Fortress Hohensalzburg

This one was taken up at the Nonnberg again (remember, Maria's convent) when we were walking up to the fortress. There is the Festungsbahn railway in case you're not the rambling type but unless you're schlepping small kids up there you'll reach the Festung Hohensalzburg in no time on foot so I wholeheartedly recommend the scenic route (sure seemed like a long way when I was last up there in primary school though..)

Anyone for a Prisoner reference? I kept waiting for Rover to make an appearance every time I saw one of these little tourist information booths..

The museum in the Festung is good fun. Lots of portraits of mustachioed men looking ever so important and busts of the very same. The above is a detail from a diorama of an alpine first world war phone switchboard

So I am the proud owner of not just one but two Dirndls now :) Seriously, I am spoiled rotten (danke Mama & Papa). My wardrobe is now chocker. :D As soon as there is no room for a second wardrobe in our shoe box home (and I am none too sure that would be a good idea even if we had the space) I think I had better concentrate on remixing until further notice. 50/365 here I come! (Although that might be a 60 or 70/365 after recent additions. I refuse to count! :D )

Can't wait to show you the dress in more detail. The hidden collar is rather lovely :)

Scarf: ex Mom's
Dirndl: Present (H. Moser outlet)
