Day 2 of the tour: Salzburg

Leaving Hallstatt was made a lot easier than expected by the rain that came pouring down through the night and morning. So we happily got on our dry bus and left for Salzburg. After a short 1,5 hour drive, we arrived at our hotel and checked in. Once everyone was settled in, we headed into the main part of the town to visit the house Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born in. It now houses a musem about his family, life and work.

Then, we began our ascent to the Hohensalzburg Fortress, which sits on a hill. The sun was out and it was incredibly hot, so by the time we arrived at the top we were all drenched in sweat. Though the tour through the fortress made the walk worth it, everyone was also quite happy to wander through town in smaller groups and take a shower, before our delicious traditionally Austrian dinner to end the day. Tomorrow, we are off the Innsbruck.
