Rainy days in Saltzburg
Another day and another rainy but always magical day in Saltzburg. It really is one of the most beautiful places to visit in any season but I can’t help but feel like we got super lucky to see it shrouded by magical fog everyday. The rain however I could have done without.
After a lovely breakfast at our hotel, where they serve the famous sacher torte for breakfast (winning at life or what!?) we headed out for another rainy day in Saltzburg.
We headed down to the Getreidegasse in the heart of Salzburg’s Old City. It is the quintessential Austrian scene that had me pining to visit. I just love all of the ornamental shop signs with their opulent swirly designs which I discovered were all handmade.
The stores are full of traditional items like traditional Austrian clothing and antiques so its a little bit more special than your average high street.
Whilst on the way to lunch we also found this lovely street where the houses are built into the mountains whcih reminded me of Setenil de las Bodegas in Andalusia
In the afternoon we made our way to St. Peter Stiftskulinarium for some lunch. Not only is it one of the oldest restaurants in Europe, It is very cute and was a welcome sanctuary from the rainly cold afternoon with its roaring fireplaces and cosy spaces.
We took a table by the window and cosied in for the afternoon.
It was at this point that once again my camera decided to fog up, but still I persevered and tried to capture what I could.
I ordered the duck with risotto, which just divine and exactly what I needed after a long morning exploring Saltzburg.
The hubb's ordered the schnitzel with cranberry sauce, which I can vouch for its deliciousness as I tried some myself.
And we finished with the most incredible dessert ever. We ordered the famous Salzburger Nockerl, which was the most unique and incredible dessert iv ever laid my eyes on. Made for sharing and as absolutely gorgeous as it was we couldn't even make a dent in this baby, depite all of our best intentions. If you ever visit Austria, I dare you not to try it.
I sincerely couldn't recommend St. Peter Stiftskulinarium enough, it was a total highlight from our trip to Saltzburg.
After lunch we headed out to the Mirabell Gardens. Mirabell is a woman’s name from Italy, a compilation of two words: mirabile “admirable” and bella “beautiful”.
You might recognize the gardens from the sound of music, and they are every bit as wonderful as they are on the big screen.In the film, Maria and the children dance around the Pegasus Fountain in front of the palace, singing.
