We had a brilliant weekend. The christmas markets opened the day we arrived so we saw Salzburg in full festive spirit. Definitely one of the most beautiful cities I have seen. We throughly enjoyed our short break here with an amazing hotel that recommended a local restaurant serving the most fantastic local food and beer. We bought some of the bottles to take home with us it was that good. They brew it on site!
We walked the city in a day taking in the sights and view from the fort on the Western most side of the city and walked along the ridgeline to the art museum at the other end for lunch.
We joined in the festive spirit and got tiddly on the mulled wine, at the chocolate covered cakey things, jacket potatoes filled with delish fillings and bought lots of goodies to take home.
