Salzburg (21 Sep - 22 Sep 2008)

Salzburg is just about 3 hours drive from Vienna. We left Vienna about 8 in the morning and reach Salzburg before noon. Check into the hotel and book ourselves the Sound of Music tour. I guess you know that the Sound of Music was filmed here. I love Salzburg and the place is peaceful and serene. And it got new town and old town. We are staying in the new town and across the river, within walking distance is the old part of town. Most of the activities are in the old town. There is a big square full of shops and at the same time, since we are there on Sunday, there is a flea market as well as fun fare going on.

Across the lake is one of the house used for the filming.
The gazebo in the film. Its locked so we can only see from the outside
Red Bull headquarters. We pass this when the tour took us on a scenic view on the mountains roads. It all glass and surrounded by water. Look very impressive

Must try original strudels.
