His apartment on the first floor was positively grand, with four large rooms, two small ones and a kitchen. His whole life long, he attached great importance to outward appearances, so smart clothes and buckled shoes were a must for him.
Wolfgang Amadeus probably spent the happiest years of his life here. At all events, he lived here for longer than in any other apartment. Particularly during this period, Mozart was a celebrated composer, had an illustrious circle of friends, and was asked to give countless concerts at the houses of the nobility.
And it was here at Domgasse that he also penned his best compositions, including what is perhaps his most popular opera The Marriage of Figaro.
W. A. Mozart: "I confess all these, my sins, in the hope that I may be permitted to confess them more often."
Occupying 1,000 square meters on six levels, the Mozarthaus was opened on January 27, 2006 – the 250th anniversary of Mozart’s birth - including the original preserved Mozart apartment.
Visitors are immersed in the vibrant world of Mozart, experiencing his bounteous genius and creativity, his family, and his friends and foes in Vienna of the late Baroque. Become acquainted with Mozart’s enigmatic personality – an experience par excellence!
Mozarthaus Vienna is also a great place for kids - special audio guides for children are available for free (as well as adult versions).
Special exhibition Haydn-Mozart-Beethoven
The show "The Triad of Viennese Classicism: Haydn - Mozart- Beethoven" is dedicated to three giants of the musical world who were intertwined. The three composers shaped their epoch of music history, the "Viennese Classicism". The exhibition traces similarities, parallels and contrasts. Mozart and Haydn were close friends and made music together in Mozart's apartment (now in Mozarthaus Vienna). Beethoven would have liked to become a pupil of Mozart, later Haydn became his teacher. (until Jan. 30, 2022)
