  • You'll find this at the end of the old town built against the cliff face and its an example of the yester year of Salzburg where horses and carriages were the main mode of transport.  more »
  • A beautiful piece of history which illustrates how the mundane can be made spectacular by art. Don't miss this - even in the rain it will lift your spirits.  more »
  • To be under the impression that horses on this beautiful, impressive and Baroque place (a large bath) went drinking, were washed or in the summer in the water were led to cool off.

  • An extravagently decorated horse trough as you will ever see. Sadly, the day I went it would not have served this function as there was no water there. (see photo). It is a new spin on the proverb: "You can take a horse to water but..."
  • "Pferdeschwemme"-Platz: film and Sound of Music Fans might remember that place from the movie which can be seen in one Montage scenes while Maria is going shopping and walking with the children in/around Salzburg. Beware: compared with the movie and today: it has a lot cars/traffic today so it doesn't look that romantic like in the movie. Maybe you should try in the summer time to visiting it very early in the morning before people going to work. Otherwise: its historical interesting.
  • Painting & sculpture of horses is exellant.
  • Below the Mönchsberg Mountain is rock the Karajan-Platz and the horse pond with fountain, there are many frescoes with horse motifs on the rock wall. By this, the Fiaker start a tour through the old town of Salzburg, highly recommended.
