Die Salsburger Winterskyline / The Winter Skyline of Salzburg

This card was from Rafal for (old) Vacation RR #850. Many thanks Rafal, I love this card. In the picture you can see Salzburg's Old Town including Hohensalzburg Castle on the hilltop to the right; just below the castle St. Peter's Abbey; just left of it the Franciscan Church tower spire; Salzburg Cathedral with the two rounded spires; and Nonnberg Abbey, a Benedictine monastery with the red spire just barely visible in the back. I'm sure there are a few other historic buildings in there but those were the ones I could figure out. The Old Town is a UNESCO world heritage site and is also Mozart's birthplace. You can almost hear the music just looking at this card!
I would love to visit Salzburg someday. So beautiful!
