Walking around Salzburg was literally like walking around a made up town from and old Disney movie.  Think little boutiques, beautiful little houses, narrow streets and stunning architecture in general. 

It is a pretty small town, so one day is more than enough. We took a train in the morning from Vienna and two hours later we arrived to Salzburg, the place where Mozart was born many years ago. Tickets are not too expensive, we bought them the night before and paid around 40€ so I imagine if you buy them in advance they will be even cheaper.

The first thing we did is walk from the train station to a park/hill called Kapuzineberg. The walk took around one hour (including time for photos...), around 15 min to reach the entrance of the park and 45 min to reach the top. Whilst it is uphill all the time, it is very easy and you don't even need to wear trainers. You get a really nice view of Salzburg on the way and loads of photos opportunities and you know, you gotta get those 10,0000 daily steps in. It is definitely worth it! 

Then we went to the Old Town which was absolutely breathtaking. To be honest, there is not much to do other than walk around, enjoy the cute buildings and indulge in some creamy ice cream. So that's what we did, soaking up the sun. 

Mozart's house is also a must-see, we decided not to go in because, as much as I love Mozart and his music, I didn't really feel like paying to see his piano or his bedroom. But you do you.

Before going back to Vienna, we went to the Mirabell Palace and Gardens which were the most stunning gardens I have ever seen, and I am not exaggerating. If you walk through the gardens and then go up the stairs at the end, you will get a breathtaking view of the gardens, the palace and Salzburg's castle in the distance. It genuinely looks like you are in a movie set. We spent a good hour or so just sitting and enjoying the view - wondering what we had done to deserve something so beautiful. 

Finally, we made our way back to Vienna and had a quiet evening to re-charge for another day of exploring.
