The Salzburg Glockenspiel can be found on the Residenzplatz. The bells go back to the early 18th century when these 35 bells first woke up this sleepy little town. The bells do not play on the hour as I first thought, but only at 7AM, 11AM, and 6PM. The Glockenspiel ranges over 3 octaves and can play over 40 tunes from Haydn to Mozart.
The plaza is a nice place to have a mid-morning cappuccino and relax and listen to this magical event that will take you back to the time of the horse and cart. If you're visiting between March and the end of October tours can be taken on Thursday night or Friday morning. For tickets, go to the museum box office.
