2010 Trip -19th September
So we headed to Linz during the night and went straight off the boat and headed to Salzburg via Mondsee. Mondsee was the place of the church from the Sound of Music. Along with other Sound of Music sights in Salzburg we saw where Mozart was born and lived. Beautiful sunny day but a little chilly in the Austrian Alp area. Gorgeous scenery. So picturesque as we then travelled by bus across the Austrian/Bavarian (German) border to Passau. We joined the boat again here. After dinner we were entertained by a group called "Sounds of Austria" - a little bit of Mozart opera, a little folk music and of course songs from "The Sound of Music".
