Mozarts Geburtshaus (Mozart's Birthplace)#6 in Best Things To Do in Salzburg
If you're looking to tour a quintessential Salzburg attraction, then a stop at Mozarts Geburtshaus is a must. Born on Jan. 27, 1756 on the third floor of this property, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart resided with his family here until 1773. Now the building houses a museum that chronicles the musical prodigy's early years. Artifacts from his life are spread out between this site and Mozarts Wohnhaus, where the famous composer also lived.
If you're short on time and can only visit one of these melodious houses, however, spring for Mozarts Geburtshaus. On display there are exhibits like Wolfgang's childhood violin, portraits and family letters. Exhibits are stretched among three levels: Visitors learn about Mozart's family and birth on the third floor, progress to his opera-composing period on the second, and get an insight into his everyday family life on the final ground floor. Travelers claim all of the exhibits are extremely informative and interesting, even if you aren't big on classical music.
You can visit Mozarts Geburtshaus, located along Getreidegasse in Altstadt, any day from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (There are extended hours in July and August). Entrance costs about 10 euros (about $11) with reduced rates for children. Go to the house's website for information about combined tickets for dual admission, and keep in mind the Salzburg Card is valid at this attraction.
