Residenzplatz Square - Mozart Square (Mozartplatz) - Kapittel Square (Kapittelplatz).
These squares are connected and can, therefore, confuse any tourist wandering there. Kapittel Square is home to a wonderful fountain and Residenzplatz has a fountain located right in its center. Previously, this place was home to a cemetery and a residential area, but by order of Archbishop Wolf Dietrich the area was demolished and released for the beautiful square and the Residence Palace. The palace can be visited with a guide. This beautiful building will give an idea of the luxury in which archbishops lived. There is also a museum in the palace. Mozart Square is decorated with the statue of Mozart right in the center. Here visitors will be certainly attracted by the church of St. Michaels and Café Glockenspiel.
The Franziskaner Church and the Collegium Church.
Both the churches are located close to each other, and both are definitely worth visiting. The Collegium Church is a university church, so its main altar is mostly decorated with science related motives. This is a beautiful church made in the baroque style in contrast to somewhat formless Franziscaner Church built in the XIII century and rebuilt several times. During some time the Franziscaner Church was the cathedral one, but then the building of the cathedral was finished.
The Hohensalzburg Fortress can be reached by funicular that rides along Festungsgasse Street in the old town. One more way to reach it is to walk up on the same street. The fortress was built in the XI century and was designed primarily as a hiding place for the archbishop. Its present form is the result of numerous renovations, which lasted for centuries. The fortress had many functions, and in the end it turned into a small village of with a dozen of houses. Currently, visitors of Hohensalzburg are welcome to make a walk to this place and visit the museum together with a guide.
