I have wanted to visit the Mozart houses in Salzburg for years. The Birthplace was crowded out - and we were there in a cold, wet, early Feb., so goodness knows what it is like in peak periods! The crush in each room destroyed any sense of atmosphere and did not encourage one to linger - even if you could... More

Great to see where the legend that is Mozart was born. Whilst it's true that the furniture is not original (hardly surprising - it was a very long time ago!), you still get a very strong sense of the standing of the family and the type of life they lived. There is loads of information available - we downloaded the... More

Amazing classical historical place, attending one of the live concert was an epic experience. The whole city was celebrating, in addition to all those who came from all across the globe. I Highly recommend it

Mozart's Birthplace is a place that must be visited during a visit to Salzburg. It was back in glittering musical past .... indescribably

We visited Mozart's birthplace in February. The apartment must bear little resemblance now to how it was 250 years ago and, not surprisingly, does not contain any of the family's furniture; but to me it was enough to stand in the rooms where the Mozart family had given birth, slept, eaten, in the case of five infants, died, and where...

It will move you... go visit. You'll need tickets to enter the gallery. His home is also not far from his birthplace. I suggest you get a "bundle purchase ticket" which you can get from most hotels. It's v cost saving!

A 10 Euro entry fee enables you to enter the birthplace of the mighty Mozart a magnificent composer of his time. Do not go as a tour group as when the place is crowded out it loses its sense of atmosphere. Plenty to see and observe and although in 30/40 minutes you will have experienced what the apartment has to... More

This quaint little museum in Mozart's family apartment where he was born is simply and beautifully done. As it is small, get there early since it would not be so good with a lot of people.
