Today we spent discovering every corner of Salzburg. This city was amazing. It is a UNESCO city so preserved to its historical state very well. Salzburg is known for Sound Of Music and it being Mozart's home. There are several other treasures in this city but those two are what draw people in the most.
We started the day at the Hellbrunn Castle. Scenes of Sound of Music were filmed here. We also learned of the Prince-ArchBishop Sittikus who actually lived there. He had a great sense of humor and had trick fountains through the whole property. Our guide Jessica showed us all the fun tricks he played on his guests.
Our last stop at this Hellbrunn Castle was of the famous gazebo in Sound of Music where Liesl and Rolf sang "I am 16 going on 17". Only Adventures By Disney has permission and the license with Hellbrunns Castle to allow guests inside. It was definitely a *Magical Moment* for this Sound of Music fan!
After lunch our two Adventure guides surprised us by dressing up in their "play clothes". It was such a fun surprise as we also got to start our private tour with a descendant of the Von Trapp family. We went to several sites that you may recognize from the movie.
Salzburg is also home to St Peters cathedral which is a replica of the cathedral in Rome. It was gorgeous!
Mozart was born here in Salzburg. We walked by his home in the middle of the city. There are farmers markets and small shops throughout the town center too. Dinner was reserved in a private ballroom in the oldest restaurant in the world. It opened in the year 803! We were serenaded by a duo that played Mozart's arrangements.
