Mozart was born in the third floor apartment of this house at number 9 of Salzburg’s Getreidegasse on the 27th of January 1756. Despite the important new inhabitant at the time the house was the same as the others in the street, but it’s now painted yellow and swarming with visitors wanting to pay tribute to the musical genius. Inside it’s a museum, but the kind of museum where things are as they were during that period, and in this case it means the house is fairly empty.

A Mozart doll lies in a crib in the first room surrounded by family photos – Mozart looking stuffy in wigs and formal attire. In the living room are two of Mozart’s violins, a replica of Mozart’s pianoforte and a clavichord, in the bedroom are some clothes of the right era and in the study copies of some of Mozart’s work and writing.
