Historical Highlight

Mozart’s Birth House

A visit to the famous composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s birthplace is a must for music lovers and history buffs. Mozart entered the world at the Hagenauer House, number 9 in Salzburg’s fabled Getreidegasse, spending his childhood and much of his youth in the family quarters on the building’s third floor.

Today, the premises have been lovingly transformed into a memorial to Mozart’s life and musical genius.


The museum collection includes historical instruments such as Mozart’s own clavichord and violin as well as original certificates, letters, and memorabilia documenting the musical prodigy’s life in Salzburg.

A rotating exhibition on the first floor brings a fresh perspective on Mozart’s life to the museum each year. A romantic and inspiring experience for any Salzburg guest!
