Kapitelplatz & Kapitelschwemme, Salzburg

(4.1/5 based on 90+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Beautiful square with its impressive fountain, the sphere with the human figure and giant chess (saw it also in Berlin) that was used. Much room and locals to have this site as a forced walk.
