A few weeks ago, at the end of July my mum and I went to Salzburg and Gut Aiderbichl because they had a T-Rex skeleton to exhibit. The first couple of photos are from Gut Aiderbichl, a place where they take care of animals that would often be killed otherwise. It is mainly for horses, alpacas, goats and pigs (big/farm animals), but there are also a handful of dogs and cats – the cats have a great set of three big rooms, a garden with a fence and can go anywhere. And of course the T-Rex. What was kind of funny to me is that most people get there using their car – it’s like let’s support nature (animals), but destroy it at the same time (exhaust gas pollution). You can get their by bus and shuttle however like we did, but it is a bit complicated and you should tell the bus driver where you are going, because they will call someone at the Gut. Besides all the animals you can also get something to eat (all vegetarian or vegan) and buy stuff at a flea market (the money earned goes to the animals of course). And I did find some Vinatge books, a vintage camera and posters.
We then wandered through the beautiful city. Not only, but also due to the fantastic food, it’s one of my favourite cities. The café to which I went before is Cafe Classic next to the Mozart Museum. And, if I may say so they have the best Sachertorte there is. Literally no Sachertorte anywhere compares to this. Alongside I recommend Mozart Melange which is coffee with Mozart ball flavour and it is just delicious (and I need this mug). We had dinner at Zum fidelen Affen and it was very tasty as well.
The city is great to explore for a day or two. Even the regular shopping streets are beautiful and historic and I’d highly recommend spending some time there and just wandering around – but you have to stop at Mirabell Castle.
