Two to three times a week I walk twenty minutes or so to my piano lesson. I actually prefer walking over taking the bus (even though I have a bus pass) because the little journey is so pleasant. One time I took pictures along the way.
There are multiple bridges over the Salzach, some for pedestrians and some for vehicular traffic. I like walking over this one—it’s less crowded.
This is the view from the bridge. You can see the domes of churches and a fortress on a mountain. It’s beautiful.
After I cross the bridge, I continue walking along the river. In the afternoon beautiful twenty-somethings sit under the trees playing guitar or talking and sometimes on hotter days they sunbathe on the riverbank.
The graffiti here is much more artistic than what I’ve seen in America. I also see a lot of anti-Nazi graffiti; things like “Nazis töten!” and “**** Nazis!” or “Kill all Nazis!” and “Space Invaders against Anti-Semitism.” There’s also the occasional ideological anti-war or anarchist message scrawled on walls.
This is the part of Salzburg known as the “new town.” By “new” they mean it’s a few hundred years old. The “old town” has buildings dating back to when years only comprised three digits.
