Anton Neumayr Platz

The Anton-Neumayr-Platz is a square in the Old Town or Altstadt of Salzburg and known for the picturesque array of Medieval and Baroque town houses that are built directly into the rock of Mount Mönchsberg. Here you will also find the entrance to the Mönchsbergaufzug, which takes visitors directly to the Museum der Moderne (Museum of Modern Art). At Anton-Neumayr-Platz itself, you will not only find the fountain depicted in this photo, but also several cafes, bars and restaurants. During the - admittedly short - summer season, the square turns into an open-air cafe/bar area, despite of the rather high levels of traffic that passes the piazza.
