Salzburg: and its music

Salzburg: and its music

Posted from Salzburg, Salzburg, Austria. If Salzburg has one claim to fame it’s being the setting for the Sound of Music. It’s next claim is being the birth place of Mozart.

I wasn’t sure where my ticket would leave me, but the transportation system in the city is excellent and very straight forward to […]
