|About these ratings|
Before Mozart relocated to Vienna, he wrote many cherished symphonies, concertos and operas at Tanzmeisterhaus across the Salzach River from Mozarts Gerburtshaus and the Hohensalburg Fortress. Unfortunately, only a third of the original house remains intact due to a World War II bomb blast. An office building was initially constructed in the devastated section, but it was torn down in 1994. The house has since been restored to its original state. Exhibitions display the composer's original drafts and sheet music written in Salzburg. Most notably, Mozart's original pianoforte resides here. However, the house gets criticized for its overall reliance on replicas. A TripAdvisor user admits, "I wish we skipped it and did something else."
