Salzburg Stories: Mozart, the Sound of Music, and More

Having grown up on a staple diet of Do-Re-Mi and My Favorite Things, I was thrilled to visit Salzburg in Austria. Salzburg, Austria The imposing Hohensalzburg fortress rises above the city and the River Salzach winds its way through the birthplace of Mozart. Salzburg is closely associated with the popular movie, “The Sound of Music”. From the “Do Re Mi” song location to the convent where Maria lived, several scenes from the classic were filmed here.

Summer Fun in Austria

This summer, we packed our bags for a 10-day visit to neighboring Austria. Our itinerary included the capital city of Vienna, the “musical” city of Salzburg, and the “oh-so-breathtaking” city of Innsbruck. Across Austria by OBB. From our experience, Austria is a very tourist-friendly country. We were also impressed by the efficiency and comfort (not to mention the ‘good looks’ :D) of the OBB trains in Austria. The “Kaffee und Kuchen” (coffee and cake) ritual was icing on the cake :).
