We actually followed the Rick Steves walking tour of Old Town with starting at this site. So the statue is ok, but it's near a nice plaza and it is a good starting point for walking the Old Town.

It was strange that in the middle of such a captivating city you find a place that doesn't really match the rest of its beauty. The plaza is pretty empty of anything else except for the statue of Mozart of course.

While some may think the Mozartplatz is just a big empty space, think back to days gone by and imagine the bustle there would have been then. It is lovely to stroll from one square to the next and have 'elbow' room after wandering down all the very narrow streets. Mozart was extrememly important to Salzburgers and so rightly has... More

If you want to see a statue of Mozart, then this is the place to go. Unfortunately, there's not much else in this plaza. There's a couple of small souvenir shops, however Mozartplatz is really just a big empty square that most tourist groups use as a meeting point at the end of their Salzburg tour. The adjacent squares have... More

Having visited countless squares in Europe, I find this somewhat underwhelming but I appreciate the importance of Mozart to the world and Salzburg. Definitely worth walking through. Sadly there's not much else to recommend it be on the attractive buildings. It's somewhat surprising you think there be many sidewalk cafés and the like. There were none.

This is a large empty, except for the Mozart statue, plaza that offers practically nothing to tourists. Just a boring landmark, no more no less.

What I Liked: nice to take a photo of the bronze sculpture. What I Disliked: nothing to admire except the surrounding buildings. Yes or No? No cause time will not permit me to visit so many places with limited time :(

There's a nice statue of Mozart here alright, but essentially, there's nothing else to see. It makes for a good gathering spot; otherwise, it's wise not to make a special trip to visit this place. If you're nearby, however, just drop by, spend five minutes taking pictures of the statue and you're done. There are many other attractions in Salzburg... More

A simple square with a statue of Mozart, am I missing something here? Good for a photo or two but you won't need longer than 5-10 minutes (max).

It's a simple plaza without much to recommend it - except the statue of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, arguably the greatest composer of all time! Plus there's a great Tourist Information center right there too!
