all up.



  1. I've been here too although the thing I remember most about it was the speciality Saltzberger Nockerl (check it out on Google!) delicious!

  2. We missed Nockerl I'm afraid Jane, but enjoyed the visit. Happy New Year to you and Dave.
