The visit started out as a stopover on our 13 hour drive from Croatia to Germany, but turned out to be one of the best cities we had ever been in!

Before deciding to spend a night in Salzburg, Lukas told me that everyone he knows who has visited the city has nothing but good things to say! Now I understand how the city makes you fall in love with it.
The city centre has an ambience of elegance and prestige…. but what really blew me away was the fairytale setting (complete with the white horse and carriage)!
We stayed in Connie’s modern airbnb just outside the city centre for the night which was ideal.

It was early evening when we arrived in Salzburg and we wasted no time before wandering around the beautiful streets and squares.
For dinner we ate in a traditional Austrian restaurant called Alter Fuchs.
The outside seating area is great for people watching and soaking up the vibe but we chose to dine in the outside courtyard for a more exclusive feel. I would highly recommend the Rindersaftgulasch mit Semmelknödel und Essiggurkerl. If you are not fluent in German I would suggest order this dish by saying the beef goulash with dumplings!
After consuming our weight in beer and goulash we headed back to the airbnb for the night.
In the morning we explored the birthplace of Wolfgang Mozart and discovered the famous Mozartkugeln! These are chocolate balls filled with marzipan, pistachio and nougat….had to buy some for the journey home!
As well as admiring the baroque architecture from the town squares we decided to get an even more impressive view from the Hohensalzburg Fortress.
Unfortunately, it was time to start our last part of the journey back Germany in the afternoon. Even though we had a fleeting visit to Salzburg, the memories will definitely form some of my favourite parts of our 2 week trip! I believe anyone could feel at home in this beautiful city and we look forward to returning soon.
