Where I stayed
We arrived at the station got some money out of the ATM and got our Salzburg cards, then walked around trying to find our hotel
Anyway, after a big day of traveling we still wanted to see the town. We went down the street south for a few blocks until we came to a cafe next to the Salzburg Congress. We were both so hungry from all the traveling- (side note: they have sparkling water in Europe that they love. Its carbonated water and it is nasty, but they like it. You have to ask for still water or novas, otherwise they give you that nasty stuff which is what happened to me on the train. The cafes kitchen closed at 2pm, we just ordered several small items, and Mandy had a delicious coffee flavored cappuccino, some whip cream shake type of drink.
e stayed on the north side of the river that day and walked around the shops, eventually walking into a graveyard in the middle of town and looked at all the elaborate tombstones, dating back to the 1500's. The grave site was located at St. Sebastian's Church. We found a staircase that took us straight up the hill between the buildings. Halfway up, there was a church, St.Johns church on Imburg Mountain, were there was a man playing the organ in the balcony. A very small beautiful church. We continued on up to the mountain and came to the Church and Monastery of the Capuchin Monks. It is a beautiful view from the top of the mountain towards the castle. We walked around there for a while before heading back down. On the way back to the hotel we stopped and had dinner at this Italian place where we had pizza with banana peppers on it. So far every pizza we have had out here had been made in a wood burning oven, which makes the crust awesome.
After dinner we went back to the hotel and crashed early, 8:30pm, after a LONG day!!
