Clean and calm place. I loved the statue of Saint Vlasik. Very original. The pickles were also funny. You can also see a statue of Schiller.

This is a nice, clean campus. When you are wandering around Salzburg, you cannot help but wandering around it. There are a bunch of statues all over it. We came across a really cool one of gherkins (yes the pickles) in a row. Too funny!!!
