    Salzburg for a few days

    Salzburg is a great city and I highly recommend it for people to see! I had about 3 days in Salzburg and would say that 3 days is a perfect amount. Some amazing sights, things to do were: - Salzburg museum - Mirabell Palace and Gardens - Hohensalzburg Fortress - Salzburg Residenz Palace - Sazlburg Cathedral - Erzabtei St Peter Church (also check out the catacomb in the cliffside that over looks the church and cemetery) - Hellbrunn Palace and trick fountains - Getreidegasse for shopping

    Insider Tip:- Get a Salzburg Card - I got the 72hr card for only 36 euro I feel it was definitely worth the money. - Best time to visit would be in Summer and many places are closed and fountains and covered up in winter. - Go up the Museum der Moderne Monchsberg lift to get a stunning view of the city - best in the evening with the sun setting. - Keep and eye out for quaint cafes/restaurants down little alleyways in Getreidegasse. Many have tables outside with blankets and heat lamps - its lovely!

    Sound of Music

    This city is certainly has a large base of Tourism surrounding the movie "Sound of Music". They have tours daily and places around the city are easy to pick out. Even though most Austrians don't like the movie itself, it's a great tour and the Austrians support tourism. Go on the tour to find out why.

    Insider Tip:Try the Mozart balls.... Also, go to the top of the Hotel Stein at night, there is a restaurant/ bar, you need not pay, just walk in. Great pictures from the balcony. Also, amazing pictures from the Mozart walking bridge as well.
