A crystal piece done by Salvador Dalí in the Swarovski Crystal Worlds
I dont remember as much about what we did here. We started out at Swarovski Crystal Worlds (Swarovski Kristallwelten) which was more of a bizzare art museum utilizing crystal than anything terribly educational but it was still very neat. I got a picture of the piece done by Salvador Dalí and we also bought some nice souvenirs at the shop (the largest Swarovski shop in the world) at the end. The necklaces I got were really rather cheap compared to how much you pay back in the states and the variety was unmached.

Our tour then led us to the old town area where we were shown the Golden Roof and the outsides of some buildings and finally a chuch. The painting of Jesus and Mary at the center behind the alter is supposedly the most copied Jesus and Mary in the world.

The next morning we would fly back home. So as it was our last day in Europe we strolled around just enjoying the archetecture and of course had a nice lunch. It was the first time we found French onion soup on a menu which we thought was rather odd. I made sure to have hot chocolate as I have yet to have a half way decent cup of it in the states. Next time I come to Europe I really want to spend my time in Salzburg and maybe Munich. I really liked all the Germanic areas I saw (or perhaps its really Bavarian) though it is possible my British friend will kill me if I dont make it to England! Ah well we'll see!!!
