Climb Ev’ry Mountain

We hiked along the Monchsberg yesterday — one of hills surrounding the city of  Salzburg.  We took the funicular up the the Hohensalzburg Fortress, the oldest castle in Europe.

We walked around the fortress some before continuing our hike.

From the fortress, you can head along the edge of the cliff toward the Modern Art Museum, and through a wooded area.

And some pretty spectacular views…

of the Alps, and

the old city walls, built 805.

Once we got the the museum, we wandered a little and had (a fantastic) lunch in their cafe.  Where we enjoyed views like this

and desserts like this

And then we took the elevator back down the mountain.  Not a bad approach to hiking.
