See two great music destinations at your own pace, with the freedom to explore the exhibits that interest you most. Listen to recorded commentary on audio headphones as you explore Mozart’s life in Mozarthaus Vienna, the only one of his Vienna apartments that still exists today. Learn more about the legendary composer through presentations of major works that place his music in the context of his life and times.
A few blocks away, the award-winning Haus der Musik has a playful, scientific approach to sound. Take time to visit six floors of interactive displays and musical artifacts that sprawl across 54,000 square feet, and trace the development of music from the earliest human civilization to present day. Don’t miss the historical archives of the Vienna Philharmonic where you can listen to a shortened version of their famous New Year’s Eve concert, or the third-floor exhibits about Vienna’s classical composers. Try your hand at leading the Vienna Philharmonic at a virtual conductor exhibit, then enter a sonosphere to hear audioscapes from cities around the world.
