Salzburg is just two hours away by train from Munich. It's the birthplace of Mozart and where Sound of Music originate from, but the best about Salzburg is her picturesque view of the Alps from the top which is less than 30 minutes climb.

Amazing city. Great for wandering by foot or take a bus and see the salt mines. Of course you can't miss the gardens and Sound of Music tour. Yeah. We stayed at NH hotels but lots of great options. Apple streusel for the sweet tooth can't be beat!!
