Panorama View on City

The money-shot: A panorama view on the Altstadt (Old Town) of Salzburg, with the full array of the Salzach, various spires and the Festung Hohensalzburg (Salzburg Castle). The picture was taken from the Kapuzinerberg hill in early summer 2008. That year, temperatures rose quickly after a very cold spring - resulting in a beautifully green city framed by snow-white mountain tops. On the horizon, you can see the white Alpine mountain ranges of the Tennengebirge, the Hagengebirge / Göll and finally just right of the castle the Untersberg. The hike up Kapuzinerberg was worth it just for this single picture.
