After checking in, we walked around Salzburg and had lunch before returning to the hotel to be picked up for our "Sound of Music Tour." The tour was a four hour tour that took us to many of the locations used in the filming of The Sound of Music. Here are a few:
Above: Gazebo ("I am 16 going on 17...")
Left: The road to the von Trapp house, where the children hung from the trees in their playclothes made from curtains.
Above: The fortress overlooking all of Salzburg
Left: Nonnberg Abbey, where Maria was a novice.
Above: Inside the Cathedral in Mondsee, used for the wedding scene. Below: the Cathedral from the outside.
After the tour, we went to dinner and had some great Wiener Scnitzel . Then we walked around, enjoyed more gluwein, and took part in all the Christmas festivities.
The next day was Saturday, and the streets were more crowded than ever with shoppers enjoying the Holiday markets. We walked around some more, and I climbed the hill to get a better view of Nonnberg Abbey. Then we headed to the train station to return to Munich.
