Pause in the center of Salzburg to admire Kapitelplatz & Kapitelschwemme, a courtyard with an 18th-century fountain. The fountain, featuring a statue of Neptune on a seahorse, was built in 1732 on the site where a horse pond had stood since the Middle Ages. Historical buildings like a cathedral, St. Peter's monastery, and old mills surround the square. Snap some pictures with the sea god, find a spot to sit and people-watch, or join a game of oversized chess.

  • Not why you go to Salzburg but stop here on your way to the funicular for a good picture of the Fortress. You also can get great pictures of the south side of the Cathedral.
