Hotel was right across the road from the main train station. Very clean and rooms were great. It wouldn't hurt the staff to smile but other than that a convenient and comfortable stay

... 30 that night. Luckily the local pub was still open for dinner.
Friday also brought bad weather. So we went to Salzburg, where we visited the castle. To get to the castle we rode the (very steep) furnicular up the hill. The castle was fun, and the museum nice.

You can already get the vibe that it is more crowded and dirty. So we immediately get ...
Went to see where they repair. Lufthansa and customer plans. Couldn't take pictures inside, but neat facility. Got up close to 747 being overhauled. Saw two 747 for a middle Easter rich guy, being outfitted. In all a cost of about a billion dollars. Enjoyed some free time in Hamburg Olster Lake. Rode on a solar powered ...
