Feel like you're in the "Sound of Music": Salzburg, Austria

The mountains are alive! The city of Salzburg was one of the main filming locations for the famous movie Sound of Music, and you'll feel like you're right in the middle of the action if you visit. The city of Salzburg is located in the north center of Austria and is the fourth largest city in the country. Salzburg is called 'Salzburg' because the river in the city, the Salzach, was once used to transport white gold.

The Sound of Music is not the only famous musical masterpiece to come out of this city. One of the most famous composers, Mozart, was also born here. You can actually visit Mozart's birthplace, which is located right in the center of the city. For "Sound of Music" fans, a must-see in the city is the Mirabell Gardens, where you can find many filming locations of the famous play.

The city of Salzburg can be considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world because it is nestled right in the mountains. The city's elevations provide ample opportunity to admire the city from many different angles! The best place to look at the magical city of Salzburg is from:

  • The hiking trails of the Mönchsberg, which lead to the Hohensalzburg Fortress
  • The view Kapuzinerberg, if you climb the Imbergstiege
  • Gaisberg, a small mountain nearby that can be reached by bus from Mirabellplatz (here you can also admire the mountain scenery!)

Salzburg is also the perfect starting point for a day trip to Berchtesgaden or St. Gallen. Gilgen to enjoy the mountains to the fullest.

An alternative to Bruges: Ghent, Belgium

Bruges is often listed as one of the top cities to visit in Belgium, and while the city is definitely worth a visit, there is a less crowded alternative: Ghent. It's not that tourists haven't discovered this destination at all, but you'll most likely have a little more room to yourselves. Bruges is known for its canals that run through the city, and you'll find the exact same thing in Ghent as well. One of the best ways to experience the medieval architecture of the city is to take a free walking tour of the city. From the St.-Michael Bridge you will have one of the best views of all of Ghent. You should also check out the rich Belgian beer culture, perhaps paired with Belgian fries or a Belgian waffle!

Blue City: Chefchaouen, Morocco

The streets of this blue painted city are a maze waiting to be explored. The surrounding landscape of the mountains is also simply amazing. One thing to keep in mind here is that the winter months tend to get cold and although, yes, you are in Africa, pack some sweaters! You should also keep in mind that in some Moroccan areas it is considered polite to dress conservatively, so make sure you respect the local culture. Join one of JoinMyTrips adventures to Morocco!

In this city, it's best to just wander aimlessly while taking as many photos as you can
