This large old town square’s fame can not be attributed to any one thing. Rather, there are a series of little highlights. For example, it is surrounded by the Salzburg Cathedral, the Erzdiozese, the Michael Haydn Museum, the Erzbischofliches Palais, and the Kardinal-Schwarzenberg-Haus. Also on the square is the city’s second major horsewell, the Kapitelschwemme, built in 1732 by by Franz Anton Danreiter. It’s an elegant marble construct and has a statue of Neptune, god of the sea. The square is also one of the best places in the city to people watch as it is one of the most popular local hangouts.

Kapitelplatz And Kapitelschwemme Reviews & Ratings

  • Nice water fountain in Kapitelplatz with a Neptune theme

  • Horses were washed here when they were smelly in older days. No shampoo at that time

  • "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

  • Nice place

  • 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.
