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

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.
