The Makartsteg is a walking bridge over the river Salzach in the center of the city. I guess every tourist who comes to Salzburg crosses this bridge at least once. You have a great view and naturally it is a good spot to take pictures!...More

A wonderful old small bridge which is located in the middle of tourism attractions in Salzburg. A nice view of sunset and sunrise and also a good area to do a perfect morning run.

From this bridge the best sunset view of downtown Salzburg. If in love bring a padlock with you, there is still space to attach it!
