Mozart Square with the Mozart monument and the carillon is the starting
point for a tour of the city. Created after Prince Archbishop Wolf Dietrich
had numerous houses torn down. The square is dominated by the statue of
Mozart by Ludwig Schwanthaler, ceremoniously unveiled on September 5,
1842 in the presence of Mozartīs sons. Mozartīs widow, Constanze von Nissen,
did not live to see the unveiling. She died on March 6th 1842.
