Mozart's birthplace

Right in the heart of the old city of Salzburg, if you are a music lover then a must to visit. Surrounded by shops, the Spar is the shop at the front of this.

This was hands down the biggest waste of €10 of my trip... Sure, this is where Mozart was born, but there really isn't a lot in here. -Most of the paintings and portraits are of random people and religious figures. -Not many artifacts, most of them were recreations, or just random letters. -Mostly just reading information on the walls. -Rude...

If you want to pay a lot to visit nothing, then go. Is a true speculation of the town to explore and create expectations about this place where you can see what is normal in a house. Nothing special.

The house is well-marked. When we were there the tour guide pointed out that one of the door bells had gone missing. Then she noticed that another was missing and this was very upsetting to her. Why would some one do this to a historic building.

I always heard that "Salzburg is the Mozart's house but Vienna is the Mozart's home". Indeed! This place will take you away from the crazy life of this famous musician. But it's an important part to go and visit. To me, it was really good, because I'm from Brazil and only hear about it. For Europeans, it's sounds like a... More

Tourist attraction for sure! Two of us went in and enjoyed a short stay (10 minutes at most). His apartment and museum in Vienna is much better.

The entrance is included in the Salzburgerland card. The museum gives an easy to understand introduction to Mozart's life. Everything is also in English, so it is easy to follow. There is an app you can download with a text guide (you can see it when you enter the museum) - but I found the explanations on the walls enough.

We had a Salzburg Card so we decided to check out Mozart's birthplace. It was pretty interesting. I sort of rushed through because it was so hot and humid that the uncomfortable level was fairly high. If you're in to history and especially music history, this is a must visit. Being in the actual room where he was born was... More

The house is in the busy Getriedegasse shopping street. I think It is better to visit Mozart Residence. There are many goods sold in the gift shop associated with Mozart - chocolates, violins, cups, glass, .............. In the busy street, there are many shops selling goods associated with Mozart too. Salzburg is closely associated with Mozart
