Salzburg Things to Do: 1,326 reviews and 2,510 photos
Exploring the narrow winding medieval alleys on the "wrong" side of Mozartplatz will lead to the quaint small Pfeiffergassaplatz with the famous bronze sculpture of Papagena, a figure from Mozart's "Magic Flute", variously titled as the bird catcher or the dream catcher.
This less travelled area is of interest for a number of interesting pubs, designer stores, and the church of St. Cajetan, the patron saint of the unemployed ( and therefore of particular signficance in the current economic turmoil ). For those with the time, this church apparently has a breathtaking altar. The biggest regret is not having spent more time in this area.
