Another favourite place of mine, chocolate box villages on the hillsides and a link to The Sound of Music, what more could you want?
I've visited Austria in the summer for the lakes and mountains season, as a city-break and in the ski season and equally love it for different reasons. So much so, we got married here in the snow in the Bavarian-style town hall in Zell-am-See.
I hold very fond memories of a magical week in the snow with 64 of our friends and family. We stayed in the Romantik Hotel, and it certainly played up to it's name sake with a waterbed and Danish fire in the wedding suite and a sumptuous wedding breakfast with mulled wine in a cauldron on arrival for all our guests. Unforgettable!
Salzburg is a fine location for a city break. Salzburg fortress, Hohensalzburg, offers fabulous views from the top over the city of Salzburg and into the hills of the surrounding area. TIP: Plan your trip when music concerts are at the fortress and celebrate the birth place of Mozart.
