After leaving Vienna we tracked westward along the A1 West Autobahn.

Our first stop was Melk - a city of Austria, in the federal state of Lower Austria, next to the Wachau valley along the Danube. It is best known as the site of a massive baroque Benedictine monastery named Melk Abbey.

From there we continued along the A1 until Gail suddenly announces "Let's stop in this town!". It was the town of Enns. Whilst there wasn't a lot to see here (the landmark being the City Tower) we did however get a chance to stretch our legs before re-joining the Autobahn in the direction of Salzburg.

By the time we arrived into Salzburg, the weather wasn't conducive for walking around so we continued on toward the historic town of Hallein. It is located in the Tennengau region south of the city of Salzburg along the Salzach River, near the border of Germany and in the shadow of the Untersberg Massif.

After exploring the little town we crossed the border into Germany over a narrow mountain pass and located our B & B for the night which was nestled at the base of the hills in the very small village of Marktschellenberg. It was late in the day and we were too tired to try to find a local eatery, so when the host of the B & B offered to cook our meal for a small additional charge, we just couldn't say no.
