Austria has few peers as a year-round holiday destination, with plenty of winter sports in the Alps, some of the most impressive and overblown architecture in Europe and an unrivalled musical tradition that even The Sound of Music couldn't sully. Austria's cities have plenty to engage visitors: Vienna is the capital, hub of the country's musical life and littered with beautiful buildings; music, art and architecture reach baroque perfection in Salzburg, Mozart's birthplace; Innsbruck's snow-capped peaks frame fascinating historic buildings.

Salzburg, Sunday 29 October 2017

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 | By europe2013 | Views [133]

Our last day in Salzburg so we decided to find the last few Sound of Music spots.  We headed out in dubious weather and came across a storm – luckily there was a sky dome (part of an art installation) available.  It has a hole in the ... Read more >

Salzburg, Friday 27 October 2017

Fri, 27 Oct 2017 | By europe2013 | Views [161]

Our tour picked us up at our motel and off we went.  For the first time this trip we found an Aussie travelling with us.  Jennifer from North Melbourne, and she was good company for the tour.  We went to all the main sights from the movie ... Read more >

Zell am See to Salzburg, Thursday 26 October 2017

Thu, 26 Oct 2017 | By europe2013 | Views [132]

Our timing was excellent – all we could see 100m in each direction was fog.  So lucky with yesterday.  Caught the train back to Salzburg, booked in and went wandering the old town.  Found the steps and both fountains from “... Read more >

Zell am See, Wednesday 25 October 2017

Wed, 25 Oct 2017 | By europe2013 | Views [135]

I think we are the only people in this accommodation – it is great 😊.  We chatted with Dirk and Andrea about what to do today and they suggested the chair lift – and how exciting could that be?  So we caught the bus to the base ... Read more >

Vienna to Zell am See, Tuesday 24 October 2017

Tue, 24 Oct 2017 | By europe2013 | Views [151]

Left our little motel which was very much a rabbit warren – I think there were about 10 corners from the lift to our room.  The weather had improved for us.  This meant a pretty train ride to Salzburg but from there it was a beautiful ... Read more >

Vienna, Monday 23 October 2017

Mon, 23 Oct 2017 | By europe2013 | Views [152]

Went to Karl’s platz where we took the ticket for the Karl’s kirche and opted for the ticket to the top.  The lift is this steel structure in the middle of the church and quite out of place – but they have been renovating and have ... Read more >

Vienna, Sunday 22 October 2017

Sun, 22 Oct 2017 | By europe2013 | Views [140]

Went to the Museum of Natural History at 9.30. Got out at 4.  The most amazing museum.  The building itself was completed in 1889 and is very grand.  The displays (and it has over 30 million artefacts) consist of gems, fossils, the world’... Read more >

Vienna, Saturday 21 October 2017

Sat, 21 Oct 2017 | By europe2013 | Views [159]

Looked like rain had set in but it did not matter as our first point of call was indoors.  The Spanish Riding School with its famous Lipizzanier stallions was amazing.  Both horses and riders were exceptional, the venue was special, and our ... Read more >

Budapest to Vienna, Friday 20 October 2017

Fri, 20 Oct 2017 | By europe2013 | Views [131]

This morning was foggy! We walked to Margaret Island which is in the middle of the Danube and a great oasis.  Rented two monster rollers for a ride around the park.  As we were there before the crowd we got to hoon around on these electric ... Read more >

Zell am See an Austrian Delight

Sat, 5 Aug 2017 | By shaz | Views [54]

I have been to Austria years ago but not Zell am See. A colleague had an apartment in Pissendorf near Zell am See and offered it to me for my trip. She had amazing views of the mountains from her living room. I could see para gliders circling the mountains ... Read more >
