When I made plans to go to Salzburg it wasn’t so much of a conscious “I’ve always dreamed of Salzburg, I must go!” as it was that it was the cheapest place to fly out of to catch my plane in Oslo back home. So arriving there I didn’t have much to expect. Had I seen the Sound of Music? Well, before this European adventure, no. Funny enough, I ended up seeing the movie twice though, and neither times were actually in Salzburg. But deedless to say, by the time I got there I was pretty excited about running up the famous stairs in Mirabelle Platz, and that was about all I knew.
So what did I think of Salzburg? I am in love. Despite the horrible heat the
first few days, (I’m talking upper 90’s every day, hardly any breeze, and no air conditioning anywhere) I absolutely adored the city. As I mentioned before, I really didn’t have just a whole lot to expect when visiting this city but it was a wonderful experience to be able to explore and discover the little secrets it contained. Every thing you stumble upon becomes a new discovery, from visiting the fortress in the middle of the city, going to Mozarts apartment, and eating copious amounts of Mozart truffles and every other kind of truffle I could get my hands on, there was not much I didn’t like. The 4 full days that I spent there were filled with simply just walking everywhere, getting lost, eating delicious foods, and finding time and time again different things to fall in love with.
Would I go back? Absolutely! Sign me up and put me on the next plane. The people, the city, the architecture, all blew me away and there is so much that I still would love to do, such as going to the Salt Mines and exploring the hills.
