|The quaint town of Innsbruck|
One morning we visited a local town called Innsbruck, that was incredibly picturesque and offered more stunning views of the colorful landscape and architecture. I always like to try to find an unique offering at foreign McDonald's, and I did just that by trying an apple pastry at a local McDonald's.
Salzburg is most notable for being the birthplace of Mozart and the site of many of the scenes in Sound of Music. We visited Mozart's home, and during a walking tour of the city we were able to see many of the backdrops of the movie. We also later took a short bus ride to Mondsee to see St. Michael's Basilica, which is where the wedding scene took place.
We ended the stay in Salzburg by taking a Danube river cruise to our next destination: Vienna!
