Part 3: Salzburg
The last of the three-day trip was spent in Salzburg, Austria, home of the Sound of Music! We had the option to pay for a Sound of Music movie tour, to view various spots from the film, but I opted out in order to explore the city on my own.
|countryside of Austria|
You can imagine how much the tiny town of Salzburg boasts its reputation as the site for the Sound of Music -- it was shown throughout the city!
Such as on this pig!
|and horse fountains|
|and even a duck?|

The beautiful Salzach River, which flows through the city.
|can you spot it?|
Later, we would hike the hillsides up to the Hohensalzburg Castle, and then to a brewery run by monks, seen here!
But first, Salzburg is also the birthplace of Mozart, so there was a lot of Mozart paraphernalia everywhere. I think his home where he grew up was around this street?
and his home!
|his childhood home, that is|
|finally, sun after all that cloudiness|
|wait, the Louvre?!|
|the city square beneath the fortress|
|twins <3 <3|
What's Austria without pretzels?
|the fortress forever looming|
And thus began the hike to the top!
|Wishing you were somehow here again....|
Starting off with a trip through the cemetery, naturally.
|Wishing you were somehow near...|
|Sometimes it seems, if I just dreamed...ok I'm done|
|hey, good progress|
...and to the right.
|coming for ya!!!!|
|hey it's me!|
Fortress, this way!
After many long years, we made it to the top!
|city through a barred window|
|city through a window tampered with by Ron Weasley|
|Salzburg from above!|
|such Austrian food|
|the dining hall, ft. my thumb|
After the brewery, we trekked back down for some final, picturesque views.
|the hiiiiiiills are aliiiiive|
|with the soooound of muuuuusic....|
