Where we stayed: Studio 3B Salzburg old town (airbnb)

Length of stay: 3 days (Aug 25–28)

Favorite activity: simply walking and exploring

 

After a month of experiencing a heat wave in Germany, I was so excited for the cooler vibes of Salzburg in September. Days walking towards the mountains and through some wooded areas where a few leaves were starting to change, quickly relieved the FOMO I was feeling for the excitement of fall back in the States. Like many of my other favorites, this was a bit of a smaller town, allowing us to slow our days down a bit. We’d take our time in a cute little cafe, walk along the markets on the river, or watch the Sound of Music (a must) while it rained outside. Overall the scenery was beautiful and I loved the quaint feel.

 

Things we did:

  • visited Mirabellplatz, the iconic Sound of Music gardens
  • walked through the markets along the Salzach River
  • hiked up to Festung Hohensalzburg and explored the trails around it for beautiful views of the city and the mountains in the distance
  • walked down Getreidegasse, a cute street of shops and restaurants
  • ventured across the river to explore New Town after spending most of our time in Old Town

 

Tips and tricks:

  • Skip the expensive tours and explore the spots on your own. They’re all very accessible and close by.
  • Just start walking and exploring. Even the small, hidden streets are beautiful.
