Travel Journal Entry #17: The Highs’ of Salzburg 

There is nothing better in life than having low expectations about something then being blown out your mind with the results. For me Salzburg was one of those cities I had not heard before. Might just be a hole in my personal knowledge but I must confess that I’ll definitely return here sometime. Perfect place for 4-7 day trip.

Salzburgs’ own homeboy, Mozart.

What I suggest is that you purchase the Salzburg card from the main railway stations travel office, it will save you money and makes traveling way easier as the card includes free public transportation in the city. In high season the card costs 27€ and in low season 24€. You might think that is high cost but once you add up the places you might want to visit, half of the activities will be free.

They’re taking the hobbits to Unterberg.

Purchasing the card was no brainer for me and my friend as we wanted to experience the cable cars activities. Only the Unterberg cable car to top of the mountain and back cost 24€. It is only one of the roughly 65 places you can experience with the Salzburg card. Believe me, you won’t think about twice after seeing below photos.

Amazing, huh? The air was crystal clear there and the views all around the mountain make you want to spend there time as much as possible. When you finally land back to the ground zero you will feel so small. So you might as well explore the old town of Salzburg. Compact and packed with boutiques, shops and restaurants, it’s fun to walk around and see where you end up. We ourselves ended up to eat tasty Salzburg burger from a local famous snack grill where even the president of Austria likes to eat out.

Even the old town of Salzburg has cliffs.

Now it’s time to say hello to Germany again and end up in München. Oktoberfest lured us here but there is plenty more things to explore than just lederhosen and big jugs (of delicious beer, that is). Have a great night!
