10 Jul 2013: Salzburg's exploration

10 Jul 2013:

We reached Salzburg in the afternoon after spending some hours on the coach. The first thing to do was to unload our luggage in the hotel room. Thereafter, I joined a group of friends to head towards the Mirabellgarten (Mirabell Garden). We came across a food station that serves sausages and more, so we indulged ourselves.

After savouring the sausages and more, we continued our journey to Mirabell Garden. This is one of the filming locations of the Sound of Music. A beautiful place to visit.

After spending a considerable amount of time there, we found our way to the Mozart Residence. We learnt that Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart lived in that house from 1773 until 1780. Photography is not allowed in the exhibition galleries of the Mozart Residence. What I remember viewing in the Mozart Residence is many portraits of Mozart. The unfinished portrait of Mozart by Joseph Lange is said to most resemble Mozart. If time is a constraint, I would prefer to visit the Mozart's Birthplace to the Mozart Residence.

In the background is Mozart Residence in Salzburg.

My most memorable views of Salzburg seem to revolve around the river Salzach. Life seemed to calm itself down in Salzburg. Our next destination would be Mozart's Birthplace.
