Photo Scrapbook: Salzburg, Part I

Salzburg celebrates the life and music of Mozart. After touring the Mozart Residence, we walked out back to sit in the courtyard behind the house.

Doug and I walked through the Mirabell Gardens, laid out in the 18th century, daily during our 3-night stay in Salzburg. The first night there we walked from the Hotel Imlauer to a wonderful violin concert in the Mirabell Palace Schlosskonzert.

Although we didn't take an official "Sound of Music" tour, visitors to Salzburg can't overlook the significance of "The Sound of Music" when visiting the beautiful countryside outside of the city. The front exterior of Leopoldskron Palace, built in 1736, was used as the Trapp family home. After WW II, Harvard University invested in renovations to Leopoldskron Palace; today it's a conference center.
