Mozarts Geburtshaus (Mozart's Birthplace)
Mozarts Geburtshaus (Mozart's Birthplace) Review
As an adult, the great composer preferred Vienna to Salzburg, complaining that audiences in his native city were no more responsive than tables and chairs. Still, home is home, and this was Mozart's—when not on one of his frequent trips abroad—until the age of 17. Mozart was born on the third (in American parlance, the fourth) floor of this tall house on January 27, 1756, and his family lived here in the front apartment, when they were not on tour, from 1747 to 1773. As the child prodigy composed many of his first compositions in these rooms, it is fitting and touching to find Mozart's tiny first violin on display.
The back apartment presents Mozart's Viennese years and his place in history. The second-floor displays focus on his day-to-day living and traveling circumstances, while the third floor has an exhibition called "Mozart on Stage."
