Ice Landscape in Salzach

The River Salzach carries too much water to freeze even in cold winters. However, there are often areas in the periphery of the river bed where the torrent is weak and a layer of ice can form. This picture was taken just in between the Staatsbrücke and the Mozartsteg in a particularly cold winter. The Salzach River is a lifeline and a uniting band that runs through most of Salzburg Province. Starting from the city, you can cycle either to Hallein and beyond or northwards to pretty little towns such as Oberndorf. The immediate surroundings of Salzburg contain sections of the Salzach River that are great for walks and serve as important recreational areas for locals.
