View on winterly Salzburg with lots of snow

This panoramic view on the Altstadt or Old Town of Salzburg was taken from the look-out platform at the base of the Capuchin Monastery. It is one of the best places for looking at Salzburg and a very rewarding place for taking pictures all year round. This photo was taken in December, on a gloomy day; note that on brighter days, you can see an impressive chunk of Alps, spreading into Tyrol, Bavaria in Germany, Salzburg's southern provinces such as Pongau and Pinzgau, as well as Upper Austria and the Salzkammergut area. Other great look-outs can be found on the Mönchsberg and at the central tower of the Salzburg Castle (Festung Hohensalzburg). Many of these look-outs can be accessed rather safely all year round; only some sections of the hills might get closed during winter.
