Visited for the Christmas market and everything was like a fairy tale dream.
One of the best Christmas market around the area.
We were there for Christmas 🎄 Marktd. Definitely a bucket list item. Plenty of locals and tourists enjoying the scene. It was busier in the afternoon and evening with everyone enjoying the lights at night.
Here for the Christmas market and it's exquisite! Well worth the visit, but as the night progresses, it gets very busy without an easy path through the people.
Salzburg main square where they do their Christmas market, it was beautiful with a great backdrop of the cathedral. Nice Christmas market with great products and food and drink options.
Beautiful Platz in the center of Salzburg.
Really nice culture at Mozartplatz. Also check out the spring at the other side of the building
Architecture that will leave you stunned. History that will inspire and an atmosphere that makes you feel so happy.
Architecture which you fall in love right away with. I would suggest to come here during the weekday early in the morning or later in the evening so you can enjoy this place with less people around. It's very popular among tourists.

A simple square, except fountain nothing much to see and enjoy. One can find more interesting stuff in the adjacent alleys(gasse).
Good for scenic beauty and photography
Sadly I had too high expectations for this Platz, because when I visited it one week ago, all the fountains and the statues were covered, and the view was not so appealing.
