Situated in the center of the town's historical district, Mozartplatz is a good starting point for city tours and a must-visit for all fans of classical music. The 19th-century Mozart Monument with the bronze statue of the great composer serves as the focal point of the square, but a far more important attraction related to the famous boy genius is the house at No. 8, where Mozart's wife lived and died. Mozart's birthplace is just a couple of minutes' walk from the square. Salzburg Museum and the tourist information office are also found here.

The Mozaetplatz is a nice enough square but it isn't going to blow you away or make you wish you could spend an afternoon there... In autumn... Maybe in summer it is better.

Small but nice platz next to the Dom and surrounding Mozart’s statue. Lot of people hanging out and taking pictures as well

Love this place, the castle tour was excellent. The mountains are remarkable. Plenty of nice shops, cafes and restaurants for a quick bite or a full meal. Took a carriage up and back, it was fun and very convenient. A great day
Five stars on a normal day; ten stars during the Christmas market. Not much going on in the square but it’s flanked by the biggest church and the old and new residences. Plus some eateries nearby.
