Blog Design Upper Separator

Of the many interesting and beautiful attractions and landmarks in Salzburg, Mozart’s Birthplace (now a museum) was the first I explored. I chose Mozart’s Birthplace first because I wanted to discover something new. I’ve explored a few alpine towns (Lucerne, Interlaken, and Innsbruck) in a row, so I thought I needed a twist.

As a wanderer, I admit that Mozart’s Birthplace wasn’t that exciting, but it seemed interesting. It was interesting because I did not know that a musical legend was born in an alpine town. I wondered what his life was like in Salzburg. And after exploring, Mozart’s Birthplace turned out to be more than interesting… it could be a source of inspiration!

In my view, the experience you can have at Mozart’s Birthplace is also a factor in why Salzburg is a unique destination in Europe. So, whether you’re going to see Salzburg for a day, visiting for two days, or staying for three days, consider including Mozart’s Birthplace in your itinerary. Have it as a top priority along with other highlights of Salzburg such as Mirabell Palace and Hohensalzburg Fortress.

To explain exactly why I’m recommending Mozart’s Birthplace, I’d like to share with you all the interesting things I discovered there. I will virtually tour you to each room of Mozart’s Birthplace! If you’re still wondering if you should include Mozart’s Birthplace in your plans, these discoveries might give you reasons to do so.

Mozart fun facts!

If you’re just getting to know Mozart, here’s a fun fact to start with!

Mozart is one of the most celebrated composers of his time. He crafted hundreds of musical masterpieces, spanning nearly every genre of Western classical music in the 18th century. He was born on January 27, 1756, in Salzburg, in the very place we now refer to as Mozart’s Birthplace. While most people recognize him as Wolfgang Amadè Mozart, his full name is actually quite a mouthful: Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart.

Where is Mozart’s Birthplace in Salzburg?

You should be able to find it in under 10 minutes on foot from both Mirabell Gardens and the FestungsBahn (cable car station to Fortress Hohensalzburg). If checking every house number along the street to find Hagenauer Haus seems like a hassle, don’t worry about it. You’ll quickly spot Mozart’s birthplace with its unmistakable facade proudly labeled “Mozart’s Geburtshaus.”

Once you’re in Old Town Salzburg, finding Mozart’s Birthplace is a breeze. It’s located at No. 9 Getreidegasse, inside the Hagenauer Haus, which is less than a 5-minute walk from any landmark or museum in Old Town, including the Mozart Residence. If you’re planning a self-guided tour of Old Town Salzburg, consider making Mozart’s Birthplace one of your stops. It’s conveniently accessible.

If you’re driving, the nearest parking garages are Altstadtgarage A and B, which are about a 7-minute walk away. If you’re taking public transportation, you can take bus lines 1,4, 7, 8, 10. 23, 24, 27 or 28 to the Hanuschplatz stop or bus lines 1, 8, 10, 23, 24 or 28 to Herbert-von-Karajan-Platz.

Fun fact! Did you know? The façade of Mozart’s birthplace has remained largely unchanged since Mozart’s time. Only the baroque window frames were removed. Additionally, the storey under the roof was converted at the end of the 19th century. If you look closely at the entrance doorway of Mozart’s birthplace, you’ll see charming details like the bell pulls. They are of historic interest as they were used to make the bells chime in the windows of the separate storeys in the past.

History of Mozart’s Birthplace

When you go to Mozart’s birthplace, you’ll learn a lot about the life of Wolfgang Mozart. It is really interesting. But I think it would be even more fascinating if you can picture the moments that happened in the Mozarts’ home. So, let’s talk first about the history of Mozart’s birthplace.

It all goes back to a decade before Wolfgang was born… Leopold Mozart, Wolfgang’s father, was a talented musician who worked for an important person called the prince-archbishop of Salzburg. In 1747, Leopold married Anna Maria Pertl, and they moved into a rented apartment on the third floor of a building. This became their home, a cozy place filled with music and happiness.

