Travel Blogs from Salzburg
We arrived in Salzburg and went to check out the town. Salzburg's downtown is pretty small, so it was quick to walk everywhere (and we didn't get lost! - too much). We went to the Residenz - the Archbishop's Palace and saw decorated rooms from the 18th and 19th century. There was also an art gallery with an exhibition about the Alps (they had a map …
Traveled around city and LOVED it. Music played everywhere. Saw Church with Crypts. Town square had LARGE chess table. Left hostel in rain/thunder storm to call Teresa one night. Went on "Sound of Music Tour", and got duped into buying overpriced strudel. Ate at a Turkish restaurant. Went to local grocery store. Left early in the morning.
Day two in Salzburg started off bright and sunny, much unlike the forecast for rain. I had until 10 in the morning until my 24 hour Salzburg card was due to expire. So I decided to make the most of it. I caught the early bus headed out of Salzburg to nearby Hellbrun. The first part of my exploration at Hellbrun, included the tour of the trick …
So these are a few of my favourite things... I was so excited for Austria, because I knew we would get to do the Sound of Music tour in Salzburg, where they filmed the musical back in 1964. But first, we went to Vienna. We were only in Vienna for one night, so we headed out for dinner and had these amazing schnitzels, maybe the best schnitzels out there. They were thin, and the coating tasted similar to KFC almost, but less greasy. Such a good ...
Today was the first day we have slept in past 7 am and saw a little sun shine! It was so nice. We took it easy this morning by walking around the entire city (not hard to do, it is a small place) before heading to our tour of the Bavarian Alps! The tour was very different from what we expected. Only mom and I were on the Alps tour and another man was on a salt mining tour. The combined the two tours together, which was near impossible.

This place is very clean, quiet and a good deal if you are looking for a central location for a very reasonable price. We had our own room with a bathroom. There is a kitchen (2 burners - no oven - sink , fridge and microwave) on each floor and dishes, pots etc can be requested from the staff. The front desk staff are very friendly and helpful.
I wouldn't recommend it for people who are travelling alone or are looking to meet other travelers. It's pretty big and a bit institutional. It is a university residence during the school year. It's also beside a church with a large bell that chimes every 15 minutes starting at 7 AM - so not for those who love to sleep in either.
The included breakfast is pretty basic - buns, tea or coffee, juice, jam and packaged turkey spread.
