Salzburg, Austria

Salzburg: the city of music. The city where music is always in the air!

Listed as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site, the fourth largest city in Austria offers magical sceneries with the backdrop of the Alps that scrape the sky. The churches, the squares, the narrow cobbled lanes…
First thing to notice while wandering around town is the magical atmosphere that’s created by the harmony of the classical music that whisks out of every single corner of the side streets.
This Baroque Old Town is deservedly called the “Rome of the North” due to its dramatic architectural layout.

Must-Visit: Hohensalzburg Fortress, Mirabell Palace and Gardens, the DomQuartier, Mozart’s Residence and the banks of the Salzach River (better on a sunny day).

Must-Dine: Zum Fidelen Affen, a restaurant with an amazing atmosphere, cosy wood-panelled walls and incredibly delicious local food. And beer, of course 😉

A Weekend in Munich

It’s all about beer, pretzels and wursts! We were lucky enough to visit this lovely city over a sunny weekend and get the chance to wander around Marienplatz, this pretty medieval square in the heart of Munich. There are always new things to discover behind the hustle and bustle of the busy roads…!

It’s said that nearly under every City Hall of Germany it’s possible that you’ll find a hot-spot restaurant that serves traditional bavarian food and of course LOTS of beer! In this case we’re talking about “Ratskeller” which, trust me, is a must!

“Fischbrunnen” in Marienplatz

Talking about beer, don’t forget to have a fresh pretzel with a typical cold 1litre beer-mug in the world’s most famous beer hall, “Hofbräuhaus”. Touristy Bavarian experience: loud german live music & plenty of beer!

When the sun goes down, the perfect place for a truly satisfying cocktail experience is at Zephyrs bar in Baader Strasse. If you’re into dancing you should definitely go to the famous P1 Club (late at night). The pizza is amazing, too! 😝🍕

Science and technology enthusiast? Then be sure to pay a visit to the Deutsches Museum which features an impressive collection of S&T exhibits.

I would also highly recommend a visit to the BMW Museum and BMW Welt –if you’re into cars of course– where you can explore the history of the famed car manufacturer and get a glimpse into its future.

Winter in Kitz

Kitzbühel, a small town near Tyrol which is located in the heart of the Austrian Alps, is considered to be one of the most best-known winter holiday resorts of Austria.

Built on a long ridge of hills, the old town of Kitzbühel offers spectacular sceneries with the highlight of the colourful traditional town houses. As it’s famous for its magical passageways and breathtaking views, I would highly recommend you to take a horse & carriage ride for a more romantic tour around town.

It’s said that “the glamour of the big wide world is reflected in Kitzbühel in a smaller version”. Charming cafés, gourmet restaurants, lively nightlife and exclusive shopping. The outstanding beauty of the Alps will never disappoint you, be sure about it! 😉

P.S. Don’t forget to try some of the Tyrollean traditional dishes such as the Kasspatzln (cheesy gnocchi) and of course the typical Wiener Schnitzel.