As the Mozarts settled in, their family grew. They had seven children, but sadly, only two survived to become adults. One of them was Maria Anna, who everyone called Nannerl, and the other was Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the famous composer we know today.

Life in the Mozart household was full of music. Leopold would spend his days working for the prince-archbishop or teaching music to his students. He would compose music and practice with his musician friends at home.

The Mozarts were not just a family living in this house; they also had a special friendship with the Hagenauer Family, who owned the building. The Hagenauers had a shop on the ground floor that sold fancy things like herbs, tea, coffee, and tobacco. They were very kind to the Mozarts and supported them during their travels.

The square in front of Mozart’s Birthplace is named after the Hagenauer Family to honor their friendship. 26 years later after their first stay in Hagenauer Haus, they finally moved to their own residence on the other side of the River Salzach.

Throughout the years, some changes were made to the house, but its charm remained. The Mozarteum Foundation bought the building in 1917 and turned it into a museum. In 1880, they opened the museum to the public. At first, it only had rooms from the Mozart family’s apartment on the third floor, but over time, it expanded to three floors.

My opinion: Is Mozart’s Birthplace Worth Visiting?

Visiting Mozart’s birthplace offers a wealth of discoveries about the composer’s life. If you’re unsure whether it’s worth your time during your trip to Salzburg, I believe Mozart’s Birthplace is indeed worth visiting. The comprehensive insights into Mozart’s life, from his birth to death, talent to legacy, make it a must-see, especially for his fans.

At the same time, Mozart’s birthplace is an inspiring place, especially if you share Mozart’s burning desire to make your dreams a reality. One exhibit that particularly touched me was Wolfgang’s letter to his sister Nannerl, located on the third floor in the “An Artist’s Life” section.

Inside Mozart’s Birthplace

Below is a sneak peek of what you’ll find inside Mozart’s Birthplace. A couple of the photos are from Mozart’s Residence, a site you can visit alongside Mozart’s Birthplace. There’s a combo ticket available that grants you access to both. But if you’re already a holder of the Salzburg Pass, there’s no need for additional tickets. Both these attractions are already included in the Salzburg Pass.

When it comes to my overall impression of Mozart’s Birthplace, I can say that exploring the museum left me more than satisfied. I learned so much about Mozart. The museum, which spans three floors and includes numerous rooms and sections, offers visitors a thorough journey through Wolfgang Mozart’s life and his enduring impact on the world of music.

While Mozart’s birthplace itself is a modest apartment, the museum dedicated to Mozart’s birthplace goes well beyond its original boundaries. The apartment covers an area of around 130 square meters and consisting of four rooms and a kitchen. In summary, here is what you can expect visiting Mozart’s Birthplace: you’ll be given the chance to see all parts of the museum from third to first floor (they call it round-tour).

  • After you acquire the tickets from the front desk, you’ll climb the stairs to the kitchen on the third floor, where the tour of the museum will begin.
  • Then, room by room, you’ll explore the entire apartment of the Mozart family, including some permanent exhibitions. The exhibitions are about Mozart and his family. You’ll learn about his parents, siblings, wife, and kids. A big family tree, their personal possessions, and stories about their lives await.
  • The tour continues to the second floor, where there are exhibits related to Mozart’s works and his connection to the theater. You’ll see pictures and objects that give insights into the musical performances of Mozart.
  • Finally, the tour proceeds to the first floor, where visitors can learn more about Mozart’s early life and experience a middle-class living room. You can also find exhibits about Mozart’s life of traveling and his life in Salzburg.
FULL DETAILS: Third Floor of Mozart’s Birthplace

Third Floor of Mozart’s Birthplace

From what I’ve discovered, the third floor of Mozart’s birthplace can be divided into three sections: the kitchen and hallway, the apartment rooms where Mozart was born, and the first part of the museum’s exhibits. Here is the exact sequence of the rooms you will explore on the third floor of Mozart’s birthplace:

  1. The Kitchen and Hallway
  2. Apartment Rooms
    1. The Storage Room
    2. The Living Room 
    3. Bedroom
    4. Study
  3. Exhibition Rooms
    1. Anteroom
    2. “An Artist’s Life”
    3. “After Mozart’s Death”
    4. Posterity
    5. Mozart Online

The Kitchen

Your journey through Mozart’s Birthplace begins in the kitchen. While it may not make a lasting first impression, it offers a glimpse into the lives of middle-class families in Salzburg during Mozart’s time. The centerpiece is the stone stove, where food was cooked over an open fire. Definitely, life was hard back then!

