Salzburg’s most impressive landmark in the middle of the city just can’t be missed. The best way to explore it is to take the cable car up, be amazed by the view over the city and then walk through the grounds. To get back down you can either take the cable car or simply walk down the steep road, which is a trip well worth it. And you might as well stop at the Stieglkeller for a beer or two on the way down.

The gardens on the right side of the river Salzach were a gift by the royal archbishop Wolf Dietrich von Raitenau, who gave them to his beloved Salome Alt. Come here to enjoy the sunshine, read a book and if you’re lucky even enjoy some music from the Mozarteum music university across. The four figures around the fountain symbolise the four elements: fire, earth, wind and water. Now, that’s something to impress your beloved one with!
