Tired of the cramped living conditions on Getreidegasse, the Mozart family moved to this more spacious abode in 1773, where a prolific Wolfgang 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 audio guide accompanies your visit, serenading you with opera excerpts. Alongside family portraits and documents, you’ll find Mozart’s original fortepiano.
