Residenzplatz is a large, stately public square in the old town of Salzburg and also the largest square in the old town.

There's some really beautiful buildings surrounding the square such as Residenzgalerie Residenz Palace, the Glockenspiel and Salzburg Cathedral. At the centre of the square is the Residenz Fountain.

Plenty of shops, restaurants and cafes around the square as well.

Main square, with some recognisable areas from Sound of Music. When we went in Sep 19 there was a festival on with lots of stalls, food and drinks. Magical at that time.

This is a historic, and traditional place to have the new year countdown and experience the traditional New Year's eve waltz in the streets of Salzburg. It was raining so there were lots of umbrellas, but the tradition went on. We had a good view of all the fireworks even those from the Salzburg Fortress. The Salzburg Cathedral bells and other bells in the city were tolling at midnight, contesting with Waltz Music in the streets and fireworks in the sky, You really felt the Salzburg tradition while dancing the waltz with the residents and tourists. This is also were most booths with drinks and snacks were set up and where tourists/residents can have free waltz and folkdance lessons/training some hours in the afternoon of New Year's Eve ,so they can dance comfortably with ease. After the New Year's eve celebration, we did not want to queue and wait for buses or taxis with the crowd so we walked home (hotel was near Hauptbahnhof main station). It took 15 minutes.

Very pretty square, loved seeing the horse-drawn carriages with the blanketed horses. Check out the store at the end of the square, it carries goods made in Austria.

The lovely Triton fountain sits in the middle of this square surrounded by Salzburg Cathedral & many more historical buildings.

Unfortunately they are upgrading the road/path-way in this area & the place is a mess.

There are a few cafes on the perimeter of the square.

Residenzplatz is bordered by the Prince-Archbishop's Residenz and the cathedral. It was a filming location in the Sound of Music. It's a nice place to relax and/or catch a ride on a horse-drawn carriage.

A lovely spot, located in the old town, which gives you plenty of options for clicks / views / selfies / people watching, it can be easily covered on foot.

This square is very beautiful surrounded by the cathedral, the residence and overviewing the fortress. It is even more beautiful viewing it at night.
