Darling Salzburg, Austria
Warm peaches, yellows and taupes, wrought iron signposts, vibrant flowers and pristine Baroque architecture, Salzburg has it all figured it out.
A few weeks ago my girlfriends and I called Salzburg home for a few fleeting days while exploring the stunning Austrian countryside. After day trips to stunning sights like Hallstatt, Zell Am See and the ridiculously beautiful Leichtensteinklamm gorge, we headed into the city each night for dinner and drinks.
Getting our bearings upon arrival, we settled in to the highly-rated Zum Wilder Mann, located off one of the zillions of cozy alleys the spring off the main pedestrian thoroughfare. Starting with radlers (beer and lemonade or beer and Sprite depending on the bartender and region) followed by traditional Austrian fare. Tara and I both ordered the spring chicken with fries while Jen opted for the special, vegetable stuffed strudel. Stuart promptly cleaned the floor of fries then turned his attention to my plate.
Following the meal, we glided through town, window shopping and soaking in that Austrian charm that simply can’t be replicated.
Famed for a myriad of reasons, Salzburg is otherwise known as Mozart’s city (his birthplace), home of the famous Mirabell Palace, the location of the Sound of Music filming as well as being UNESCO world heritage site (you know I like that). Strolling the streets, the city feels surprisingly fresh and almost mediterranean with all the warm tones. I absolutely loved it.
The spectacle in the evening only makes the scene more magical. After spending the day weighted by my DSLR, my iPhone attempted to serve the scene justice.
Have you been to Salzburg? If so, did you love it?
