Mozarts Geburtshaus, Salzburg

3.4
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.

  • This was a reproduction, however the history, musical instruments and the overall feel was very real. Our guide was able to build on our peaked interest on this genius.  more »
  • ....this is the place were Mozart was born and its really a shrine to one of life great men in his specific field! It was crowded and many people wanted to get in and see really nothing! But its again...  more »
  • Have been Salzburg several times but visited Mozart's birthplace for the first time this visit. The place is very disappointing. Thinking we were going to see how the Mozarts lived all the rooms were ...  more »

  • This is the worst curation of any museum I have been to in years. Have loved Mozart all my life. There is little of interest (it is thrilling to see hi childhood violin and his clavier) but the information is dull and does not bring the man to life at all. A waste of money.
  • Worth the entry fee of 11 Euro. Buy the 24 of 48 hour pass and do a whole lot of things. Warning: stairs. Great self guided tour with audio assistance available. Lots to see!
  • Could be loved and appreciated more meaningfully by music lovers and some historians, and of course major footfalls of the tourists to Salzburg. The ground floor of the house has been converted into a commercial establishment. Select sections of the house from first floor onwards is open for visitors on paid basis. Displays, manuscripts, audios, musical instruments, centain paintings of the era concerned.... are some of the attractions besides usual souvenirs and gift shop. Conveniently located right at the old town area of the city. Photography prohibited inside most of the house.
  • A must place to go if you like Mozart. His first violin is in there music sheets and lots and lots of information. And much more
  • Lot more to see here compared to Mozart residence. It wasn't too busy when we went so we were able to immerse ourselves in it. Thoroughly enjoyed the visit. PS - Get a Salzburg card, it's extremely good value for money.

Where to stay in Salzburg

There’s no better area to stay in the city where Mozart was born than the historical city center, a World Heritage Site. Salzburg's hub offers comfortable accommodations nestled between a rich array of sights. The Salzach River cuts directly through town, dividing the city into east and west. Look for accommodations in the Altstadt, tucked in between the river and the city’s mountain, Monchsberg. For budget-minded travelers, try a centrally located youth hostel or small hotel. If price isn’t an issue, splurge on Austrian luxury in an upscale hotel.
