Lois Ronberg says:
"Old Salzburg (Alstadt) town has several squares in this stunning World Heritage site. Set amid Mozartplatz is a variety of historic buildings and in the centre, black and bold, is Mozart. Last time I visited it was a Saint’s celebration so the entire area was full to overflowing with people strolling around the square - gaily clad with celebration bunting, a jolly Austrian band or two, food and beer stalls, souvenirs, woodwork, leatherware, chocolate and other specialist deli-food and merry-go-rounds which delighted locals and visitors alike for five days. It all climaxed in a mighty fine fireworks display from Hohensalzburg Fortress high above the old city. One of my most memorable travel moments came when the Glockenspiel bells chimed out a piece of Mozart’s music - 42 bells chime through about five minutes of sheer musical beauty. I was there on a Sunday and I heard the late morning bells, I believe there are two others during the day. Sitting in front of the Mozart Statue you have a clear view of stunning buildings of which the double spired one in the virtual tour is the oldest church in Salzburg. Picture perfect. You can just sit and enjoy all the hustle and bustle as you see Austrian’s going about their daily business and other tourists capturing it all on camera. I get to Mozartplatz by walking over one of the pedestrian and motor bridges crossing the Salzach river, then I head through the delightful little walkways into Getreidegasse Street, the famous, narrow street where you will find Mozart' birthplace (now a museum). Getreidegasse accesses most of old Salzburg town. Then I stroll around the Residenz palace, with the Cathedral on the right and the Glockenspiel bells in front, just a short walk ahead then I am in Mozartplatz. Mozart welcomes you - he’s been standing there for a long time; spend some of your valued travel time getting to know his Salzburg - sit a while in Mozartplatz it’s easy to slip back in time, pleasantly muse about him and his ‘’Magic Flute’‘."
