Europe Day 9: The Sound of Music in Salzburg, AUSTRIA

25 Dec 2006

A very quiet and leisurely Christmas. We spent our morning visiting the filming sites of the famous movie "Sound of Music" and hear about the authentic history of Maria von Trapp's family. Then, we hopped on to a nicely decorated horse carriage through the beautiful village.

It's a cold, foggy morning


There was frost everywhere



Trees were decorated with pressies


Nice aye?


Christmas stalls


The frozen lake


Leopoldskron Castle, which was used as the Trapp family's house in the film.


A convent


Mr. Rudolph seems pretty slack and lazy. Must be the pressie delivery. Hehe


Gazebo from "Sound of music" (16 going on 17)






Hohensalzburg Fortress

Salzburg is even more striking when it is covered with thick white snow. Too bad it was their warmest winter when we were there. :(
