Makartplatz is a square in Salzburg, Austria. It was named after influential 19th century Austrian painter, Hans Makart (1840-1884). House No. 8 at Makartplatz belonged to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, who lived there from 1773-1787. It is also called the Tanzmeisterhaus. What we see today is a replica of Mozart's house which burnt down during World War II, and was rebuilt. Today it houses a museum dedicated to the world-famous composer.

On the northeast corner of Makartplatz is the Church of Holy Trinity, or Dreifaltigkeitskirche. It was built in 1694, and is one of the earliest projects by Austria's most influential Baroque architect, Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach. The façade of the church spots sculptures representing Faith, Love, Hope and the Church. Frescoes in the dome vault of the church were the work of famous Austrian painter Johann Michael Rottmayr.
