salzburg is quaint and charming and small. dropped by for a day and a half and only saw outdoor sights but not the bigger museums -which is unfortunate because we love seeing works of the masters aside from all the architecture and food.
we did try catching some of the nearby shoot locations of robert wise’s the sound of music, starring julie andrews and christopher plummer.
we stumbled into the abbey from TSOM by accident and i knew right away it was the same one.
the famous mirabelle garden was still open but this section’s gate was already closed so we couldnt act out that finale of do-re-mi.
the escape from the nazis after the farewell performance at the cemetary was not shot here in st. patrick’s but definitely was the inspiration. they copied the gates and tombstones in a studio.
also checked out the other plazas and streets where they shot at. bought a music box playing eidelweiss for my aunt who’s a huge fan of the film.
got around mozartplatz and also visited where he was born and raised. apparently the music scene in salzburg was too small for mozart so he left for vienna and stay there.
so off we go to vienna!
