Germany and Austria Trip 2017 Part 3: Salzburg

Filed under: Personal — Administrator at 8:25 am on Thursday, October 5, 2017

I liked Germany, but I loved Austria. We spent several days in Salzburg, where they filmed The Sound of Music and where Mozart lived. I liked everything about the place.

The people there are so stylish. Is that Audrey Hepburn? No, she’s dead. It’s just a lady walking around.

This is the glorious church where Mozart was the organist. Can you imagine?

You can visit Mozart’s birth house. Here’s the clavichord where he composed Requiem and The Magic Feather.

We also saw a marionette show of The Sound of Music. I wasn’t expecting much, but it was quite powerful and impressive. This is a shot from the scene where the Nazis take over and Von Trapp sings Edelweiss.

Real edelweiss is an odd, muppety flower.
