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 works.
In all honesty, we've never found the Mozart Monument to be a particularly beautiful statue in comparison to what is readily seen in Europe. It is more a fun and special monument to find as appreciators of his music. Similar-minded travelers might find this to be a worthy attraction in the old town of Salzburg. Fans can also visit the Birthplace of Mozart, which is located just 3-5 minutes walk down Getriedegasse street, from Mozartplatz. On the square, itself, you can also visit the Salzburg Museum.
Overall, we have enjoyed seeing the Mozart Monument during past trips to Salzburg but feel it might not be a priority if you are making a day trip from Vienna or in the city on a very short stay. However, for those visiting for a weekend or more, it is a fun and worthy attraction to find.
