History Museum · Historic Site
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. Plan your visit to Mozarts Geburtshaus and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Salzburg road trip site.

  • 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.
