Paradise in Salzburg
Salzburg is my favorite place in Europe. In the world, really. I intended to stay for just a couple of nights, but ended up staying for nearly a week. This city is enchanting and mystical. As you explore the small cobblestoned streets, the fortress is always above, looking stately and grand as ever. I highly recommend taking a Sound of Music tour, and getting up to see either the Eagles Nest or the world's largest ice caves!! Both are unforgettable experiences. This city changed me :-)
Insider Tip:Even if you don't like modern art, go up to where the modern art building is (it looks kind of like a small castle, on a hill to the right of the fortress). From atop this hill, you can get great pictures of the city of Salzburg, the beautiful cathedrals AND the fortress, all in one shot!! I also highly recommend taking tours. There is a lot to see in the city, but also a lot around it!! The ice caves are absolutely amazing!
