Innsbruck - Salzburg

We moved on pretty quickly from Innsbruck - it was only ever meant to be a stopping point along the way - driving straight on towards Salzburg where we planned to spend a bit more time; two days and one night.

We had a great time in Salzburg, despite the cold and rain which was following us; visiting the Palace of Mirabelle (where they filmed do-re-me from The Sound of Music) and Mozart's Residence (where they had excellent cakes and coffee (we went there twice)).

We also spent a fair amount of time wandering around the old town, visiting the churches and monasteries and even saw a live Mozart performance! We had some typical Salzburg cuisine for dinner, including an incredibly fluffy meringue-like desert.

On Monday the shops were open and we spent some time wandering in and out. We also climbed to the top of the fortress, to take in the spectacular views over the town, before heading back to our car for the drive towards Vienna.
