Mozartplatz, Salzburg

Landmark · Tourist Spot
Situated in the center of the town's historical district, Mozartplatz is a good starting point for city tours and a must-visit for all fans of classical music. The 19th-century Mozart Monument with the bronze statue of the great composer serves as the focal point of the square, but a far more important attraction related to the famous boy genius is the house at No. 8, where Mozart's wife lived and died. Mozart's birthplace is just a couple of minutes' walk from the square. Salzburg Museum and the tourist information office are also found here.

  • We did a self guided tour of the area. Very pretty and lively area. Great spot to relax but it isn’t somewhere I’d go out of my way to see specifically.  more »
  • Visited Mozartplatz for the 3rd time back in 2018 and again, I can't deny that the square, including the statue of Mozart is truly iconic. I would keep visiting this again and again!  more »

  • Love this place, the castle tour was excellent. The mountains are remarkable. Plenty of nice shops, cafes and restaurants for a quick bite or a full meal. Took a carriage up and back, it was fun and very convenient. A great day
  • Five stars on a normal day; ten stars during the Christmas market. Not much going on in the square but it’s flanked by the biggest church and the old and new residences. Plus some eateries nearby.
  • Took a tour of this area which we felt was the best way to see and really know and understand this area and know the people of history of this area. Lots of history...lots of places to eat...lots of places to shop. Highly recommended.
  • Beautiful and big public square courtyard on the name of Mozart. Has a statue of him in the middle and is surrounded by many good stores, restaurants, kiosks and tourists! It is possible to take a horse-carriage ride here too. The place is always full of people and offers a nice ambience to sit and relax or to take a stroll!
  • Loved the outdoor beanbags hammocks and library here. Perfect way to take a break from all the walking we did here
