The Alter Markt (Old market) is one of Salzburg's most prominent public squares.
We made our way to this place after visiting Salzburg Cathedral. We spend a few delightful hours here, wandering from one store to another.
The public square was constructed in the 13th century and it was mostly used for the weekly markets, and also for celebrations and festivals. Walking around the old town gives you a glimpse of the quaint buildings that they had in those days.
As we wandered along, we found a wide array of stalls selling all kinds of merchandise.
Fresh fruits and vegetables as far as the eye could see
A riot of colourful blooms that add cheer to the streets
It was interesting to look at the colourful display of goodies even if you were not buying anything.
We were there during Easter season and we found one of these amazing egg stores. The sights, sounds and smells of the Easter spirit just made you linger there and enjoy the season!
What a beautiful public square. I love the colorful market and also like the architecture of the buildings.ReplyDelete
