Impressive statue and murals but once you’ve seen that’s about it. Pretty central so easy to find but only takes five minutes to take in

One of the most beautiful water features in Salzburg. Not particularly central but worth a quick photo stop en route to Mönchsberg or Gstattengasse, especally if you are a horse lover. The central marble horse sculpture stands in the centre of a large pool with...More
