The View of Salzburg City from the Hohensalzburg Castle

Salzburg is not only noted for its Alpine setting but also for setting of the "The Sound of Music". Have you seen it? If not browse it online and find a movie for it. It was really an inspiring one. It is also famous being the birthplace of  Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a great composer.

The Altstadt or  Old Town of Salzburg is listed in UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997. It is truly a nice place to visit. During my  third  visit in this city, I had the chance to go up to its castle known as the Hohensalzburg. From there, you can have a breathtaking view of the city and its surroundings. We took the funicular in going up.

My first visit in Salzburg was in June 2007. It was followed last  October 2008, July 2011 and the last one was in May 2012. I always love to go back to this beautiful city of Austria.
