Rothenburg, Germany to Salzburg, Austria
This was our last morning in Rothenburg. After we packed and ate breakfast, we checked out and were on our way to Austria. It took about 4 hours for the trip and it was cloudy most of the way with an occasional shower. It’s surprising how fast the cars travel on the autobahn -- you have to make sure you’re not slowing them down!
We checked into our room at the Cordial Theatrehotel. Everything is similar to where we were. In fact, you would think we were still in Germany. After unpacking and resting for awhile, we ate dinner downstairs in the hotel restaurant.
We plan on seeing the sights in Salzburg, Austria and also in Berchtesgaden, Germany, among other places. We have tickets for the Sound of Salzburg dinner show for tomorrow night; and for Sunday night, we’re going to the Mozart dinner concert. Salzburg is celebrating Mozart’s 250th birthday all this year.
Looking forward to seeing it all and hopefully the weather will cooperate.
