In November 2013 we continued our AmaWaterways river cruise up the Danube passing through Austria. The theme of our river cruise was Christmas markets. By the time we landed in Vienna, the markets were in full throttle. Both Vienna and Salzburg are filled with music. We went to a concert in Vienna and Salzburg is the home of Mozart.
The hills are alive, with the sound of music . . .

Traveling during the holidays is chilly but beautifully festive. All of the streets were decorated with beautiful lights and colorful trinkets. Vendors in rustic wooden booths or stalls sold decorations, roasted chestnuts, pastries, sweets, gluhwein (mulled wine) and every type of sausage available. It was a food fest and party all day and into the night.
