Austrian Summer Salzburg
European road trip St Moritz Salzburg rates up there with my favourite European memories. Breathtaking scenery, snow capped mountains and the wonderful food in Salzburg. This was certainly my best ever European trip which started in Lake Como then on to the French Riviera, a few days in the Cinque Terre before heading for Milan, Verona and Lake Garda.
This fortress is over 900 years old and was originally built to guarantee the safety of the archbishops, while also serving as barracks and a prison.
Salzburg has has three universities and a large population of students.
High fashion in Austrian Summer Salzburg
I’m rushing straight to the shops to buy a pair.
It’s nice to walk around clean city streets with no traffic.
Busy Salzburg Street
It’s always a pleasure to wander around parts of the city where there are no vehicles.
Nice square in Austrian Summer Salzburg
Everybody is enjoying this perfect summer day.
Seafood in Salzburg.
We are a long way from the ocean but the seafood looks fantastic.
Too much seafood is never enough
What a fabulous display, it looks as good as I have seen anywhere in the world.
The blushing bride looks very happy indeed.
I stayed at this very nice hotel a few kms out of the city. Nice room and very good food in the restaurant. Agoda rate the hotel Bristol at 9.2, this is very high indeed.
Dinner at my hotel
A schnitzel is compulsory in Austria. 🙂
OMG, the calories.
I’m guessing there may be over 2000 calories in this desert.
My hotel was quite upmarket and in a great location, use THIS LINK for a very good discount.
Salzburg is the home of Mozart.
Born on January 27, 1756, in Salzburg, Austria, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was a musician capable of playing multiple instruments who started playing in public at the age of 6. Over the years, Mozart aligned himself with a variety of European venues and patrons, composing hundreds of works that included sonatas, symphonies, masses, concertos and operas, marked by vivid emotion and sophisticated textures. Mozart showed prodigious ability from his earliest childhood. Already competent on keyboard and violin, he composed from the age of five and performed before European royalty. At 17, he was engaged as a court musician in Salzburg.
