Salzburg is immensely proud of its most famous son, and Mozartplatz is just one of the city’s many tributes.
The square, with its elegant statue of a youthful Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, dates back to 1842 and was partly funded by Mad King Ludwig of Bavaria, who was a big fan.
One of Salzburg’s most famous squares, it is a popular spot for a photo stop and a stroll.

Doing what: Grand Salzburg City Tour including Hellbrunn Palace and 24 Hour Salzburg Card
This is definitely a must do not only for the guided tour carried out by natasha who was very knowledgeable.The 24 hour salzburg card is amazing value as it covers the majority of museums plus unlimited travel.
We upgraded this tour whist in Salzburg as we had covered city highlights in the Sound of Music tour.
We did the salt mines, eagles nest and a lake region where the name escapes me at the moment. This is an experience not to miss, again another amazing day in Salzburg!

Doing what: Panoramic Salzburg City Tour plus Austrian Lakes and Mountains Sightseeing Tour
The panoramic Salzburg tour and the Austrian Lakes and Mountains sighseeing tour were both fabulous. Could not see Eagles Nest because the road was narrow and dangerous to travel in the snow. Snow everywhere in December during my winter break as a teacher. I believe that a free beverage and slice of cake of your choice was included in this tour. The bus was huge and comfortable. The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Teller machines were available when visiting one of the little towns. Great afternoon five hour trip.
Mozartplatz is in the Old Town on the south bank of the River Salzach, at the eastern end of the pedestrianized Getreidegasse.
