For twenty-six years, from 1747 to 1773, the Mozart family lived on the third floor of the “Hagenauer Haus” at Getreidegasse 9, where their famous son, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, was born on 27 January 1756. The house is named after its owner and friend of Mozart, the merchant and grocer Johann Lorenz Hagenauer (1712-1792).
A museum in Getreidegasse 9
On June 15, 1880, the International Mozart Foundation first established a museum in Mozart’s birthplace. This has been systematically rebuilt and expanded in recent decades and has thus become a cultural meeting place that attracts thousands of visitors from all over the world to Salzburg every year.
