    Salzburg Local Customs

    During a visit to Salzburg in December 2010, my girlfriend and I took the opportunity to purchase pieces of Original Sachertorte from the cake shop adjoined to the city's Hotel Sacher. This internationally famous chocolate cake is only produced in Vienna (from where it first originated) and in Salzburg, so it was too good an opportunity to...

  • The Austrian People

    Salzburg Local Customs

    In Salzburg the people are very polite and all the people that I met spoke English (although some fluently, others only a bit). However, I think that when visiting another country you should try a few words in their language. So here are some basics in German: Hello/Hi - Guten Tag/Hallo Goodbye/Bye - Auf Widersehen/Tschuss Good Morning - Guten...

    Salzburg Local Customs

    While on the train from Munich to Salzburg in December 2010, my girlfriend and I found ourselves sitting across from a lady from Salzburg. Upon hearing that it was our first visit to Salzburg, she insisted that we must try the local speciality - Salzburger Nockerl.

I was quite surprised when I stumbled across this small, charming market right as I started my sightseeing tour at Schloss Mirabell. It was somehow funny to see the blooming flowers and the snow on the ground next to them on a crisp and sunny winter...

    Watch out for the parades - especially on sundays and special festivities like Easter-Sunday, when I took this picture. A band in tradtional costumes parading through the city, with great music like the Radetzky-Marsch

  • Coffee

    Salzburg Local Customs

    One of the truly Austrian habits is to spend some time weekly at the coffeehouse. "It's Austria!", they say. It's really relaxing to sit and drink nice coffee with a piece of cake! Isn't it marvelous!

    Salzburg Local Customs

    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...

  • Visiting Christian Churches

    Christian churches - be they Protestant, Orthodox, or Catholic - are a vital part of Europeýs cultural, artistic, architectural, and religious heritage, and as such you are likely (and I really recommend doing this:)) ) to visit many of them. However, most of them are even today not only major tourist attractions, but also religious sites where...
