Mozartplatz, Salzburg

#17 of 211 in Things to do in 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.
