This square was used in the “I Have Confidence” sequence and is now traffic free. It has a magnificent view of the Fortress.
A Bit of History
The square is where all the cathedral and monestary administration buildings are.
From Kapitalplatz head up the little street that leads to the Funicular to the Fortress. As you look at the Fortress, this is in the top right of the square. Keep going past the funicular and the Stieglkeller (great for lunch in the beer garden) until you reach where the road meets the main path around the Fortress. Go straight ahead and the Abbey is a few minutes away. Go under the arch to see the gate used in the film.
