Salzburg Outing

IMG_1036

Late in the afternoon on Monday the weather turned rainy, but not for long. We travelled to Linz, Austria and was docked by dinner. Linz is an industrial city on the Danube. I didn’t do the Linz city tour, opted instead for the bus ride to Salzburg. It was a beautiful drive through pine and fir-forested Austrian countryside, passing by villages in pretty valleys. Mist hung over the deep forests, weather rainy and cool. We stopped for a rest break at Mondsee (Moon Lake).

In Salzburg, my friends and I had lunch at the oldest restaurant in Europe, established in 803 A.D.

Not so much with the castles on this tour, mostly churches and abbeys and royal sites like the Hohensalzburg Fortress above the Benedictine monastery.

  1. If you are still there, climb the steps up to the Capuchin monastery. The view of the city up there, and the path up really interesting and beautiful.
