Not much to in the tunnel per se, but in the inner city part there is a chance to see clos r the detail of the rock cuts they made to make room for more buildings.

I just can't imagine how they did that at the time without those modern machines we have today, you can walk on the side and cross to the other side of the tunnel

This is one of the main gates into Salzburg and was built in the 18th century. There are nice carvings on the wall, which is worth a photo shot.

This is a major landmark built in 1764. It connects Old Town with the Riedenburg district. It's hard to miss since it's right next to the Pferdeschwemme Horse Bath. The arch (or gate) of the tunnel is beautifully decorated. At the top of the arch,...More
