It is interlaced with beauty everywhere you look.
After we finished our bike tour we went up the mountain to the modern museum of art which has a breathtaking view and decided we better eat lunch up there to soak it all in.
Where we took a pretty fascinating audio tour where we learned all about how it was built in 1055 and was so strong that it was never conquered by enemy troops. It was enlarged and enlarged over and over again by different Archbishops and is the largest fully-preserved fortress in central Europe.
Much more on that over here if it interests you.
We all basked in the view from the top.
Such a gorgeous city.
I have a crush on interesting doors.
We had to stop at Mozart’s birth home:
….along with a whole slew of Chinese tourists…see all those cameras up in ready position to get that same shot I got above?
LOVED this main street in the old city.
Check out all the signs sticking out of the buildings.
I loved the “love locks” bridge like in Paris too.
We walked back over to some Sound of Music spots….
…just in time for a Mozart concert in this room where Mozart actually played as a young adolescent:
We were all so mesmerized by the music that we lingered for a while to meet the pianist and violinist.
We all got a little wet in the “trick fountains” (which I don’t have time to write about but it’s a pretty cool story if you want to google it).
Not sure there could ever be a cuter baby to travel with.
Salzburg is easily one of my very favorite cities. It's just perfect. And Mozart kugeln are divine! Miss that place.
Love your adventures! What a wonderful family & Graz Salzburg & Vienna are my favourite European. Destinations, thanks for sharing x
Baby looks good on Charity and Mozart Kugel (chocolate balls) are the best!
I've been really enjoying your emails of your European pics…bringing back memories. I've made it to within 30 min of Salzburg TWICE….but have never actually gotten there. Your photos have inspired me.
Love your emails & blogs.
Bringing back so many memories of my own trip to Salzburg!!! Hellbrunn palace is so fun! Must see if you are in the area! And the chocolate balls are heaven!!!
Not related to this stop….but I am curious what camera gear you traveled with for your trip. On these days with all of your walking and touring did you stick to one lense?
Is the water still a majestic aquamarine? My husband and I were more impressed by the water in Salzburg than Jamaica.
