Salzburg Day Trip (Sunday, August 2nd)

A 5:45 alarm the morning after Bergfest wasn't exactly pleasant, but spending the train ride to Munich snoozing helped a bit.  Meeting up with our travel buddies for the day, we grabbed a coffee and some bread before boarding the train to Salzburg. The train ride was filled with some information from our tour guide and chatting among our group.  One guy in our group told us that he was planning to propose to his girlfriend at the end of their Eurotrip and we gave our two cents worth about the most romantic/most cliche/most memorable places he should pop the question.  Kayli added him on Facebook, so hopefully we'll see how the big proposal turned out.

Next stop, Salzburg!
Once we arrived in Salzburg we made our way into the city with our group and had a nice walking tour of the city. By the time it came to an end, however, we all really wanted something to eat. Or, in the words of Mr. G, "If I don't get sausage, beer, and chocolate in the next 5 minutes I'm going to start committing crimes".  Needless to say, we ate our way happily through Salzburg that day.

We visited the Mozart's birth house and drank coffee in a cute outdoor cafe, another two musts of Salzburg. Kayli was nearly thrown out of the Mozart house for attempting to sneakily take pictures...schwoops!

The sun was shining down on us and all and all it couldn't have been a more beautiful day!

On the train ride home we all wrote our favorite things from the day on postcards and then everyone got a postcard with everyone's memories on them.  Such a nice way to remember the trip!

Once we got back to Munich we headed to a Biergarten in the city and eventually all parted ways.  Even though I had been in Salzburg two times before, I think this trip takes the cake! Thanks Mr. G for inviting us on this awesome adventure!!!

  1. Ooh, your photos are rather lovely! I actually really hate Salzburg, it was always grey when I've been and I've developed this irrational dislike for it, but your pictures make it look very quaint!

  2. It's a pity that you've always had such crummy weather in Salzburg! I've had several lovely trips there with great weather :) Is there somewhere particular in Austria you find nice?

  3. I love the mountains, so I'm pretty happy in Austria :-) I visited Vienna earlier this year and really loved it - the architecture was very impressive.
