jn82’s Epic Adventure

Day 69 [8 Apr 09] – Salzburg

Posted in Salzburg by jn82 on April 8, 2009

Another very lazy day, only got out of the hotel after noon. Think after two months of travelling, my body is really feeling it and some days all I want to do is stay in and do nothing. The only place we went to today was Festung Hohensalzburg (Hohensalzburg Castle), the most significant landmark in Salzburg. The castle sits on a hill and overlooks the entire city, and is one of the largest castles in Europe.

Festung Hohensalzburg.

The amazing view of Salzburg from the castle.

There were a few rooms on display within the castle buildings, but I did not find them particularly interesting. We had a look around some of the old state rooms, the Rainermuseum (military museum) and the Burgmuseum (weapons, furniture, torture devices).

We headed out of the castle back into the old city around 5pm, and bought McDonalds back to the hotel for an early dinner.

Off to Ljubljana in Slovenia tomorrow morning.

Today’s pictures here.
