Over the coming days I'll be posting images from the beautiful Austrian city of Salzburg. Why am splitting up my Salzburg images? Because there are so many things to see in the city I have way too many photographs to make a single blog post.
So where to start? Well +Silvia Antlady and I took the sensible decision to park outside the city centre and make use of a park & ride service. This being the case my first view of the city proper was from inside the bus. We were dropped beside the Salzach River and this was the first thing to catch my eye.

I am not able to tell you what this building was in times past, but today it houses the Salzburg Tourist Office and some shops. Looking back over my shoulder gave me a view of the old monastery Kapuzinerkloster:

This is the Salzburg Museum in Residenzplatz.

How about the fountain in Residenzplatz?
If have a few minutes, click the images for a larger view and see how many different animals you can find.
