Austria: Innsbruck, Salzburg and the countryside (June 2005)
We spent a couple days in Austria on our way to Prague. The landscape was picturesque
with rolling hills and plenty of farmland.
This is a glimpse of the typical Austrian landscape - Freistadt
Walking the streets of Innsbruck taking it all in
Innsbruck's claim to fame, the 'famous' Golden Roof.
... we think it should be the ice cream, Yummy!!!
The colorful town square in Innsbruck
Salzburg - a city rich with history, art and culture. We thoroughly enjoyed it here!
'The Sound of Music' was based on the story of the Von Trapp family who lived
here in 1940s.
A look at Salzburg from their medieval fortress on the hill
This colorful building was the birthplace of Mozart in 1756.
Mozart grew up here...
Ok, moving on...
Mozart has seen better days...
Parts of Salzburg date back to over 1,300 years ago
Beautiful spires decorate the Salzburg skyline
The Cathedral - built in 1614
Inside the Cathedral, this Dome was reconstructed after being destroyed in World War II
Yummy... fresh Austrian strawberries! We couldn't resist the temptation.
The strawberry lady got such a kick out of us that she gave us our pickings for free!!!
... we should have picked more :)
