Salzburg

Old Town Wanderings

rain 18 °C

Arriving in Salzburg made my heart sink – continuous pouring rain that really didn’t look like it was going to abate. But managed to hop on a bus to the hostel where I luckily ran into Danielle and Matt in the lobby. Good luck really because it would have been interesting to try and find them downtown.

So we wandered around the old town despite the weather (my Granada umbrella has come in quite handy this trip). Some Italiano was in order for lunch today. Then in the afternoon we headed up to the Salzburg fortress which afforded awesome views of the city in a brief respite from the rain. On the back down into the old town we stopped by the abbey from the sound of music near the end when the von Trapps are hiding in the graveyard. Very pretty. Walking back to the bus we headed through the gardens of Mirabell Schloss.
