Sightseeing in Salzburg, Austria



This is day 12 of our European tour and it was as exciting as it was tiring. We stayed at the Arcotel Castellani, Salzburg . It was quite comfortable and the breakfast was OK.

The Mirabel garden soon after the lifting of  rain was most beautiful, perhaps at its best. The city is divided by the river, the old town and the new. As is always true the old city is where you go and see most of the things. The house where Mozart was born is always crowded. Tourists milling around most of the times. The cathedral is very nice.

The 17th Century Roman Catholic Cathedral is another place you must visit. It was here that Amadeus Mozart was baptized (very obvious, the house where he was born is not too far). The Cathedral is dedicated to St. Rupert and St. Vergilius.

The Hohensalzburg castle is another place you must visit. You need to go up in a cable car and it is pretty steep. There are restaurants in the intermediate stage. The view of the city below is nice and keep you busy taking pictures.

Viennese Coffee at Tomasellis was quite good. We sat out on the terrace, but you can also sit inside the restaurant which retains some old décor.

The shopping district is never too far with lots of restaurants. I did find an Indian Restaurant run by a Punjabi and food was quite good. It was not purely Indian, you could have Italian as well as Mexican.

Here are slides from that visit.
