Steve and Jen tour through Salzburg, Austria


18 July 2017

Some of the sights in Salzburg.
Visited Mozart's birthplace. Salzburg's greatest son was born in 1756 in this house on Getreidegasse No. 9.
Visited the Hohensalzburg Fortress originally built in 1077 To get to the fortress we were required to take a tram ride. Spectacular views of Salzburg was the reward.
Salzburg's Cathedral-the earliest Italian style church to be built north of the alps - undoubtedly the core of the Old Town.
St Peter's church and graveyard is noted for the scene in the Sound of Music where the Trapp family hid and escaped from the Nazi's.
