Salzburg, or Salt Castle, one of the largest cities in Austria and home to the famous Mozart and Christopher Doppler. It was this city, in its beautiful Alpine setting, that the crew of The Sound of Music filmed their American musical movie in 1965. The movie featured some of the most important landmarks of Salzburg. Although famous for Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and his fine work, it is also home to Christian Doppler, a mathematician and physicist who proposed the Doppler shift or the Doppler effect in Prague in the 1800s. Here are some photos from Salzburg and its Altstadt (old town)

Beautiful is this city with its Salzach River crossing through it just to add more to its beauty. Take a walk down the Mirabell Palace and Gardens, have an original Sacher Torte or the very famous Mozartkugel. I challenge you not to fall in love with any of those. I leave you with some more pictures of the Mirabellgarten.
