Trip Report Bored in Salzburg

Jump to last reply

Believe it or not, I was bored in Salzburg. I tried, really I did, to make it fun & interesting.

We were there 4 nights and the hotel, Bergland, was reasonably priced and the rooms was large and modern. The bathroom was also very spacious. The hotel, which serves breakfast only, was about 20 min. away from the city center. We got bus tickets so we often took the bus instead.

We saw the very interesting fortress, walked the town center many times, did the Mirabell gardens, stopped in the Augustiner Brewery and the Weisse, which is popular among the locals. We visited St. Giglen on Wolfgangsee (recommended) and did the Salzmine day trip. But the lack of flowers in the town center and the lack of street entertainment kept us from feeling the magic of the place.

We really liked the Hellbrunn fountain tour, with its magical fountains and historical pieces. I'd say that was the highlight for me, as well as the saltmines.

Am I the only one who failed to hear how the hills are alive in Salzburg?
