The Mozartsteg bridge in Salzburg on a winter day

The Mozartsteg is a pedestrian bridge that dates back to the early 20th century. It is an Art Nouveau building made of steel and wood and featured in "The Sound of Music". In this picture, you can also see the monastery of the Capuchins in the background and the neighbourhood where you will find the Steingasse. Otherwise, there is relatively little to say about the Mozartsteg. Note the little house right next to it - once a toll house for the bridge, this building is now "inhabited" by a local artist who makes jewellery and sells it there.
