Salzburg

We only had a few hours in which to explore Salzburg and it was essential that we made the best use of our time.
We started in Mozartplatz with the statue of Mozart. Nearby is the wonderful Baroque Residenz Fountain with the rearing horses spouting water.
After visiting the house where Mozart was born we crossed over the river to visit the Mirabelle Gardens.
It was in these gardens by the Pegasus statue that the Do- Rey-Me scene from the Sound of Music was filmed.

About crosbyman66

My aim is to create a photo diary of my walks and my travels. I have two main hobbies, walking and photography and these complement each other. I am a senior citizen, what used to be called an old age pensioner, but I don't feel old. Since retirement I have had more time to pursue my hobbies and the opportunity to travel more. My philosophy now is - Do what you can, while you can. My other interests are fine wines and keeping fit. These may not complement each other but keep me happy.
