Mozart’s Birth-House in Salzburg

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born in Getreidegasse, 9 on January 27, 1756.

The Mozart family lived here in the “Hagenauer House from 1747 to 1773. The apartment where the Mozart family lived became a museum in 1880. The most famous exhibits include Mozart’s childhood violin, his concert violin, his clavichord, the pianoforte, portraits and correspondence of the Mozart family. On exhibit in the historical rooms there are manuscripts (facsimiles), documents and souvenirs, the original portraits of the family members such as the 1789 unfinished oil painting by Mozart’s brother-in-law, Joseph Lange of “Mozart at the Piano” and the musical instruments (Mozart’s concert piano).

The International Mozart Foundation first set up a museum in Mozart’s birthplace, on June 15, 1880. In 1985 the rear part of the house facing University Square was redecorated with private funds as a “typical Salzburg commoner’s apartment of Mozart’s day“.

This was the house where Mozart’s neighbour, Babette von Moll, lived. She was the aunt of the famous Salzburg geologist and natural scientist, Karl Ehrembert von Moll (1760 – 1838). In addition to furniture and everyday utensils three themes are documented: “Mozart and the University of Salzburg”, “Mozart’s friendship to Salzburg families” and “Sacred music and reverence of the saints”.

The second floor is dedicated to the theme “Mozart and the Theatre”. Numerous diorams (miniature stages) illustrate the history of the reception of Mozart’s operas. Stage sets from the late 18th to the 20th century display the many different interpretations of Mozart’s works. Since 1981, the International Mozarteum Foundation has presented different “Mozart” exhibitions on the first floor of Mozart’s Birthplace each year.

Every year thousands of visitors from all over the world come visiting Mozart’s Birthplace. Most of the exhibits are a property of the International Mozarteum Foundation.
