My motto? Spontaneous trips are the best! Unexpectedly I did a one-day stopover in Austria’s beauty Salzburg before heading to Germany for the Christmas days.
A soft line of pastel mountains awaited me right at the airport early in the morning. The perfect start for a city tour!
Salzburg surprised me with a merely endless amount of picturesque buildings – from a bus stop to the dome.
And as the weather could not have been any better I hit the road up to the fortress, enjoying a breathtaking view over Salzburg.
And of course, I also had to try some traditional Kaiserschmarrn, an Austrian dessert I hadn’t had in some ten years.
When the sun began to set, I strolled the old-fashioned, rustic shopping streets – with famous Getreidegasse leading the way.
Some sunny hours and many strolls later it was time again to take the plane back to the north with the Alps in my back.
