Connecting the Imbergstraße and the Innerer Stein in the right-bank old town with the Rudolfskai and the Mozartplatz on the left side of the Salzach River, the Mozartsteg is a protected monument named after the composer Wolfgang Amadé Mozart. Its vintage design and historical significance make it an ideal setting for this memorable movie moment.

More about the Mozartsteg Bridge?

The Mozartsteg, opened on March 29, 1903, was initially constructed as a private venture and was toll-operated until the end of 1920. In 1921, it became a free passage for pedestrians and cyclists. Notably, the bridge underwent significant renovation in 2011, including corrosion protection and the addition of an anti-slip surface, ensuring its preservation as a historic and functional landmark in Salzburg.
