Horse & Carriage turned into sleigh

So-called Fiaker or Horse and Carriage drivers take tourists on rides through the Altstadt, Salzburg's Old Town. They serve as a combination of folklore item and tour guide. In the winter, some of the Fiaker offer sleigh rides in the surroundings of Salzburg. You can hire a horse and carriage at the Residenzplatz during the summer or at the Alter Markt square during the advent season, when the Residenzplatz is occupied by the Christmas market.
