The square behind Mozart's birthplace, it is dominated by the whitewashed walls of Kollegienkirche, a church linked to the local university. Not really the largest square in Salzburg but when I was there recently it seemed Universitatsplatz has the most stalls selling stuff like souvenirs, pretzels and even fresh produce. I find the souvenirs there cheaper than shops along Getriedgasse and Mozartplatz.

A really pretty green place in middle of Salzburg Old Town in the grounds of the University of Salzburg. The Furtwänglerpark part of Universitatsplatz has some fine statues including the humorous Wild Man Fountain and Gherkin sculpture, as well as more serious statue of Friedrich Schiller. On the other side of the Furtwänglerpark is the green market that still takes place daily on it, with market stalls for fresh fruits, vegetables, meat, sausages, fish, flowers and souvenirs etc.

Don't just walk through! Take a look inside the university library, visit Kollegien Kirche, walk through some of the beautiful passages to Getreidegasse and avoid the tourist traps ;)
