Lots of variety

Lots of lovely stalls to look at in the beautiful location. A very touristy stop, with carriages, unique shops and restaurants and cafes. Fountain is pretty lovely too.

When we were here in September the area was a hive of activity day and evening with market stalls, amplified music, dancing, eating and drinking. This was probably why there were virtually no concerts in Salzburg that week.

This is one of the sites used in the film version of "Sound of Music". It is a large marble fountain ringed by four water spouting horses and topped by a statue of Triton. The square is used as a market on occasions and other time has a number of buskers, horse-drawn carriages, etc making this a busy place.

A beautiful, traditional outdoor area complete with horse drawn carriages, lovely shops and many restaurants and cafes near by. A very nice area to visit either during the day time or a summer's evening.

We visited Salzburg in mid December. We thoroughly enjoyed the Christmas markets, but this one in particular was nice and big and centrally located. Definitely worth a stop.

It's already opened the Christmas market in Salzburg, here is the location. They are open till 8pm. Just one negative impression, they don't accept credit card very easily.

It is a good place to see the castle and the funicular. There were some stalls selling souvenirs at reasonable prices there too. Worth a visit

It looks like a Christmas market, in spring!! It is not a large square, so there are not a huge number of stalls. Enough to keep your interest for about 20mins. And a couple of great bratwurst/sacherwurst sellers! Lots of hand-made products on offer. Didn't buy anything (except the hotdog!), but worth a look.

All the shops, cobblestones, alleyways, vendors, statues, monuments, fountains...Salzburg really has it all and it's all clean and well tended to. It's just a beautiful area to stroll and window shop or make a few nice purchases!
