In the heart of Salzburg Old Town
Placed in a street named Getreidegasse, you will find the house of the business magnate and delicatessen tradesman Johann Lorenz Hagenauer (1712-1792), in which the young ‘Salzburg royal chamber musician’ Leopold Mozart moved with his wife Anna Maria Walburga in 1747. For 26 years, the Mozart family lived in an apartment on the third floor consisting of a kitchen, a small chamber, living room, bedroom (where birth was given to the children) and study. Here, seven children were given birth to, of which only two survived infancy: in 1751 Maria Anna Walburga (‘Nannerl’) and on January 27, 1756 Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilius (‘Wolfgang Amadeus’).
The three floors of Mozart’s birthplace are set up as a museum. Mozart’s original instruments and authentic portraits are centered. Moreover, furniture from Salzburg and objects of utility and of daily use originated from Mozart’s time are exhibited.
