Salzburg is the first stop on our extended Austria-Slovenia holiday.
Best known as where Mozart was born, you can visit his geburtshaus (birthplace) if you’re so inclined. We weren’t so inclined since we had a list of things to see and weather moving in fast!
The highlight of any visit is the Hohensalzburg castle, high above the city. Amazing views in all directions and a very well preserved fortress. Well worth the admission price, and since we’re thrifty we skipped the funicular cable car with it’s fee and took the stairs.
In the evening the drizzle turned to full-on rain and then into a deluge, we were lucky enough to get back to the hotel just before the ducks started swimming in the street.
Off to Lake Bled Slovenia in the morning – swapping big city for Mother Nature!
