Salzburg is well known not only for its beauty, arts and history but also for their most famous son - one world's most beloved composers, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Being the second time in Salzburg, I was no longer exited about visiting Mozart's birthplace or tasting the Mozartkudeln. But it was certainly nice to be back in this beautiful city again.
On our one day stopover before proceeding to our next destination Hallstatt, we visited the Fortress Hohensalzburg built in 1077 by Archbishop Gebhard which is considered as the largest and fully preserved fortress in central Europe.
It was coincidental that there was a pipe organ performance on the same evening in the Salzburger Dom. We spontaneously bought the tickets and attended the performance. It was a fantastic performance as the music from the main pipe organ and two smaller side organs was so wonderful that it reached deep down one's soul.
We departed the next day by train to Hallstatt, a pretty and quintessential town surrounded by mountains and a lake.
