The first time I visited Austria was in 2009 when I went with K. to Munich. I didn't know but she told me Salzburg was relatively close to the Bavarian border and since I always wanted to visit the place where Mozart was born this was an excellent opportunity to go there. We had a really good time visiting the old town with its beautiful baroque architecture. Actually just before we crossed the bridge to go there I took this picture showing an overview of this place, including the Hohensalzburg Castle. And of course we didn't leave Salzburg before visiting the birth house of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
