HohenSalzburg – there is a castle above the clouds.

In the middle of winter, there is a place in Salzburg to escape the cloud. A funicular breaks through the misty barrier every ten minutes and takes frozen revellers to a place where the sun shines, snowy mountains gleam in glorious light, and scarves and gloves can be shed, the […]
