When in salzburg you have to...
When in salzburg you have to go see Mozarts house and the garden where they filmed parts of 'sound of music'. They have a Brewery/beerhall that is every man's dream, an absolute must see. Best memory would have to be the night life. Lots of pubs all on the main drag, lots of people out and about till all hours of the night.
This photo was taken by my friend Bruno, a Salzburg native that I knew from the Net.
...We wanted to go up the Castle but Bruno said there's a short cut to the Castle....; Taking the steps in this nice forested hill...I was a bit bush....Bruno took a photo of that moment....
Talk with younger Austrians
Since most elderly Salzburgians are hesitant to speak English, try striking up conversation with the younger generation. They are usually very willing to talk with you. It's good practice for their mandatory English classes in school.
A city of music
You know that Salzburg is a city of (mostly classical) music, don't ya? If not you'll quickly learn from the musicians playing on the streets. Even in cold winter.
This one on the picture played under one of the arcades adjacent to the cathedral. He didn't get a lot of attention and I thought he played for his own enjoyment which was a shame - he did pretty well.
