But Salzburg isn't quite done taking our breaths away. In the fading light of twilight, we make our way to the riverbank, and there, we find the shimmering lights of the city and the Hohensalzburg Fortress reflected upon the lavender mist water. The sky is a mauve-indigo gradient, and to the left, more modern edifices stain the river with gold and royal blue. People say that Vienna, Innsbruck, and Hallstatt are the most beautiful cities in Austria, but how could anything be lovelier than this baroque masterpiece in the lap of Alpine grandeur? If music were a place, it would be Salzburg.
