My mum was excited that I was visiting Mozart's home town and is hoping I hear plenty of his music. As we're visiting at Christmas, a pop-up ice skating rink has been set up and was the focus of most attention in this square. However, there he was, the great man himself. So pleased we didn't miss him.. One can't... More

Mozart was not respected by the people of his hometown till long after he died. His statue is lovely, and he must be saying "finally" from Heaven!

This square is in the city center. You will pass it if you are walking around Salzburg. Great for a photo. Make sure though not to miss the bridge that crosses through salzburg. Really nice stream that flows under it with great views of the entire city of Salzburg.

There's nothing else in the plaza. So, of course you have to take your picture with the statue and... that's it. You can keep on walking the rest of the town.

We had been to where Mozart lived and where he was born so knew a bit of history about the statue. It was worth going to see especially if you know the history behind it and how his wife and sister were there for it's unveiling.

Rumor has it that the statue is wrong in the design as the quill is in his right hand and he was known to be left handed.

In the city centre of Salzburg, Mozart enthusiasts can find a monument dedicated to the maestro on the Mozartplatz (square). The monument was created by Luwig Schwanthaler and placed at this location, by order of then Bavarian King Luwig I in 1842 and is a fun attraction to find if you are a fan of Wolfgang Amedaus Mozart and his...

fantastic statue with an amazing backdrop. There seems to be a trend of Salzburgians decorating statues which is rather entertaining. Our last day there was a postal service bag drapped over his arm. A few days before a tree was donning another statue, very funny.
