As far as Austrian destinations go, there's always been just one city at the top of my list: Salzburg.
Yes, I know Austria is full of great cities and stunning scenery. But I've been obsessed with the idea of visiting Salzburg since before I even discovered my love for traveling.
Why, you ask? Well because of “The Sound of Music,” of course. The Hollywood-ized version of the von Trapp family's story was one of my favorite movies growing up, and I've always wanted to visit the city where the story took place.
But you know what? There's more to Salzburg than “Do Re Mi” and hills that are alive. In this post, I want to share with you the OTHER bits of Salzburg that charmed me. Like the Old Town with its old wrought iron signs and the street musicians who play Mozart and the great greenery-filled views that this city offers up.
Enjoy these sights of Salzburg:
(For my fellow “Sound of Music” fans, don't worry — I'll be putting together a “Sound of Music”-centric post for you early next week!)

*Note: I visited Salzburg as part of myBusabout trip around Europe. They provided me with transport on all 3 of their Europe loops, but all opinions of the destinations I visit are entirely my own!!
