Trip Planner: Europe / Austria / Austrian Alps / Salzburg Region / Salzburg / Kapitelplatz & Kapitelschwemme
Pause in the center of Salzburg to admire Kapitelplatz & Kapitelschwemme, a courtyard with an 18th-century fountain. The fountain, featuring a statue of Neptune on a seahorse, was built in 1732 on the site where a horse pond had stood since the Middle Ages. Historical buildings like a cathedral, St. Peter's monastery, and old mills surround the square. Snap some pictures with the sea god, find a spot to sit and people-watch, or join a game of oversized chess.

"Lovely introduction to the central part of Salzburg" We used this piazza as a place to meet the group, whether it was under Mozart's statue or here in front of Neptune's Fountain. It's a beautiful place to relax and enjoy, watching the tourists and others go by. There are plenty of eateries and places to sit, get out of the train, get out of sun. You choose. The fountain itself was made by known sculpture Josef Anton Plaffinger and shows Neptune, the god of the sea holding and trident and crown mounted on a seahorse spurting water. Enjoy this lovely attraction
We quickly visited this beautiful square as we left the Salzburg Cathedral. It's quite close to ResidenzPlatz and Mozartplatz. There are a few things that make this square unique. For one, there is an amazing view from the “Neptune and sea-steed of the chapter flood” fountain. Secondly, a really picturesque view of the Hohensalzburg Fortress on top of the mountain. Just like something out of a magazine. Lastly, you'll surely notice 'Sphaera' which is a 9 meter high 'emotionless man' on top of a golden sphere almost gazing at the mountain and Hohensalzburg Fortress.