As you look around, you’ll notice that the kitchen is separated from the living room. This was to keep the intense smoke and danger of fire away from the rest of the apartment rooms, which you’ll be visiting next. 

The Hallway

After leaving the kitchen, you’ll stroll down the hallway to the Mozart apartment.

On the right wall, you’ll be greeted by a large family tree of the Mozart family. It shall introduce you to each member of the Mozart family and provide a poignant reminder of the high infant mortality rate in the 18th century. If you check the family tree, you’ll see Leopold and Anna Maria, Wolfgang’s parents, had seven children, but only two – Nannerl and Wolfgang – survived to adulthood.

Wolfgang and his wife Constanze also had only two surviving sons, Carl Thomas and Franz Xaver Wolfgang. Their other four children died before reaching the age of one. Sadly, their line was extinguished when Mozart’s sons died unmarried and without children and when Nannerl’s great-granddaughter Berta Forschter passed away in 1919.

The Storage Room

When you visit Mozart’s Birthplace, you will enter the storage room first, which later on became Wolfgang’s bedroom.  In this room, you will learn about Wolfgang’s parents, Leopold Mozart and Anna Maria Pertl:

  • Leopold came from Augsburg in Swabia and moved to Salzburg to study philosophy at the university. However, he never finished his studies and devoted himself entirely to music from the age of 24.
  • Anna Maria, on the other hand, was the daughter of a magistrate in St. Gilgen, a small village on Lake Wolfgang, about 30 kilometers from Salzburg. After her father died, she and her mother moved to Salzburg and lived on a modest pension.

To me, the letter from Leopold Mozart to his publisher, among the exhibits displayed in the storage room, holds the greatest importance. Make sure to check it out when you visit. The letter is about the birth of his son, Wolfgang Amadé Mozart, on January 27, 1756 at 8 o’clock in the evening. 

The Living Room 

After the storage room, you’ll visit the living room of Mozart’s birthplace. This is a unique opportunity to learn more about Mozart and his family. As you explore the living room, you’ll be able to imagine the family sitting together, eating and playing music.

It may be hard to picture at first, but seeing the portraits of Anna Maria and Leopold Mozart, as well as the famous portraits of their two children, will help bring the scene to life.One particularly interesting portrait shows Wolfgang at the age of seven, wearing a gala outfit presented to him by Empress Maria Theresa.

Take your time to wander through the living room, which is the largest room in Mozart’s apartment. There’s more to see! Here, you’ll see a range of Mozart portrayals from the 18th and 19th centuries, including a copy of the famous portrait of Mozart in Verona and other portraits such as “Mozart in Gala Dress,” “Mozart with Diamond Ring,” and “Mozart by Leopold Bode.”

Check the display cases beneath the four main paintings and you’ll learn about the individual members of the family through quotes from letters: “The humorous mother, the well-behaved sister, the critical father, and the unconventional son Wolfgang Amadé.”

You’ll also have a chance to see some of Mozart’s first compositions and editions of Leopold Mozart’s Violin Tutor in various languages, which was already famous at that time.

Bedroom

After the living room, you’ll visit the Mozart family’s bedroom, where the Mozart children were likely born. In this room, which is the most important in the house, you can see personal objects that belonged to Wolfgang Amadé Mozart, such as his ring, a tobacco tin, buttons, a wallet, and even his hair.

