Sorry for the delay. We were there in mid-March and I am finally getting around to write this.
Flight - We always fly Lufhansa when traveling to central/eastern Europe. They are the best !!!! Great service on the airplane, timely, and no luggage problems.
Hotel - We stayed at the Hotel Weisse Taube. Excellent choice. Friendly staff, good location, nice clean room. See our review in the hotel section.
Weather - My God !!! It was like late spring.....comfortably warm. We didn't need jackets or sweaters during the day. Only at night or early morning. Got to eat and drink outside every day. Flowers blooming in Mirabell gardens.
Salzburg - Just beautiful. Strolling around the Getreidegasse and the surrounding area was great. We purchased the Salzburg card and found it to be a good investment, especially if you want to see the sights. Strolling the Linzergasse was and stopping in the ouside cafes was great.
Mozart Houses - The Geburtshaus was ok...not really a lot to see. The residence house was much better. Both free of charge with the Salzburg card.
Salzburg Fortress - Stunning views and a very interesting tour. Nice cafe to have a drink or something to eat while enjoying the view. A must see. Free with the Salzburg card.
Wax Museum - Worth seeing if you have the Salzburg card...once again free.
Modern Art Museum/Fortress - Once again stunning views of Salzburg and a nice cafe to enjoy the views. Fre with the Salzburg card
Day trip to Berchtesgaden. - Defintely worth it. A short 20 minute bus ride. The Eagles nest was not open in March but the town was worth seeing. Beautiful little Alpine/Bavarian village.
Favorite places to eat - Den Wilden Mann restaraunt - just off the Getreidegasse. You can spot it looking down one of the alleys toward the river. Has a large lantern. The Sausage vendors in the market and the pretzel vendors as well.
Mozart Dinner. Excellent !!!!! Great Music and song . We both had the breast of Capon and it was very good. Nice friednly people at our table. We were seated specifically with English speaking customers. great Venue !!
In all, we loved the City.
