It start when we all woke up at 3am in Salzburg. The sky was still dark. I couldn’t sleep well the first night. I was 6 hours behind Singapore time.
And the trail led us to the most beautiful sight of the city. 7am local time the sun is already shining brightly over the city. The place was quiet, only a few people passing by doing their morning exercise.
It was difficult to find a carpark in town. All the street side carpark allows you to park your car for two hours with the ticket machine. So if you want to stay longer you need to come back every two hours to pay for the ticket. Euro 2 per hour. City garage parking is available too, pay when you exit Euro3 per hour.
Remember The Sound of Music where Maria taking the children outside and taught them to sing Do Re Mi? This is the place where they dancing around the Pegasus Fountain.
Below is where they sing the last part of the song with Maria hit the high key note.
It was a memorable journey visiting the film location of the famous movie that my Father make me watch.
Most of the sightseeing places are in the central, it can be easily reach on foot. From Mirabell Garden we walked to Old Town crossing a pedestrian bridge over the river. And not surprisingly to see locks on the bridge. Haha. It’s a trend thing all around the world.
On the next street at Getreidegasse street, you will find Mozart’s birth place at No9 which is now a museum.
To be honest I was lost of direction because I don’t have data with me but somehow as I walked I found myself near to Residenzplatz where the Horse Bath fountain is where Maria singing “I have a confidence in me” she splash water from the bath.
If you are standing in front of the Cathedral from Residenzplatz, Domplatz is at your northeast position.
The movie also take place in several other locations such as Hellbrunn Garden where the glass Gazebo is.
