Salzburg Views from the Couch (1)

Via couchsurfing I receive visitors in Salzburg on a quite regular base.  We often discuss the main attractions of Salzburg or the main reasons to come. Most guests are either searching Mozart’s footprints or the search traces of “Sound of Music”. But still, I wanted to know, the main impressions of Salzburg. And therefore I started a new project. All my couchsurfing guests are asked to send my a few photos of Salzburg, and describe them in a short paragraph.

We start with Jason from Australia, who has been living in London for the last year, and has now started a five month Europe trip, before returning to Australia.  Here are his photos and the descriptions:

There are some windows in one of the chambers of the palace in Salzburg which are glazed with a polarising, pinkish plastic. I do not know why this is, but the city has a strange, dusky glow when photographed through these windows. It is not real, but interesting none

Fuschlsee and the surrounding countryside were so beautiful, but I could not seem to capture this on camera. This photo is the closest I could come; the mountains, woods, countryside and lake come together here and make a very peaceful scene.

If you look in the middle of the photo, you can see the palace and stretching out below the city area south of this hill. It is a beautifully located city with many wooded hills in and around the city which help you forget the crowds.


  1. One more important component is that if you are a senior citizen, travel insurance for pensioners is something you need to really contemplate. The more mature you are, the more at risk you are for permitting something undesirable happen to you while in foreign countries. If you are not really covered by a few comprehensive insurance, you could have several serious complications. Thanks for discussing your ideas on this blog.
