Salzburg: Impressions from the city along the Salzach

At the end of November we visited the city along the river Salzach. We searched and found the Best Christmas Markets in Salzburg and attended the Gnigler Krampuslauf, where wild creatures roam the streets.

View from the Fortress Hohensalzburg

The Fortress / Castle Hohensalzburg is the symbol of the city Salzburg. More than a million visitors per year walk up the steep way or take the Festungsbahn (funicular). Especially in the evening the view from the largest, fully-preserved fortress in Central Europe is spectacular.

One of the coolest cafes in Salzburg.

One of the most colorful and coolest cafes in Salzburg is the Afro Cafe. The walls are covered with colorful paintings and the coffee and (vegetarian) food tastes great. What a color splash.

Original Mozart-Kugeln

What would be Salzburg without Mozart? If you want to taste the one and only original Mozart-Kugel you´ll find them at the Cafe Fürst close to the Dom- and Residenzplatz. Delicious. They are handmade and filled with nougat, marzipan and other sweeeeet stuff.

  1. Nice photos..! I really like Salzburg. I once went there for a business trip and I really enjoyed roaming the streets in the evening.. I even went up to a hill where it looked really mysterious and kind of scary too.. but the view was just mesmerising. Oh, and they’ve got a great authentic Chinese restaurant there 🙂

  2. Your pictures are great, though I do wish they were a bit bigger! I have never been to Salzburg, lately though I have been seeing a lot of bloggers posting about Austria, makes me want to get there (especially around the holidays)!

      Do you really think a lot of bloggers are posting about Austria? If so, it´s great altough I don´t find a lot writing about Austria. Looks like I have to do a little research. 😉
