Don't just walk through! Take a look inside the university library, visit Kollegien Kirche, walk through some of the beautiful passages to Getreidegasse and avoid the tourist traps ;)

Clearly a happening end of town with lots of cafes and a nice pedestrian area, but what got my attention was the sculpture of pickles. The sculpture clearly got my attention and I found it put a smile on my face:)

Clean and calm place. I loved the statue of Saint Vlasik. Very original. The pickles were also funny. You can also see a statue of Schiller.

This is a nice, clean campus. When you are wandering around Salzburg, you cannot help but wandering around it. There are a bunch of statues all over it. We came across a really cool one of gherkins (yes the pickles) in a row. Too funny!!!
