We just happened upon it while walking. We did use it as a landmark on our many walks around town. Whenever we passed by the sculpture, we always slowed down.

The Horse Well is located right after the tunnel entering Olde Town. The murals are beautiful and highly detailed. Great phot opp. It only takes a few minutes to see this landmark but well worth the time.

This is yet another of the seemingly endless spectacular and beautiful fountains in Salzburg. We enjoyed every one of them. Coming from our world where there's a constant debate over what constitutes "urban art," I'm going to say that that the artists of the baroque...More

Yes it's a beautiful piece of sculpture each horse is different. Only a short walk over the bridge to the market place. Also real horse and carriages not far away.
