Tired of the cramped living conditions on Getreidegasse, the Mozart family moved to this more spacious abode in 1773, where a prolific Mozart composed works such as the Shepherd King (K208) and Idomeneo (K366). Emanuel Schikaneder, a close friend of Mozart and the librettist of The Magic Flute, was a regular guest here. An audioguide accompanies your visit, serenading you with opera excerpts. Alongside family portraits and documents, you’ll find Mozart’s original fortepiano.
Under the same roof and included in your ticket is the Mozart-Ton- und Filmsammlung , a film and music archive of interest to the ultra-enthusiast, with some 25,000 audiovisual recordings.
