Alter Markt (Old market)

The Old Market in Salzburg’s Old Town was laid out as a municipal trading and market square as early as the 13th century. Between 1873 and 1927 the square was called Ludwig-Viktor-Platz, after the youngest brother of Emperor Franz Joseph I, Archduke Ludwig Viktor, who lived in Klessheim Palace from 1861.

The dairy market, herb market, turnip/cabbage market and the stove fitters' market were once linked to the central market. The square is enclosed by a row of stately town houses, whose core often dates back to the Middle Ages.
