"Wander around the city and see..." Salzburg Favorite Tip by marzz3

Salzburg General: 225 reviews and 224 photos

Favorite thing: Wander around the city and see as much as you can! There's shopping on Getreidegasse (Salzburg?s most attractive and most visited shopping street right in the heart of the shopping area in the old town) and Mozart's Birthplace The high and narrow houses are sandwiched tightly together with quaint little shops beneath displaying wrought iron guilded signs to entice you inside to buy. There are all the traditional Austrian wares. The Mozart chocolate balls are good!?!?!. PETERSFRIEDHOF (St.Peters's Cemetary)is quite unique. And Mozartplatz (Mozart Square) dominated by the statue of Mozart by Ludwig Schwanthaler, ceremoniously unveiled on September 5, 1842 in the presence of Mozart's sons. Mozart's widow, Constanze von Nissen, did not live to see the unveiling. She died on March 6th of the same year in the house at Mozartplatz 8
