we enjoyed walking past this in daylight and evening when lit up, beautiful paintings and water fountain, worth seeing as it is close to other attractions in the historic part of Salzburg where there are narrow cobblestone streets and many beautiful buildings

Went there for some business meeting and arrived in a freeze Sunday. I decided to go for a quick walk and saw a very nice and pleasant place with good shop (most closed) and some souvenirs shop open.

Old town of Salzburg is very beautiful and cute. Narrow cobblestone streets with bright coloured unique buildings.It’s like you walk in the museum. Good variety of shops, cafes and restaurants.

You do not have to walk far, because there is another beautiful and interesting sight just around the next corner. With around 20 old churches and other historic sights, several monasteries and the almost 1.000 years old fortress on the hilltop, Salzburg has much to...More

We stumbled across this place while exploring the city on foot . Very nice place with nice statues, we went back to the hotel and read up on it to find that it used to be a horse wash!

We took a horse carriage ride around the old town. The carriage driver told us a brief history about this place. Salzburg is so beautiful that everything in the old town will take u back to that time. Must walk around all these places.

Totally agree with Sassa M’s reply. Avoid the tourist trap cafes in the old town - especially Fursts which had terrible service & was very expensive compared to the cafes the licals go to.

There is an excellent, modern car parking right underneath the Altstadt. It's spacious, light and airy and feels safe. Parking spots are wide and with enough space around it. You take the elevator and you are at 100m from... More
