I guess the highlight is pretty much the Mozart Statue. During winter, they have the ice skating rink around the statue. Other than that, there's nothing much to see in this square.

We visited salzburg twice back in the late nineties. Went back last week and was dissapointed to finf that the cafe on mozartplatz is now a museum. The cafe was the perfect place to stop a take in the square. Also skating rink in the square was blasting cheesy amarican standards on the PA!! Why no classics! the tourist office... More

Statue of the composer. Walked across here a number of times. Tourist info is on the square. And it's very near the Glockenspeil Tower.

Mozartplatz is an unassuming square located close to the DomQuartier, a palace in Salzburg's old town. The most interesting aspect of this square is the statue of Mozart. It's something to have a look at an maybe snap a pic of Salzburg's favorite son.

During our day in Salzburg, there was a huge festival in the Mozartplatz and in front of the Cathedral so it was difficult to really see anything.

We found the place alright but it was extremely busy. The festival was on and there were people everywhere. Purely for the history involved you would have to visit but I found it not to be very spectacular. Statue is about as interesting as all the others that we have seen on our journey.

I come to Salzburg for Mozart!I snap some pics here-and there are some museums here if you have time-and the nearby castle on the top of the hill.There is a nearby kebab shop after one day of walking around here.

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
