Located in the middle of Getreidegasse you already know that you are getting loser to Mozart's birthplace. There is always a knot of people who want to take a picture of the yellow building. But on its own it is very recognisable. In golden letters it has written "Mozart Geburtshaus” (Mozart's birthplace) on it.
The house on Salzburg's Getreidegasse was originally called Hagenauer Haus. But after Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, one of the biggest musicians and composers of all time, had been born here it was renamed.
Already in 1880 the building was converted into a museum. There is a lot to see; after all the Mozart family lived on the 3rd floor of this house for no less than 26 years. Thousands and thousands of visitors from all over the world meet here to visit the original Mozart premises.
In addition you will find here:
• The family's instruments (like a Mozart's childhood violin)
Exhibition at Mozart's Birthplace
In addition to these exhibits there are also special exhibitions taking place with Mozart's original instruments or Salzburg furniture and items from the era he lived in.
Here you can find the current opening times and prices.
