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.
Mozartplatz is in the Old Town on the south bank of the River Salzach, at the eastern end of the pedestrianized Getreidegasse.
