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.

At the end of the city the rock face and building comes together. There are many walkways through the old town connecting squares together. There are so many different architecture styles. watch for traffic as many are shared surfaces.

We visited Salzburg for four days, and this part of the city is a must for travellers to the city. The area is steeped in local history, with many attractions, including those for Mozart and Sound of Music. The architecture is ornate and a mixture...More

Well, the Salzburger Altstadt and especially the monuments are spectacular but we had the impression that the whole town is trying to rip off tourist the best they can.

Salzburg is a very walkable city and the old city is an attractive quarter somewhat reminiscent of Prague. I’d recommend going back across the river to find restaurants - the price/quality ratio is better...

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
