Thanks to the pedestrian-only alleys and parks, the old city is a remarkably kid-friendly place. Salzburg also hosts a number of children’s events throughout the year.
Commissioned by Archbishop Guidobald Thun and executed by Tomasso di Garona between 1656 to 1661, the Residenzbrunnen is largest Baroque fountain of its kind outside of Italy. It sits in the middle of the Residenzplatz all on its lonesome.
Sound of Music fans will recognize this magnificent marble fountain from I Have Confidence. You’ll see Maria splashing water into one of the horse’s faces just before she boards the bus towards the Von Trapp mansion.
Movie Bonus: I Have Confidence was created especially for the film – just like Something Good. For extra credit, try to spot the real Maria Von Trapp in the background when Julie Andrews walks through the archway of the Dom. She is the older of two women in traditional Austrian dress.
