Salzburg, Austria

 

I added a day prior to a Munich business trip in 2014 and made an overnight journey to Salzburg, Austria. Below a few pictures from my afternoon and morning there. Pictures include a subsequent return in 2016.

 

The View of Salzburg, with the Hohensalzburg Fortress above (begun in 1077 AD, expanded around 1500 AD).

 

Walking up to the fortress gives a view of Salzburg, below.
