The Untersbergbahn was very good and we had great views across the valley towards Salzburg where the fortress was quite visible. However, it was misty at the top and we decided to come right back down again.
We just caught a bus back into town and walked across the bridge to the boat landing. The 1200 boat was just leaving and we just managed to get on board. The man taking tickets said "Watch your step and watch for bicycles". He wasn't joking, we had to cross a bicycle path which was very well used. We have come to the realization when crossing the road that you have to be on the look out not only for cars but also for silent bicycles.

The cathedral was on our way back to the hotel so we decided to look in. It is in good condition, but a bit dark. It is enormous. It has five organs, one large one placed at the back and four placed across the nave. Mozart is supposed to have played here, presumably the large one at the back. Without making any comments on the way the church used its power in the past, we left and returned to the hotel.
