Have you been to Salzburg Austria? Let me intice you with my photography stroll of the magical charms of Salzburg. Let the photos speaks for itself.
My flight to Salzburg is scheduled early in the morning. A four hour wait until boarding time. I spent in cafe bar, after three mugs of hot chocolate and couple of pan au chocolat atlast it’s time to board. Just two hours flight from London and a quick catched up with some snooze, we safely landed in Salzburg Airport. Travelling light with just my hand luggage saves me time waiting at the baggage carrousel. Walked straight to the taxi rank and after 15 minutes drive, viola! Im in my hotel. A quick shower and freshen up I’m ready for my wander. The hotel is only 15 minutes walk to the Old Town which is handy. With my good sense of direction, wandering around the cobbled alleyways. I accidentally stumbled in Sternbraü this place was recommended by someone so I guess it’s time to sample some Austrian cuisine. The staff are wearing traditional costume such as Tracht, the locals also wear Dirndl and Lederhosen. After chatting to the waitress and with her recommendation, I ordered gosser sommer beer and Sternbraü bratwurst, it was a delightful lunch.

After lunch I’m ready for more photography stroll I walked towards the Salzach River, a beautiful walk and the view is stunning. Along the riverside there are stalls for local Austrian product from jewellery, food to wines.

After my riverside walk, I headed towards the old town. I then ended up in a square with more stalls selling Austria local produce wine, pretzel and there’s even a funfair. They are celebrating St. Rupert the Patron Saint of Austria. I headed towards the pretzel stall. It’s good timing for desert, I had chocolate pretzel. I continued my wander around and there’s an Austrian band playing, next to a local austrian wine stall. Sipping a Schilcher Strum wine and listening to the band’s playing, what a perfect way to end the day.

On the following day I explored Schloss Leopoldskrun, it’s a bit hidden place but the view of the palace by the lake was mesmerising. It feels like in a location scene from a romantic movie.

Just after wandering around the lake, I headed to Hellbrunn. Another beautiful palace and the garden was amazing. The fountain and other water features guaranteed having a fun time of your visit.

A visit to the Mirabell garden is not to miss out. The garden is free of charge. Have your packed lunch and enjoy your day by the fountain area or by the rose garden. With a book at hand surely an experience of a lazy afternoon the Austrian way.

If you still have enough energy to explore. Why not continue your journey towards the Festung Hohensalzburg or the fortress. Wait as the sunsets and enjoy the view of whole city. A romantic place to spend the afternoon with your love one’s.

  1. Salzburg is one of my favourite places in Europe! My best friend from high school was Austrian & I spent two weeks there with her family, it is so magical 🙂

  2. During my Interrail trip I was choosing between Salzburg and Graz to visit. We ended up going to Graz cause it was more convenient in terms of trains. But Salzburg looks stunning too, I should come back! 🙂

  3. First let me say WONDERFUL pictures! I enjoyed them all, especially the musicians in the local costume. I love all things Germany and have not been here yet but you can rest assured that it is very high on the list!

  4. Wow, Salzburg is beautiful! I have never been to Austria, but I definitely want to go one day. I love the lake, you are right, it does look like a scene from a romantic movie!

  5. In my last visit to Austria had only managed to cover Innsbruck and Vienna. After reading this might just be motivated enough to go visit it. It looks like it has the best of both the cities 🙂
