Where Residenzplatz, Salzburg 

When visiting Salzburg, consider visiting Residenzplatz.  Which is one of the famous squares to visit in the Old Town.  This is exactly where the residence building of the Prince Archbishops of Salzburg and the Salzburg Cathedral are located.

This is a great location to visit, here's why. First, the architecture and history bring charm to the square.  Second, the Residenz Fountain is considered one of the most significant baroque monuments in Europe.  The Italian sculptor, Tommaso di Garone is the craftsman behind it all.

Above all, the fountain is renown and famous for another reason.  That's because it was one of the filming location for the famous movie “The Sound of Music”!  You might have heard of it.  Yet many tourists visit Salzburg for the Sound of Music tour.
