We got in to Salzburg just before 9 am and as luck would have it, our room was already ready so we could see our room and leave our things before setting out on a morning adventure.

The room is the nicest one we have had this whole trip-I'm going to guess it will be the winner in the end. It's the size of a small suite with an entry and hallway. We have two windows with views of the city and the river.

We spent the morning shopping in Alter Markt and along Getreidegasse. We stopped for lunch at an open market along the way. Lunch was a hot dog and salty pretzel-yummy, but pretty carb-filled. After lunch we went to the Museum of Modern Art-Rupertinum and we saw the house where Mozart was born. The afternoon was filled with a Sound of Music tour. We were taken to sites in and around Salzburg where the movie was filmed. We even went to a small town called Mondsee to see the church where Maria and Capt. Von Trapp were married in the movie.

This evening we ate at a restaurant which had been a favourite of Schubert and Mozart. Then we walked along the river and visited a few other local monuments.

Again, crazy people booked our train from Salzburg to Prague for 5:45 tomorrow morning so it's another early night.
