Fountain at Residenz

This picture shows the Residenzbrunnen, supposedly the biggest Baroque fountain outside of Italy. Note the little rainbow behind the sea horse. The pink tower left of the fountain is the one of the church St. Michael, the white tower right of the fountain is the Glockenspiel (Salzburg Carillion) in the Neue Residenz. The latter building is also home to the Salzburg Museum, the trendy new town museum. The fountain can be found right at the Residenzplatz, which is in turn framed by the Salzburger Dom (Cathedral), the Residenz Palace, a lane of Medieval houses and the Neue Residenz mentioned above. It is the biggest and most prominent square in Salzburg's Old Town or Altstadt and can't be missed by any tourist.
