  • Take a walk around this city and you will definitely see this horse well. Or if you join the City Tours, they stop and pick up guests right on the corner of this well.  more »
  • My son loved this good size fountain. He loved the horse statue in the the middle! You don't expect this coming straight from the tunnel under the mountain.  more »
  • The Horse Pond, next to the Siegmonds Gate is beautiful. It is also one of the landmarks in the movie "The Sound of Music  more »

  • 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.
  • A precious source. It was already known the film smiles and tears. One can not go without a photo.

  • Very good as a meeting place, there conspicuously. Always a fine photographic subject. A few steps further is located the Toy Museum.
