Long weekend in Salzburg Austria - Day 1

Weekend getaway in Salzburg Austria. Salzburg is best known from the movie "Sound of Music" so it is hard not to think of all the locations from the movie when visiting. From Dresden it to Salzburg it is about a 5 hour train ride.

One of many Churches/Cathedrals in Salzburg, this one is near Mirabell Gardens:
David in front of the fountain in Mirabell Gardens (seen in the Do-Re-Mi song from the Sound of Music):

Famous staircase in Mirabell Gardens, think of the Do-Re-Mi song from Sound of Music, as the Von Trapp children hop up and down the stairs to the different notes.

More Mirabell Gardens. Maria and children were seen running through here:
From Mirabell garden with Festung Hohensalzburg on the hill top in the background. The Castle is the located high on a hilltop make it the most visable landmark in Salzburg.

Entrance to Mirabell gardens (again this can be seen in the Sound of Music):


Augustiner brau house in Salzburg, Salzburg's famous brew house:

Inside Augustiner brau house, of course we had to have dinner and sample a beer:
