"Tanzmeisterhaus" on Makartplatz

In this house on Makartplatz 8, which was first mentioned in a document in 1617, W.A. Mozart lived from 1773 to 1780. In the rooms of the former Mozart family flat on the first floor today you will find a museum that documents the history of the house and the Mozart family's life.

Makartplatz and Dreifaltigkeitsgasse

At first the square on the right Salzach bank was called "Hannibalplatz”. In 1879, to celebrate the Markart parade it was renamed "Markartpatz” and still is part of the UNESCO World Heritage. It is located in the city's historic centre. 

During the National Socialism period it was shortly called "Adolf-Hitler-Platz” but renamed very quickly. The name Makartplatz was chosen, in remembrance of the painter Hand Markart. 

In addition to Mozart's Residence you can find further sights and landmarks at this historic place: Dreifaltigkeitsgasse with the Dreifaltigkeitskirche church and Priesterhaus are located right on Makartplatz, just like Salzburg Landestheater

Dreifaltigkeitskirche is a church that dates back to 1694-1702 and is considered to be on of the most important works by architect Johann Berhard Fischer von Erlach, who also built Kollegienkirche in Salzburg.
