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.
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.
