More adventures in Salzburg

I decided to pay for one more tour - to the biggest ice cave in the world, Eisreisenwelt. It was an hour's drive out of Salzburg, then we had to hike 20 minutes uphill to get to Europe's steepest cable car, after which we had another 20 minute uphill hike to the cave entrance. It was well worth the effort and the money though. The cave was awesome. The only thing that was cold was my feet - I should have worn more than one pair of socks.
I was kind of tired after that, so I had some schnitzel and called it a night.
Then I woke up early this morning and went up to the Hohensalzburg (the fortress over the city). I met a couple from St. Louis - it was nice talking to them about all the places I had been on my roadtrip there. I went all through the fortress and then down to St. Peter's and the adjacent graveyard and catacombs. It was really cool.

I'm going to go have some dinner now - and enjoy the warmth of my room (it's 10 degrees (C) outside)!
