Happy Sunday!! I was hoping to get out a quick post about Austria before the Auburn game, but sometimes you just need a lazy Saturday : ) I mentioned in my previous post that we spent a week in an apartment in Seefeld Austria. Almost everyday we used our Eurorail passes to visit somewhere different in Germany. One day, we took the train and visited Salzburg. Salzburg is another city that I enjoyed a lot more than I was expecting. Salzburg was the birthplace of Mozart and also the setting of many parts of The Sound of Music movie.
One of the first places we visited was the Mirabell Palace and its gardens. There was a wedding going on at the time, but we were still able to get some pics.
|Oh yea, we’re bringing back the cargo pants : )|
Next up, we walked over to the old town. The walking bridge had locks on similar to that of the one in Paris.
We walked through Old Town for a bit, then grabbed lunch.
|Getreidegasse is one of the busy shopping streets in the Old Town.|
We also visited the Salzurg Cathedral and toured the inside.
Then we headed to visit the Hohensalzburg castle. But first, Melissa and I had to stop for a pretzel.
|Super soft pretzel filled with vanilla creme and drizzled with chocolate…need I say more?|
Back to the castle. We took a cogwheel train up to the castle, and got to take some pretty pictures.
Leaving the castle, we stumbled upon this little hidden cemetery.
Afterwards, we headed back to Old Town to see what else we could find. There were lots of vendors set up and lots of people out.

That about wraps it up for Salzburg. We headed back to Seefeld for the night to pack up our things. Here is one last pic from Austria.

As always, thanks for stopping by!
