Two routes from the Old Town of Salzburg lead up to the monastery. The first, and more popularly used, is from the Linzergasse. The second one, though less known, actually offers the more charming views, especially as you have to go past the cute St. Johannes Church. At the monastery, past the Gothic gates, you’ll find a plain and austere looking complex of buildings. The monastery was built in 1596 by Prince Archbishop Wolf Dietrich von Raitenau in response to the spread of Protestantism; the church was to lead the people back to the Catholic faith. You’ll find 10 reliefs at the church from the 15th century and it’s thought they are the remnants of the old Romanesque cathedral. Watch out for the Hettweber-Bastei viewing platform just below the monastery.