To me, the highlight of the bedroom exhibit is Wolfgang Amadé Mozart’s violin, which he played as a child. The violin was built by Salzburg violin maker Andreas Ferdinand Mayr around 1740 and is between 1⁄4 and 1⁄2 size, corresponding to a violino piccolo. With the size of the violin, you can somehow imagine how big Wolfgang was when he played the violin.

Fun fact: Did you know Wolfgang was born on January 27, 1756 at 8 o’clock at night? At the time of his birth, his father was 37 years old and his mother was 36.

Study

In the study room of Mozart’s birthplace in Salzburg, you’ll find a wealth of information about Wolfgang Mozart and his family. Today, this room is devoted to Wolfgang Amadé Mozart’s own family, but it was probably the place where Leopold and Wolfgang used to compose music. Here, you’ll learn about Constanze Weber, his wife whom he married in Vienna in 1782, and their two sons.

In the study, the following are exhibited:

  • A double portrait of Franz Xaver Wolfgang and his brother Carl Thomas, who was six years older;
  • a portrait of Constanze by Hans Hansen dating from 1802 that shows her with a folder containing Mozart’s works;
  • a large golden frame containing one of the most famous portraits of Mozart;
  • and other Mozart portraits from the last decade of his life can be seen in the display case: an ivory relief, the famous boxwood relief by Leonard Posch, and a Mozart miniature on a tobacco tin. 

However, if you’re looking for a portrait that truly captures the image of Mozart, look no further than the silverpoint pen drawing by Dorothea Stock which is also in the Study. Widely regarded as the truest resemblance of Mozart, this portrait depicts Mozart at the age of 33 without any alteration on his image to make him more handsome.With his thick hair and striking protruding eyes, this portrait offers a rare glimpse into the real Mozart. It’s definitely a must-see.

The Study is the last room of Mozart’s apartment. Upon exiting through the arcade, you will find yourself in the exhibition area located at the rear of the house. The exhibition area displays a collection of exhibits that portray Mozart’s experiences in Vienna and the events that unfolded after his death.

We will explore this further in our next discussion.

Anteroom

As you make your way to the exhibits, you will pass through the Anteroom, which boasts a large-scale panorama of Vienna during the 18th century. This panorama sets the setting for the museum’s exhibitions later on.

“An Artist’s Life”

In the exhibit titled ‘An Artist’s Life,’ key aspects of Mozart’s time in Vienna are showcased. These include his experiences as a newlywed, his work as a musician and composer, and his involvement with the Freemasons.

Mozart left Salzburg in search of greater opportunities for musical growth. He sought to obtain commissions from the nobility and upper middle class in Vienna, where he believed he could flourish as a musician. In Salzburg, the musical scene was dominated by the court of Prince-Archbishop Hieronymus Colloredo, leaving little room for Mozart to pursue his passion for composing operas.

Mozart’s passion for his profession is evident in a letter he wrote to his father in April 1781 from Vienna. In it, he expressed his admiration for the city, stating, ‘I can assure you that this is a wonderful place, and for my profession, the best place in the world.’

As you explore the “An Artist’s Life” exhibit, you’ll see the circular display case where you can discover that Mozart earned a living not only as a composer, but also by teaching and performing as a pianist.

On the right-hand side, another display case awaits, revealing Mozart’s daily life in the imperial city. Take a closer look and you’ll find a letter to his sister Nannerl that provides insight into his daily routine and the immense amount of work he accomplished. The letter reveals that he only had time to compose at night or in the early morning, often managing with just five hours of sleep.

“After Mozart’s Death”

The next exhibition room you can visit in Mozart’s birthplace is called “After Mozart’s Death.” Here, you can discover the biographies of the closest members of the Mozart family. Some of the things you can discover here are:

  • Two large-scale oil paintings of Mozart’s two sons, Carl Thomas and Franz Xaver Wolfgang. You can check the display case to learn about their lives)
  • Large oil portraits of Mozart’s sister, Nannerl Mozart, and small portraits of two of Mozart’s long-standing companions, Aloisia and Joseph Lange.
  • A painting of Constanze Mozart’s second husband, Georg Nikolaus Nissen
  • Various manuscripts and memorabilia in the display case, including a first copy of the first extensive biography of Mozart published by the married couple Nissen and a plaster-cast medallion containing a Mozart portrait on a blue grounding.

