Mozartplatz - Review

Cities like to commemorate the historical celebrities who enriched their legacies with extravagant gestures. Mozart was certainly the darling of Salzburg. Still, this square, and the Mozart monument at its center, was almost never modelled after him. In the first half of the 19th century the city was in bad economic shape, and still ravaged by the Napoleonic wars; furthermore, there was already a statue of St. Michael there. But funds donated by the eccentric King of Bavaria, Ludwig I allowed work to commence, and the monument was finally unveiled in 1842. Check out the mosaic next to the monument; it was uncovered during the monument’s construction, and is thought to be from Roman times.

Mozartplatz, Salzburg Reviews

  • It's a nice place to shop and of course visit Mozart's house. Loved the small shops on the small alleys with lots of interesting items. Could spend an entire day just walking around and shopping.

  • Very lucky the inhabitants of Salzburg. I'd be pleased to live and work here, it's lovely, a piece of heaven! I'll certainly consider living in Salzburg after retirement.

  • Loved the museums, church. The wT to listen by number let you proceed at your own pace.

  • Of the 2 statues of Mozart I found in the city this is the easiest to get to and very large. Located in the middle of what is called Mozartplatz which translates to motzart square. There are a few gift shops and restaurants surrounding the square as well as the salzburg museum and a very helpful Salzburg info office. This is where most of the walking tours start in the city as well.

  • Salzburg is a wonderful city. So much to see. Steeped in history. Lots of museums, fortress, cafes, parks monuments, a must while visiting Austria or Germany xx
