We had a lovely few days in Salzburg just the weekend before Christmas and strolling around this market was the epicentre of our trip. Loaded with little shops and food and drink stalls, listening to children sing carols and sampling local fare was a wonderful...More

Lovely city square, all cobblestone, you can hire a horse drawn carriage tour of the city. Plenty of shops and restaurant/bars to sit around and watch the world go by as the wife spends your money.
