Cruising Previous Seventy: The Interior Journeys: Are a Few Hours Sufficient to Get pleasure from a Metropolis: Vienna and Salzburg

Are A Few
Hours Sufficient to Get pleasure from a Metropolis?

We had been
already in Innsbruck, Austria so why not go to Vienna and Salzburg, too? Vienna
is 2 hours east of Salzburg, which is 2 hours east of Innsbruck. The
answer was easy. Depart Innsbruck by 7:30 am, arrive in Vienna by 11:30 am, and
retire in a Viennese Airbnb by 6:30 pm, giving us seven sight-seeing hours. The
following day, we depart at 8 am, arrive in Salzburg at 10, and head again to
Innsbruck at 5 pm, giving us seven hours, too. Or so we thought.

Case of Vienna

We misplaced every
different on the Innsbruck Hauptbahnhof (Important Railway Station). As quickly as we discovered
one another once more, we jumped onto the prepare that was leaving. When the conductor
checked our tickets, he advised us we had been going to Munich, within the reverse
route! We reached Vienna at 1:30 pm and had solely 5 hours to benefit from the metropolis
of two.6 million!

We nonetheless
coated fairly a couple of landmarks (StephenPlatz, Mozart Haus, KarlsKirche,
Secession Constructing, Hofburg Palace, Museum Quartier), however we had been working from
one to the opposite with simply time to take images. It was not easy methods to take pleasure in a metropolis.
Lengthy traces on the Café Sacher prevented us from tasting the unique Sacher
torte, and we ended up having these ubiquitous puffers being offered on the
sidewalks for lunch.

On the finish
of our frenzied stroll, we had a fast dinner at Café Raymond, having fun with some wine
and a slice of, albeit not the unique, sacher torte. Our Airbnb was solely 4
subway stops away, so we slept nicely however felt unhappy. Even seven hours wouldn’t have
been sufficient for the Viennese attract.

Case of Salzburg

However we had seven
hours in Salzburg, smaller with a inhabitants of 150,000. From the Hauptbahnhof,
we walked to the Mirabell Palace on the way in which to the Outdated City Sq.. It was at
this stunning palace and backyard the place Maria (Julie Andrews) and the von Trapp
youngsters sang Do Re Mi.  

Throughout from
the Palace, there was a raging Thursday farmer’s market on the Church Plaza. How
fortunate may we be? It was a haven for native meals, produce, crops, and even dry
items. We didn’t depart till Invoice had a model of the well-known apple strudel
and I bought a 15-euro leather-based purse.

A bridge glistening
from the variety of love locks (the solar shone on it good) led on to 9
Getreidegasse the place Mozart was born. Only a block away is the historic heart
of Salzburg known as Residence Platz, a big stately sq. named after the
Residence of the Prince-Archbishop of Salzburg. In entrance of the constructing,
beside the Cathedral, and in the course of the Sq. is the gorgeous
Residenzbrunnen fountain, one other level within the Sound of Music Tour.

The Salzburg
Cathedral, St. Peter’s Abbey, and the Residential Constructing outline the stunning Dom
Platz the place carriages might be employed for excursions. Blissful newlyweds had been doing it at
the time. You possibly can see the Salzburg Fortress up the hill (you may also see it
from the Mirabel).Lastly, aA big golden ball embellished the attention-grabbing craft

The Guests
Data Middle at Mozart Platz (with a statue of the person) really useful
Swelter’s for an early dinner. My husband had wiener schnitzel whereas I beloved my
griesnockerlsupp. Wine capped our reminiscences of the Sound of Music and Mozart, road
meals and procuring, and the love bridge. 

Sure, we
loved Salzburg and felt we didn’t miss a factor. But when a metropolis is massive, it
could be higher to permit for extra time. We didn’t remorse visiting Vienna, nonetheless,
since we might not move that means once more, however we actually loved Salzburg a complete
lot extra.
