Salzburg Austria

The beautiful old town of Salzburg... snow on the mountains, a fortress on the hill, beautiful old buildings, a river running through the center, and sweet dessert.
Salzburg is known as the birth town of Mozart and the 'Sound of Music" movie. We did visit the birth house which was totally a rip off. The birth house/apartment is a so called museum which contained a fake baby in a bassinet, a piano surrounded by Mozart family portraits, and strings of his hair, and other person stuff. We didn't lean much more about Mozart's life than we already knew.

Our favorite things during this weekends trip were having beers at the Monerstary Braüstüberl in the city district of Mülln (Josh's favorite) and attending a classic concert in Schloss (palace) Mirabell (Ally's favorite).
