Mozarts Geburtshaus, Salzburg

3.5
#3 of 29 in Museums in Salzburg
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.

  • Facing the main street of the old town, Getreide Street is a prominent yellow building, and it is a house where i spent from birth to seven years old. The father of the musician who served the archbishop and the grandfather on the mother's side were born to the family of the musician named the conductor, and the talent bloomed from an early age by the talent education from the father. At the age of six, she performed in front of Maria Theresa and became known throughout Europe as a "kind child Mozart." The first to third floors are open to the public as a memorial, and the ground floor is used as a supermarket. Mozart's scores and letters, portraits of parents and family, piano and violin, daily necessities and furniture, miniatures of opera stage sets, There are exhibitions such as a digital archive where you can listen to a part of your work while looking at the score on the screen. Photography is prohibited except in the kitchen. In addition to the classic chocolates, the hotel's shop also sells copies of the score. Because it is a small memorial, I think that it is enough if it takes about one hour. It was crowded with tourists despite the pouring rain on the day I visited. I think that the raincoat is lighter than the umbrella for a walk on "Getreide Street".

  • It was interesting to feel the atmosphere where such a talented musician was born and how his great talent was born in it and flourished.

  • A pet corner, not particularly fancy, is not recommended for children, a small and particularly fancy museum that is not suitable for a musical genius of such magnitude. It's nice to spend half an hour with your partner, a little jump to the past.

  • The town and streets surrounding Mozart house are very charming. Must see if you like old towns with narrow charming streets. The area has too many good restaurants.
  • Extremely touristy but it was very fun to see a 6 year old Mozart's music script! Worth it for that alone. Also pretty educational about his life.
  • A lot of details about the life as well as obviously from his birth. The information about the family was also very interesting. They have a sound room, and songs which you can enjoy, so overall a very pleasant experience.
  • Beautiful building. The street has been transformed into a high end shopping district. Nice to see, however, compared to some of the other places I visited, not worth going out of my way.
  • The best schnitzel I've had in my entire life. The potatoes... How did they make them that delicious !?!
