Mozarts Geburtshaus, Salzburg
(3.2/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
Learn about the details of Mozart's childhood and his relationship with his family at Mozarts Geburtshaus. Exhibited instruments, documents, portraits, and family letters reveal his passionate interest in music--opera in particular. Start from the birth room on the third floor, where Mozart came into the world on January 27, 1756. Do not miss such rarities as his childhood violin or the clavichord upon which he composed "The Magic Flute." See the striking unfinished portrait of the composer that his brother-in-law painted two years before Mozart's death. Breathe in the atmosphere of the age on the first floor among original furniture from that time.

  • You will be surprised to see where this quiet little home is located. It is along a very nice shopping area, it was such a surprise to see it among all the hustle bustle. Very quaint and well kept, ma...  more »
  • We walked in for free thanks to the Salzburg card (recommended in General for the visits of the city). The Museum turns out to be boring, uninteresting, poorly organised in terms of space and presentation and way too crowded. The full price of 10 euros I seems to be a rip off.

  • Very interesting place to visit in Salzburg. A well-presented museum with some excellent exhibits and a few that go into details slightly off the mark for me. The overall impression you get is that a ...  more »

  • For those into Mozart, this has to be a must visit. If, however you are not too much into Mozart and just visiting Salzburg, you might be disappointed. The museum is in the old center and there is a supermarket below. The exhibitions are varied, but did not bring over a compelling story to me. Somehow it felt as just items on display. You are not allowed to make any photo's inside, which I also find a pity. Be aware: you will need to walk stairs, so if you are not up to that, this is not the place to go to.
  • Austria is a mountain paradise. The cities are among the most beautiful in the world. The Austro-Hungarian remembrance is alive still in these unique locations. Salzburg is hosting the most beautiful Christmas Market in Europe, I believe. A place of wonder, history and Crestin Pilgrimage.
  • We had high expectations, thus were somehow disappointed! They have some unique items, like the piano and original notes. But some of the display room where almost empty. Also photographing is not allowed. The rooms were very hot and few wind fans they have didn't help much.
  • Informative . No picture-taking allowed. Quite amused to find that right beside and if I am not wrong beneath this famous building, there is a supermarket there! Can't remember if it was a SPAR or a BILLA!
  • Good place to visit from a historical perspective. But nothing great to reckon. Displays and exhibitions are nice and give you a feel of the old days during Mozart, but they don't tell you the story of his growth and establishment as a world-class artist.
