Day 3 of 8-day Christmas Market motor coach tour

Too little time was spent here, only part of one day, really, after a brief stop in Oberndorff. Such is the misfortune of organized tours, I found. This one was pretty decent, though, by allowing 2 nights at each hotel stay with daily tours from there and tour stops between hotels. Even so, one mustn't blink too long, one might miss something.

Part of walking tour

The organized tour had us tour the fabulous fortress for part of the time, so steeped in ancient and more recent history (Hitler's "aerie" across the valley), then we were turned loose for a few hours on our own.

On our own

We wandered around the fortress and city. I was thrilled to see the outside of the building of Mozart's birthplace, a favorite composer! But it was closed for tours due to renovation. Sigh!
