Salzburg is a major city
in the northwestern part
of the Austrian Alps.
Sarolta, my daughter and I visited Salzburg in 1978, during our touring around in Europe.
We spent a couple of days looking around and found Salzburg rich in history and fascinating.
Hui Chin and I visited Austria during 2000, and after our arrival in Vienna we spent some time sightseeing by conducted buses.
After spending a two or three days in Vienna we taken a Intercity express to Salzburg, where we spent a few days.
We visited the famous sets and backgrounds for the film "Sound of Music", and an old unused salt mine, now a tourist attraction.
Next day we went over to Germany to see Hitler's old place at Berchtesgaden, or the 'Eagles Nest', or Obersalzburg.
Also visited the old Salzburg Fortress.
Than we went on a cable car to the top of one of the many mountains around to play in a snow storm. (Hui Chin is from Singapore).
Innsbruck was our next destination.
Very beautiful with the Alps practically encircling the town.
From here we nipped over to Germany again to the famous town of Oberammergau.
Hui Chin and I were rather disappointed with Oberammergau.
After exploring Innsbruck we returned for a few days to Vienna before we took another Intercity train to Bratislava the Capital of Slovakia.
