Hohensalzburg Fortress can be seen on top of the hill.
And at night… !
Walking through the beautiful Old Town of Salzburg.
Loved the little hidden boutique shops.
And handmade crafts.
Local farmers market.
Test tubes of salt!
This was the location of the current (reconstructed) gazebo from The Sound of Music. The original location was at Schloss Leopoldskron (another Palace used as the Von Trapp family house), but we didn’t get a chance to go there.
My favourite yellow wall.
Wandering and searching the grounds for the gazebo.
Mission accomplished!! (Salzburg, Austria)
Peering inside the gazebo. Obviously it’s a smaller reconstructed version because the space between the benches are so small! It would have taken Liesl next to no effort to leap between these benches!
Hellbrunner Allee – This was the street used when Maria first arrived to the Von Trapp mansion (after her guitar got stuck as she was getting off the bus while singing I Have Confidence). This was apparently also the scene where the children were seen playing in the trees as the Captain was returning into Salzburg.
Outside of Schloss Frohnburg along Hellbrunner Allee.
Schloss Frohnburg – The front exterior filming location for the Von Trapp mansion.
Mozart monument in Mozartplatz square.
Residenzplatz – Maria walks along the square and splashes water at the fountain while singing I Have Confidence. Salzburg, Austria.
St. Peter’s Abbey
Käsekrainer – sausage with cheese! It was SO delicious!
Sachertorte. I’m not usually a chocolate fan, but this was pretty darn good.
The inside of a legit original Salzburg Mozartkugeln by Fürst.
Mirabell Palace & Gardens – Not the best picture because the steps are outside of the picture at the bottom but those were the same steps that Maria and the children were jumping from when they were singing Do Re Mi.
Pegasus Fountain in the Mirabell Gardens. Maria and the children danced around this fountain during Do Re Mi.
Another fountain in the Mirabell Gardens where Maria and the children danced around during Do Re Mi.
More hedge tunnels! Also a scene from Do Re Mi.
Nonnberg Abbey – Didn’t get a chance to go around to see the front gates, but the inside courtyard was where the nuns were singing Maria (“how do you solve a problem like Maria? How do you catch a cloud and pin it down?…”)
Climbing up to Hohensalzburg Fortress.
One of the buildings in the courtyard of the fortress. Salzburg, Austria.
Canon with a view.
Entrance to a dungeon of some sort.
Elements of torture.
I love all these medieval stuff.
I call this a really old kitchen.
“Salzburg Bull” (Salzburger Stier). According to wiki, this huge mechanical organ, built in 1502, is a large aerophon of more than 200 pipes.
View from the top! Salzburg, Austria.
Breathtaking. Salzburg, Austria.
Petersfriedhof (St. Peter’s Cemetery)
This was where the Von Trapp family was hiding from the soldiers near the end of the movie (although the actual scenes were filmed at a studio)
