Easy to spot

Crossing the bridge, you'll immediately see Old City Hall. I'm not sure if you can go inside though. It is worth walking around however, because the old city is lovely.

We spent only one day in Salzburg so we don't have any time to discover everything. But we walk throught the Old Cit Hall and it was an amazing experience.

Altes Rathaus had a great christmzs market being set-up when we went. The city hall is right in the center of the city and is bustling with people comparitively. I would recommend walking through the area once.

The city hall is right in the center of old town buzzing with people and life. There are an abundant of shops and restaurants for you to choose from. Salzburg as you would expect it to be. Worth the walk to see the area!

The Christmas Market was one of the better ones. A lot of small town feel with good local food. A little muddy but the surrounding shops offered more to do.

This town hall is not much to look at other than the plain jane tower and clock. It does make a good photo op when taken from Sigmund-Haffner-Gasse especially at night during the holidays with the Christmas lights in the foreground. Other than that, EH! when compared to Rathauses in Munich, Rothenburg...

It may not be easy to pick out in the skyline and not the easiest of places to find while wandering around, probably because you are enjoying the cobble stone streets and other great architecture around, this is something worth seeing. It is said to be a prime example of the Italian influence in Salzburg's architecture.

The best thing in Salzburgh ? The Old Town with its narrow , cobbled streets . Diverse array of shops (including Mc D and Starbucks !!!) Lovely local regalia and great atmosphere. We were out and about here on December 5th when Krampus was out causing mischief and mayhem !

A fascinating area to wander around and take in the sights. The Old Rathaus is quite a unpretentious building in one of the narrow medieval streets and is easy to miss. There are small shops, cafes and boutiques squeezed in everywhere. One shop even sold the rather rare edelweiss blooms so I took a photo.
