This statue of Salzburg's favourite son could almost be described as iconic where this lovely city is concerned. Not all people come to visit Salzburg because of its connection with "The Sound of Music". Many or perhaps even most, come to see the birthplace of Mozart and the places where he grew up and the venues where he played.

The statue stands in the renamed "Mozart Square" not far from the Dom. It is the work of Ludwig Swanthaler and dates back to 1842 at which time a beautiful baroque fountain was removed to make way for it.

Address: Mozart Square
