Freistadt and Salzburg in late Autumn by road
I first toured Europe extensively ten years ago, all by rail - so I was surprised to discover this year that, in the case of Prague and Salzburg, no direct rail connection exists between these two famous centers of classical music, even though they ring together so much in many foreign ears.
Indeed the train is probably the third best option for the journey, behind air and road.
Here are some photos I took in Austria at a pretty small town called Freistadt, and in Salzburg itself. For a more complete write up of the drive, check out my wife's article for The Prague Post, From Prague to Salzburg on a shoestring.
