Winterly Salzburg

Hello everybody,

I hope all of you had wonderful Christmas, Santa Claus or Christkind brought you some nice presents and your bellies are still happily filled with Christmas delights and cookies... :)
Some weeks ago I went to Salzburg, probably Austria's second most known city (Mozart, Sound of Music, Salzburg Festival etc.), for an appointment, a little sighseeing and some shopping. Salzburg is actually a lovely city with an impressive old town although I probably wouldn't like to live there permanently as it's a little too posh for me. Nevertheless for a day trip (or two, or three ;) ) it's quite perfect and there are some really cool places within the town boudaries as well. 

I started the day with a relaxed and really tasty breakfast at Republic Café which is located in the building of the former Stadtkino ("city cinema") and is not only a café but also one of Salzburg's coolest concert and party locations.   



On my way to Republic Café I passed the beautiful Salzach, the river that passes through Salzburg. The castle you can see on the hill is Fortress Hohensalzburg which was built in 1077 and is the biggest complete extant castle in Middle Europe.


Just like on Paris' Pont Neuf you can also find locks on Salzburg's Markatsteg.


The Großes Festspielhaus is one of famous Salzburg's Festival most important venues. It was opened in 1960 with a performance of Richard Strauss' "Der Rosenkavalier" and holds seats for 2179 people (more details can be found here). 




Salzburg's most famous shopping street is Getreidegasse where you can find all stores of well known brands such as Louis Vuitton, Hallhuber, Mango etc. If you are looking for something more individual you should also check out Getreidegasse's side roads where you can find really nice small boutiques as well. One of them is Crai, a small and very colourful store where you can find dresses, shoes, handbags and accessories, also from green brands such as Armed Angels.  





What you definitely shouldn't miss is the Mirabellgarten, the famous garden of Mirabell Palace, which is even beautiful in winter. 



If you are gettin hungry after all this running around you can check out Café Fingerlos, a rather typical Austrian café where you can get very good soups and snacks, a (great) variety of breakfast variations (no worries, you can also breakfast in the afternoon there) and lots of very good pastries, such as this chestnut cupcake you see below. Yummy!!
