Discovering Residenzplatz, Salzburg 

Where : Residenzplatz, Salzburg  When visiting Salzburg, consider visiting Residenzplatz.  Which is one of the famous squares to visit in the Old Town.  This is exactly where the residence building of the Prince Archbishops of Salzburg and the Salzburg Cathedral are located. This is a great location to visit, here's why. First, the architecture and history bring charm to the square.  Second, the Residenz Fountain is considered one of the most significant baroque monuments in Europe.  The Italian sculptor, Tommaso di Garone is the craftsman behind it all.

Discovering Salzburg Cathedral

Where : Salzburg Cathedral We stopped at the Salzburg Cathedral on our way to Hohensalzburg.  This Cathedral was built around the 17th century and has a beautiful Baroque style.  Seems like this is Serge's idea of most beautiful church he's visited in Europe. You will find the Cathedral in the Old Town at the end of Getreidegasse or on the way to Hohensalzburg.  This area is quite touristic and a great place to take crafty pictures.  Like most churches in Europe, there is no need to pay to enter.  You can leave a donation if you want to contribute to the upkeep and maintenance. The church is dedicated to Saint Rupert and Saint Virgil, both patron saints of the city

Discovering Getreidegasse, Salzburg

Where : Getreidegasse, Salzburg We really enjoyed our stroll down Getreidegasse, located int the historic old town.  Its by far one of the most visited and busiest streets in the city.  It boasts many souvenir shops, from chocolates to Mozart related gadgets, to chic stores like Louis Vuitton.  However, all shops have one thing in common.  They all have a rich, elegant iron guild sign with their store names.  This we found out, is mandatory! According to Wikipedia, Getreidegasse is also the birthplace of Worfgang Amadeus Mozart.  He lived at No. 9 until the age of 17.  This is why you will find yourself passing in front of Mozart gift shops, Mozart Café, Mozart Museum and alas his monument.

Discovering Mirabell gardens, Salzburg

Where : Mirabell gardens, Salzburg If you have the impression that Salzburg is a small city, you are correct in thinking so.  Consider this, we walked 5 min from the train station to our hotel and another 12 minutes to Mirabell Palace.  Continuing on this path will get you to the Historic town, in approximately 20 minutes.  It's not the smallest city we've visited and we regret not booking at least 2 nights in Salzburg. If you are used to discovering the cities by foot, you will love Salzburg!  It's quite easy to walk from one monument or landmark to another.  There is an abundance of Hop on Hop off tours if you prefer motorized or organized tours.  Actually, from what

Where : Asam Church, Munich Discovering Asam Kirche.  Asam Church was on our list to visit while in Munich.  It lived up to the challenge!  Feel free to Google the whereabouts of the church and visit directly.  Or perhaps take the Old Town scenic route to discover the surroundings. It was one of the most impressive Baroque church we saw in Europe. The Asam Church facade is really beautiful and once you step foot inside it's breathtaking.  Rich in details inside, it will be difficult to stay just a few minutes.  We were mesmerized inside with the decor, paintings and sculptures. According to Wikipedia, the church was built from 1733 to 1746 by brothers sculptor Egid Quirin Asam, and painter

Discovering Jungfrau, Switzerland

Where : Jungfrau Mountains, Switzerland Jungfrau is a must see while visiting Interlaken in Switzerland.  To recap, Harder Kulm is the top of Interlaken but Jungfrau is the top of Europe! The best way there is by train.  It leaves Interlaken Est or West in direction to Jungfrau and takes around 2h10min.  For those with EuRail passes, you will have to dish out extra money but it's worth it.  The train ride might seem long but it's simply breathtaking. You might wonder which side of the train offers better views, well it's a toss us.  However, if you want to see the Staubbach Falls as you ride through Lauterbrunnen, chose the right side of the train.  The falls are at
