Trip Highlights

  • Schlosspark HellbrunnPalace built in the 1600’s, complete with picturesque park and grounds. Famed for being the home of the ’16 going on 17′ pavilion from the film The Sound of Music.

    Schlosspark Hellbrunn, Salzburg. 

     

  • Untersberg – Walking on a trail from the aforementioned Schlosspark Hellbrunn you come to an open trail that gives spectacular views over Mount Watzmann and Untersberg which dominates the surrounding skyline.

  • Hohensalzburg Castle / Salzburg Fortress – impossible to miss as it sits atop a hill in the centre of Salzburg. I didn’t do it but you can take a walk up the fortress itself for views over the city.

  • Belvedere Palace (Vienna) – there are a number of grand Castles and Palaces in Vienna, but this is one of the more majestic.

  • Hundertwasserhaus (Vienna)  – architecture gone mad. Loved the atheistic of this house but there isn’t a whole lot to explore other than to take in all the craziness.