While this section of the museum has a lot to offer, it did not pique my interest as much as the previous sections. Consequently, I am unable to provide more information about it.

Posterity

The Posterity of Mozart’s birthplace is about the history and preservation of Mozart’s legacy in the city. Visitors can learn about Mozart’s life and work, as well as the efforts to preserve his heritage in Salzburg. This includes the unveiling of the Mozart statue, the establishment of the Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation, and the preservation of historic sites such as Mozart’s Birthplace and the Magic Flute Summer House.

Exploring Posterity, there are plenty which you can find. However, here are some of the things I discovered which might interest you also :

  • Appeals for donations of money for the statue and the discovery of Roman mosaics during its construction. 
  • Rare photographs of Constanze Mozart and Mozart’s older son Carl Thomas
  • Articles about the Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation, established in 1880, which fosters and preserves Mozart’s heritage. 
  • Historic photographs of Mozart’s Birthplace. (They call it the world’s oldest museum dedicated to a composer)
  • Exhibits where you can discover the history of the Magic Flute Summer House, originally located in Vienna and later moved to Salzburg in 1877, where it became a pilgrimage destination for all Mozart enthusiasts. 
  • Oil painting “Mozart at the Spinet” by Anton Romako, commissioned especially for the Magic Flute Summer House.

Mozart Online

On the third floor of Mozart’s birthplace, you’ll find the “Mozart Online” exhibit next to Posterity.

It’s the last part before proceeding to the second floor and it features computers that offer information about the Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation’s organization and 21st-century activities. You can learn about significant academic projects, such as the digital Mozart edition, which provides free access to Mozart’s music worldwide. You can also digitally browse through original Mozart manuscripts.

FULL DETAILS: Second Floor of Mozart’s Birthplace

Second Floor of Mozart’s Birthplace

After learning about Wolfgang Mozart’s life on the third floor of his birthplace, you have the opportunity to uncover what made him truly remarkable: his talent.

On the second floor, you’ll find an exhibit called “Mozart at The Theater,” which highlights his creativity as an opera composer. Discover Mozart’s most significant works and explore a vast collection of stage set models, designs, costume drawings, and stage photographs that demonstrate his musical genius. Mozart at The Theater has three rooms you can explore. They are:

  • Mozart at the Piano
  • Singers and Public
  • Stage sets from 19th to 21st centuries

Mozart at the Piano

In the “Mozart at the Piano” exhibition room, lies a valuable and mysterious portrait of Wolfgang Amadé Mozart playing the piano. To me, it’s perhaps one of the most intriguing artworks you can find in Mozart’s birthplace. The painting, created by his brother-in-law Joseph Lange in 1789, remains unfinished, leaving many to wonder why. Recent research has revealed that Joseph Lange completed a small fragment of the painting, depicting only Mozart’s head. 

While attempts were made to extend the painting by adding arms, hands, and a keyboard in the early 19th century, the work was never completed. Aside from the painting by Joseph Lange, here are some interesting things you can find inside “Mozart at the Piano” exhibition room:

  • Engravings from early performances of Mozart’s operas in the curved showcase on the wall
  • The theater bill of the premiere of The Magic Flute in the round, free-standing display case on the left
  • A walking stick with a sphinx on the handle, which was a present from Mozart to Franz Xaver Gerl, who sang the role of Sarastro in the first performance of The Magic Flute
  • An original Mozart instrument, his clavichord, on a podium. 
  • Role pictures from The Magic Flute in the historic costumes of the world premiere in the round free-standing display case on the right.

