This square in the heart of Salzburg’s old town is an attraction by default. Surrounded on all sides by stately buildings, with a lovely fountain in its center, and throngs of tourists crowding it every day, the 1587 square is usually one of the first attractions on any itinerary of the city. It is surrounded by the Neue Residenz and its museums, the Salzburg Cathedral, the Salzburger Residenz, the Salzburger Weinachts museum and the Cafe Glockenspiel. There is also a row of burgher houses. The 1661 marble fountain in the center of the square was built by Tomasso di Garona, and is the largest baroque fountain of Middle Europe. Note the sculptures of the horses, the giants, the dolphins, and the deity Triton. Concerts, parties and sporting events are frequently held here.

  • Very Nice walk through the history of Salzburg. Mozart birthplace and the fortress high up on the hill. Inclined railroad to get up! Cobblestone streets, old cathedral and a very festive market atmosphere. Very upscale shopping in addition to traditional shops. Worth the stop and take a leisurely stroll.

  • Beautiful Square, nice to sit on the bench watching the fountain which is the largest Triton Fountain outside Rome. The Square is surrounded by Historical buildings.

  • The heart of Salzburg. Not as great as some, but still a lovely place.

  • This is a great residence to visit. Perhaps, not as elaborate as the Munich residence, but a great addition to your day walking around old Salzburg.

  • The main square in the city that.leading to hohensalzburg fortress it has a fountain chess to play and a statue of a man standing on a golden globe
