A Day in Salzburg to Explore

Today was a day for exploring  Old Town Salzburg. What a beautiful city!  The Old Town was not damaged in WWII so the buildings are still original.   I went into a couple of  old ( really old) churches, one of which was St. Peters who still has the bakery in cellar where the monks used to make bread  – it is still made and sold today ( just not by monks).  The church cemetery  is behind the church. Each cemetery plot is billed for 10 years at a time. – if there is no one to pay —-well, out you go to make room for  someone who can pay.   Also rode another funicular, this one to the top of Hohensalzburg Fortress.  There were wonderful  views of the cityscape, especially with the  dusting of snow from the night before.  Of course, shopping on Getreidegasse Street is required when you come to visit Salzburg.   The house where Mozart  was born  is also located on this street. Many shops sell the dirndl and lederhosen, if you are in need of one, and there are many fun touristy shops as well as high end shops. Some of the shops owners display a touch of humor with their wares.   It was a fun day – even though it rained instead of snowed.
