Salzburg is the fourth-largest city in Austria. Salzburg's "Old Town" with its world famous baroque architecture is one of the best-preserved city centers north of the Alps, and was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. This beautiful city is noted for its Alpine setting. It is also the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

I think everyone who has been to Salzburg as a tourist has a shot from the fortress looking down toward the Salzach River. Who could resist??

By your comment and image, I see you and the tourists are one. And if I were there beside you with my camera, I'd be doing the tourist thing, too. Great image, BT.

Stunning view! It may be a common angle but first I have ever seen it, your image inspires me to go there. Excellent capture.
