Salzburg Photos: Decorated Door
return to "winter photos"
A door of a medieval burgher house in Salzburg, decorated for
Christmas. Obviously, not all buildings in Salzburg are medieval - most locals
reside in "normal" buildings at the outskirts of the city. However, the density
of historic buildings in the city centre is exceptional and unique in Europe
when it comes to uniformity and sheer number of this particular style. This door
is in fact typical for Salzburg burgher houses: The step is made of marble from
nearby Adnet, the walls of Salzburger Konglomerat, a popular stone once mined at
various spots in the city of Salzburg itself. If you are interested in local
geography, we recommend the "Haus der Natur", a museum of natural history with a
focus on local things.
