View From Top Of Kapuzinerberg Near The Franziskischlossl, Salzburg
Salzburg

View from the top of Kapuzinerberg, in the Altstadt district of Salzburg, Austria. Kapuzinerberg is located on the eastern bank of the Salzach river, the view here looks out over the Schallmoos district of the city.

Nearby at the top of the hill is the Franziskischlössl (meaning Francis′ Castle). It was built in 1629 by Archbishop Paris Lodron in order to improve the defences of Salzburg during the thirty years war (1618–1648).

On the wall along the edge of the viewpoint is a plaque that points out the directions of various landmarks visible from the viewpoint. These are:

  • Schloss Klessheim Casino Salzburg
  • Salzach / Kraftwerk Riedersbach
  • Maria Plain
  • Kaiserbuche
  • Buchberg / Mattsee
  • Autobahnbrücke Pebering
  • Heuberg
  • Nockstein
