Mozart Geburtshaus (Mozart's Birthplace) Tours

Two museums in Salzburg celebrate the life of genius composer and child prodigy Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Born in the city on January 27, 1756, he grew up in two different houses before turning his back on the city in preference for the bright lights of Vienna and beyond. Both are now museums.

The Mozart Geburtshaus (Mozart’s Birthplace) is located on Getreidegasse, the smartest street in Salzburg’s enticing Aldstadt. The massive townhouse itself dates from the 12th century, but by the 1750s it was divided into apartment and the Mozart family were crammed onto one floor. Mozart’s family lived in this surprisingly humble abode for 26 years before their precocious son hit the big time and started earning good money. This museum has recently has something of an overhaul and is much improved; the exhibition highlighting Mozart’s early life stretches over three floors and incorporates period furniture as well as the clavichord on which he composed The Magic Flute, family portraits – including one of Mozart at his piano painted by his brother-on-law Joseph Lange – his first, diminutive violin, strands of his hair and many of his original opera scores. 

On the top floor of the townhouse, other members of Mozart’s family are featured, including his wife and family. Audio-guides are available in several different languages, including English.
