Have you picked up on the fact most of these entries might have titles from Sound of Music songs?
Anyway, we arrived at
Anyway, I usually crash out after travelling but I think the earlier flight naps saw me OK and we dragged our bags upstairs to our HUGE room, put on a couple more layers of clothes and headed out into the city.
The hotel was ideally located for the Christmas Markets in Damplatz and Residentzplatz. You can pretty much buy anything festive at the Christkindl Markt (http://www.christkindlmarkt.co.at/) from crafts, textiles, food and drink, baubles, garlands, clothing and almost anything else you can think of. We started stocking up, and I got an adorable Santa tea light holder among other things. Now I'm sure lots of the stuff is made in
We wandered around enjoying a mug of Gluhwein and a Hot Dog, as well as a bag of caramelised cashew and macadamia nuts. These became our afternoon pick-me-up, from a stall in the DamMarkt, absolutely delicious!!
We found our way around the area near the hotel including the shopping streets, like Getriedegasse, which was just along Judengrasse from the hotel.
We went back to the hotel, I had a nap and we ate dinner in the Symphonie restaurant in the hotel, which was lovely, although I was so tired, I couldn't really eat much!
But a lovely first day none the less!
My big advice for Salzburg - wear flat comfortable walking shoes! I wore UGGS the whole time I was there which was great - my feet were csy but not too hot, they were comfy and I could have trailed around all day - had my knee not got sore in the cold!
