This is a nice place to visit as it is very pleasant here. There are some interesting sculptures here too. I would recommend to come here and take a break after visintg the old town and the nearby Collegiate church.

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!!!
