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.
