Germany: Salzburg

From Munich Germany we took an 1 1/2 hour train ride to Salzburg Austria. It was cold (43) and rainy all day. Although the German national rail system went on strike the night before, we were still able to take our train from Munich to Salzburg on-time with no problems. We wondered what would happen to our return train reservations in two days, but that turned out not to be a problem because the strike was settled by then.

We went on a city sightseeing tour and then walked the old town with rain jacket and umbrella. There was an interesting fortress high on a hill overlooking the city, and there was a big emphasis on Mozart. We had the famous Sacher-Torte chocolate cake with whipped cream at the Sacher Hotel cafe.

We spent another day in Salzburg and went on the 4-hour Sound of Music tour, which was actually pretty interesting since you visit all the places from the movie. Also we walked the old town some more, and visited the fortress high on the hill over the city. It was slightly warmer (48) and light rain most of the day.
