Road trip St Moritz Salzburg
Road trip St Moritz Salzburg rates up there with my favourite European memories. Breathtaking scenery, snow capped mountains and wonderful food in Salzburg.
St Moritz to Salzburg
I was staying in the Italian Alps and used it as a base to visit the neighbouring countries, a great starting point for my Road trip St Moritz Salzburg.
Somewhere in southern Germany. 😳
Such a breathtaking view, what a wonderful part of the world.
Somewhere between St Moritz & Salzburg
How lucky I was to have these beautiful blue skies.
The most direct route from St Moritz to Salzburg goes through Innsbruck, however I really wanted to see the beautiful Neuschwanstein Castle, so I headed a little more north toward Munich where I was able to see this wonderful whimsical palace, perched on a rugged hill above the village of Hohenschwangau near Füssen in southwest Bavaria. The 19th century palace was commissioned by Ludwig II of Bavaria as a retreat and as an homage to Richard Wagner the famous German composer. The palace was intended as a personal refuge for the reclusive king, but it was opened to the paying public immediately after his death in 1886. Since then over 60 million people have visited Neuschwanstein Castle. More than 1.3 million people visit annually, with up to 6,000 per day in the summer. The palace has appeared prominently in several movies and was the inspiration for Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty’s Castle.

The country side is so green and lush.
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.
Great food in Salzburg.
I’m guessing there may be 2000 calories in this desert.
We are a long way from the ocean but the seafood looks fantastic.

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.
