So it's only been a week since I've moved to Germany, and before I've got to seen the real Munich sights, I have already made a trip to Salzberg with the Munich International friends.
Most famously known for the birthplace of Mozart and the filming of Sound of Music, the quaint but small city in Austria did not fail to impress.

Our first stop in Salzburg was the Mirabell palace and gardens, with the gardens in particular being beautifully maintained

With yet another lover's padlock bridge leaning over the Salzach River, the view of the Festungsberg mountain and Hohensalzburg was really beautiful. I highly recommend walking down the river, past the market stalls to embrace the scenic route. Especially at night time, the river is even more stunning.

Another great and touristy place is Getreidegasse, a long and narrow street with lots of high end shops and old style shop signs. Most famously, Mozarts Geburtshaus is also located on the street too. However if you are not fully interested in Mozart, it is a great opportunity to walk around the town - to which I particularly loved seeing the mobile library in the middle of the square, decorated full of hammocks and fatboys.

Later on we visited the Salzburg Cathedral, to which I thought the interior design of the building was something quite special. With a thick black outline of the features I felt it gave the cathedral a 3D essence.

One of my favorite parts of the day was walking up to the Hohensalzburg Fortress. Despite costing around 8 Euros for entrance, the views inside the castle were breathtaking. Although the place was filled with so much history (and to a certain extent a lot of torture ) it was surrounded by such a calm and peaceful atmosphere.
We ended the day walking down the castle and eating dinner at the Stieglkeller Biergarten (for yet another highly recommended place to see the view). Enjoy my photos!
