During my winter travels in Europe 6 months ago I visited Innsbruck, Salzburg and Vienna, Austria.

Our bus journey from Rome to Innsbruck involved a few hung-over friends and many Australians in awe of the snowfall outside.

Going from ancient Rome to Austrian cities was quite the change. There were less historical ruins and mock gladiators and much more mountainous scenery and layers of clothes.

We spent the afternoon in Innsbruck. We warmed up with hot chocolates, admired the distant beautiful mountainous landscape alongside the pastel coloured architecture and wandered through the first of many Christmas markets.

After our short stay in Innsbruck we travelled to Salzburg, the home of Mozart and the Sound of Music. My family are huge fans of the Sound of Music, so I was fangirling a bit knowing that I was in the city of the Von Trapp family singers. We explored the city by walking to many of its monuments at negative 4 degrees and it was the first time I had experience cold like that without being at the Snow Mountains for skiing. Although the cold at times for me was unbearable, it did not take away from the beauty of Salzburg. I will never forget reaching the top of the hill to visit the covet Maria stayed at and turning around to see the city of Salzburg with the mountains in the background. I remember shivering from the cold but could not bring myself to stop taking photos; it was so beautiful.

Next up was Vienna, with our first stop at Schobruun palace. My initial reaction to the palace was “Wow!” and after walking around the gardens I still could not comprehend its size. It was so lavish and grand, like nothing I’d seen before. Of course when I went to take some photos there was no SD card in my camera (sad face). We visited the Christmas market in between the museums, a Schnapps museum (slash tried various and too much schnapps) and at night went ice-skating. Our stay in Vienna was only a day but within that time I was able to appreciate the picturesque sights and have my first winter outdoor ice-skating experience with some wonderful friends.

Next up on my winter travels in Europe are Slovakia and Hungary.


Thanks for reading!

  14. So envious of you, you look like you're having an amazing time! -4 degrees is unthinkable when you live in California, we complain about our weather all the time, but winter is only around 7-10 degrees. I think. I'm not too sure on the conversion. Anyways, lovely photos too!

  30. Salzburg definitely must have been pretty to enjoy it despite those temperatures. I used to experience those intense colds when I was in college and that area was gorgeous too so I can get how beauty trumps whether you can feel your toes at times haha.
