Schloss Hellbrun and Mozart

After a leisurely morning packing, transferring and uploading photos onto my computer, Danielle, Matt and I headed to Salzburg Hbf so I could buy my ticket to Croatia for tonight. Once that formality was out of the way we jumped on a bus to head to Schloss Hellbrun - the summer hunting palace.
Whoever built this had a wicked sense of humor that's for sure. Water jets that sprayed out of the chairs guests were sitting on, curtain fountains as you passed into buildings and reindeer or some sort of deer with water spurting from its antlers. There were also large gardens you could walk through as well as a smallish palace (well small for a palace in Europe anyway) to visit.
Upon catching the bus back into Salzburg it was time to say goodbye to Danielle and Matt who had a plane to catch a good six hours before my train left. So I wandered through the city and visited the two houses or Mozart. I also grabbed some prized ice-cream and made my way back to the hostel to spend an hour or two before my train to Croatia departed.
