Palace - Summer residence of the habsburg family
In 1762, the Mozart children's first concert tours took them to Vienna, accompanied by their father - an ambitious manager of his offspring's careers. The then six-year-old Wolfgang and his elder sister played the clavichord for Empress Maria Theresa and her large family in the Hall of Mirrors at the Habsburgs' Baroque summer residence. According to Mozart's father, after his performance the prodigy jumped up on to the Empress' lap, threw his arms around her neck and kissed her.
