Domgasse 5 is the only one of Mozart's apartments in Vienna that still exists today. The composer lived in Mozarthaus Vienna in grand style from 1784 to 1787. Nowhere else did he compose more music. Mozarthaus Vienna presents the life and work of the musical genius Wolfgang Amade Mozart, with particular emphasis on his Vienna years from 1781 to 1791, in a unique setting in the heart of Vienna close to St Stephan's Cathedral.

Very intimate setting in a chamber-style concert with 4 musicians and 5 rows of chairs. Beautifully played! Felt like a personal concert was being given. Recommended for sure!

Entering in Mozarthaus makes you feel as if you're going back in time. It's amazing to see how this extraordinary musician lived! Admiring his belongings is a unique experience! Worth the visit! Well organized and helpful staff.

Would recommend to music lovers (opera, classical) - as well as history buffs. Small house where you have Mozart memorabilia and a good audio guide that guides you along. For classical music and opera lovers, a must see - and would give it at least 2-2.5 hrs. For others - including children, probably 1 - 1.25 hrs max. Similar to... More

We fully enjoyed the visual presentation of the house and its rooms, and the chronological history of Mozart. This was probably the nicest apartment he ever rented, which was at the peak of his career. It also proved to be quite different from the fictional movie of Mozart we tend to remember. You can only imagine how cold the apartment... More

The fact that this museum is located in a house Mozart lived in feels sort of incidental; it adds something but not much. However, the exhibits themselves are nice and worth visiting.

Mozart lived in this house for almost three years, and the time spent here was supposed to be the most productive of his (short) life. The audioguide will give you many instructive informations about Mozart's life and music, but the presentation of the artefacts is a little, shall we say, dull. The displays could also be more interactive, especially for... More

Over the multiple floors, Mozardhaus is a museum to Mozart's family story and music, from all parts of his life. The museum is well laid out, and the exhibits are informative and some are interactive, but they could have been more inspiring - I can't quite put my finger on it, but it seemed a little dull despite the great...

I'm glad I got discount on this museum as if I had paid full price I'd be feeling extremely ripped off. This 'museum' has very little, if any, original prints or artefacts. They all seem to be in the Wien Museum; which is cheaper. The pictures seem to be in a very random non-logical order either- Mozart would not approve... More

I was very much looking forward to this. I LOVE Le nozze di Figaro and thought this would be very interesting. Unfortunately, the exhibits are do flat and boring, I didn't even want to finish it. Only a very small portion was interactive. Almost everything displayed is reproduced, and you can't take pictures. The audio guide passages are so long... More

I was very disappointed with this museum, which seemed more like an attempt to cash in on Mozart's name than anything else. As others have said, he didn't live there very long and they have no idea what any of the rooms were used for. There are very few original exhibits or furniture, mostly just photocopies of documents of manuscripts... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
