Something Delicious

14 Aug

Something DeliciousThis is not delicious. This is curious and sweet. These are padlocks of love on the footbridge over the Salzach River in Salzburg, Austria. Lovers attach a lock to the bridge to signify their lives locked together. You can find these locks of love in many cities but this bridge has so many.

After a morning spent wandering the old streets of Salzburg (Altstadt) I decided to cross the river into Neustadt and visit a few sites over there. The last places I visited in Altstadt were Mozart related. I am a Mozart junkie. He is my favorite classical composer. Papageno Platz is named after the comic character in Mozart’s Singspiel The Magic Flute. He is half bird, half man and he carries a gift, a glockenspiel. And then there is Mozart Platz itself. Across the Salzach I found the famous Hotel Sacher and decided that I would sit out on the patio by the river for lunch. It was a hot day and river breezes underneath a thick green canopy of trees sounded delicious. Even more delicious was what I had after lunch…a famous Hotel Sacher Eiskaffee. Words cannot do justice to the ecstasy of that experience…coffee with whipped cream, ice cream and a chocolate liqueur.

    Did you have their famous Sacher Torte or a Mozart Kugel? Two of my favourite sweets.

      I can’t eat grains so cake is out of the question. I’m not a fan of Mozart Kugeln.