Singers and Public

After the “Mozart at the Piano” exhibition room, lies the “Singers and Public”gallery where you can find portraits of renowned singers, models of stage sets from the first performances, and captivating anecdotes about life in the theater. One exhibit that stands out is a collection of engravings by Joseph Schaffer, displayed in a curved red case on the wall, which provides an insight into the premiere performance of The Magic Flute.

In 1816, a groundbreaking production of The Magic Flute was staged at the Court Theatre in Weimar, featuring sets and costumes designed by architect Karl Friedrich von Schinkel. You can see the model and copies of these designs in the display case and drawers located near the light-green display wall.

Stage sets from 19th to 21st centuries

The last exhibition room on the second floor of Mozart’s birthplace showcases the stage sets from the 19th to 21st centuries. Here, you can explore a selection of the Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation’s extensive theatrical collection, including stage set designs and models of Mozart operas performed during Mozart Week, the Salzburg Festival, and at various opera houses throughout Europe.

If you want, you may check the sketches by renowned stage designers from the 19th and 20th centuries, displayed both physically and on a digital screen in the exhibition.

Before you move on to the last part of the museum tour on the first floor, don’t forget to check out the museum shop next to this exhibition room. You might find a cool souvenir to remember your visit!

  • Mozart’s day-to-day life while traveling

Day-to-day life while traveling

The “Day-to-day life while traveling” exhibition room of Mozart’s birthplace is about the journeys that Mozart and his family undertook to present his musical talent to the world. The exhibition provides information about the places where Mozart stayed during his travels, the people he met, and the experiences he had.

Exploring Mozart’s “Day-to-day life while traveling” exhibition room, there are several things that you should not miss.  Here are some highlights that you might find interesting:

  • The map on the wall that marks the major places where Mozart stayed during his travels.
  • The portraits of important personalities Mozart met in Italy, such as Padre Giovanni Martini, one of the most significant music theorists of his time in Italy and a great admirer of Mozart.
  • The display cases on the walls that contain several traveling utensils, such as Mozart’s original tea caddy and sugar jar, as well as books in foreign languages, maps with post stations, guide books, and everyday objects such as cutlery, telescope, scales for weighing coins, and a traveling medical chest.
  • The film scenes called “Mozart on his Travels” can be seen on the screen.
  • The certificate concerning Mozart’s acceptance into the Accademia Filarmonica in Bologna, which is displayed in one of the round free-standing display cases.
  • The pieces of 18th-century jewelry displayed in a free-standing display case because Mozart received many presents such as golden shoe buckles, tobacco tins, watches, and rings during his travels.
  • The many letters written during the journeys to friends and relatives at home that are displayed in another round display case. These letters give vivid impressions of the places the Mozart family visited, the sights they saw, and the experiences they had on their travels.

Everyday life in Salzburg

The “Everyday life in Salzburg” exhibition room in Mozart’s birthplace offers you a glimpse into the everyday life of the Mozart family and their friends in 18th century Salzburg. You’ll learn about a wide range of topics, including leisure activities, hygiene, illness, birth, death, and religion. The exhibit also provides information about the social, cultural, and political life of Salzburg at that time.

Some of the interesting things I found in the exhibition are the following:

  • The wall that features the friends and contemporaries of the Mozart family, as well as the masters of Leopold and Wolfgang, the prince-archbishops Schrattenbach and Colloredo.
  • The round free-standing display case that contains playing cards painted by Leopold Mozart himself.
  • The display case on the left wall, containing objects of everyday life, such as wigs, a shaving towel, baby bottle, and hot-water bottle.
  • The display case, providing information about healing methods in the 18th century, including the blood-letting scarificator, an important medicinal instrument at that time. 

Middle-class living room

Last in Mozart’s birthplace is the “Middle-class living room,” offering a glimpse into the life of middle-class families in the 18th century. Furnished with pieces from St. Peter’s Abbey and the former possessions of the Hagenauer family and other Salzburg families, the room provides an authentic representation of the time period. The fortepiano made by Anton Walter around 1790 is a highlight of the exhibition and is sure to capture your attention.
