Salzburg, the home of the Sound of Music and Mozart..such a lovely town.  It's great for walking around, but more than a weekend there and I wouldn't know what to do with myself.  It's lovely and the ride from Germany there is lovely too.  Driving through the Alps, you enter this sleepy little town with a river running through.  You can see Mozart's birth home and eat some yummy Austrian food.

I visited this city again three years later with my mom and step father.  We took the fanicula up to the Castle and did the tour.  We spent a day at the Salt mines outside of Salzburg.  Brian and I have done the mines in Krakow, and we both thought those ones were more beautiful.  However, we did learn more about salt mining in the Austrian tour as well as enjoying a slide ride twice in the mines.  We also took the ride to Eagle's Nest.  We had lunch right at the restaurant in the parking lot (where you catch the bus up the mountain) and had some delish goulash.
