#779 Day Three - Salzburg

It is still October 8 and there a couple more places to visit.

Maryann planned for us to stop by the Augustinerabrau brewery for a time to rest and get a drink.  As you can see, we were not alone.

After that refreshing libation we visited the cemetery located  in shadows of Fortress Hohensalzburg. It was here that the escape from Austria scene from The Sound of Music was shot. It certainly looked different in daylight and not on the screen.

Note the date on the first tombstone. Apparently remains are removed from the cemetery and placed in the crypt from time to time. We found this quite interesting.

We also strolled through Altstadt. The architecture, building decorations, and sculptures are  quite beautiful.

This is the last of the Salzburg photos. From here we went on to Vienna. We spent three days there, so you can imagine it will take a few posting to do that visit justice. Stay tuned.

Hello Jack ~~ Very interesting post and the photos are magnificent. Thanks for your comments and I am relieved with the scan results. Glad you liked my flowers - I do too. That blonde wasn't so dumb, who can work in the dark?
Take care, Regards, Merle.
