Salzburg is the city of the ‘music master’ himself; yes, it is the City of Mozart. This is the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Austria’s most famous composer. He lived here, composed music here, therefore many memorabilia around.
The Mozart square, very close to Salzburg cathedral has a huge statue of the master himself. Draped in classic clothing, the bronze statue is the creation of Ludwig von Schwanthaler. The statue was unveiled in 1842 in the presence of his two sons. What a proud moment it must have been for them! Tourists pause to have a good look at the statue, admiring his contributions in the field of music.
