The Residenzplatz is a good place to start. Look for the horse fountain. Then, veer south towards the bronze doors of the Dom, Cathedral. The courtyard of St Peterskirche is another sight to see for free as are the gardens of Mirabell Palace. Tulips, crocuses and Greek statues provide economical eye-candy for all.
