Mozarthaus Vienna represents the only Viennese home of music genius Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart that has been preserved until today. In addition to that, this home is the most beautiful and largest apartment that Mozart was ever able to afford. Moreover, he composed more here than anywhere else.
In addition to the original premises, multimedia installations also give a great insight into the life and success of the great artist. The museum is open daily from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. The lower floor is also home to the famous Bösendorfer Hall, which has hosted a diverse ongoing concert programme since 2010.
360-degree view of the building:
Wolfgang Amadé Mozart lived in these 4 rooms with 2 small rooms and a kitchen with his family from 1784 to 1787. During this time he composed works such as “Le Nozze di Figaro” or part of the “Haydn-Quartette”. This apartment was also the largest and most expensive in which the composer had ever lived. It is the only one of Mozart’s apartments in Vienna that could be preserved – together with images and documents, furniture, and other objects from Mozart’s time.
Further exhibition areas
The third floor presents the personal and societal situation of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in Vienna. Meanwhile, a multimedia installation takes visitors through all of the composer’s homes during his years in Vienna.
The second floor deals with Mozart’s most significant musician and composer associates, among other things – as well as with his collaboration with the librettist Lorenzo da Ponte (operas: “Le nozze di Figaro”, “Don Giovanni”). Here, historical stucco ceilings and murals whisk visitors away to the decorative past. Furthermore, this floor presents an overview of Mozart in his old age and a theatre & media installation on “The Magic Flute” and “Figaro Parallelo”.
