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.

  • Love Motzart? Go here. Get the 24 hour pass and hit several places. Great displays and history! Self guided or audio assist. Warning: stairs involved. Public bathrooms (WC) also available.

  • A must visit museum located here. One will get to know the history of the city. Salzburg is a beautiful and peaceful city. The bus network is amazing.

  • Very nice spot with an ice rink in the winter. You can also order hot punch, Mozarts birthplace is also nearby.

  • Lovely plaza in Salzburg, Austria with many places to sit. A relief for weary feet. Just behind the Plaza is very fine museum. Well worth a visit. We happened to catch a great exhibit of drawings on loan from the Louvre.

  • Nice and charming square with a museum, fountain and street theatre/entertainers (on warm days). There are some nice restaurants dotted around too.
