Every Thursday, even in winter a nice flower market is held on Residenzplatz in the New Town. I was quite surprised when I stumbled across this small, charming market right as I started my sightseeing tour at Schloss Mirabell.
It was somehow funny to see the blooming flowers and the snow on the ground next to them on a crisp and sunny winter morning.
Visiting Salzburg on a Thursday brings the extra treat of being Market Day. Strolling down the old town we found many vendors with beautiful displays. It is a good time to stock up on fruit for the hotel or next day's train ride, or simply mingle across the locals and enjoy the experience.
