The House of Mozart (Mozarthaus) in Vienna is one of the most famous attractions of the city. The Austrian composer lived in this residence until 1787, during the most prosperous period of his career.
Mozart and his family lived there from 1784 to 1787, during which time he wrote the world-famous opera “The Marriage of Figaro” and three of the six Haydn Quartets. It is the largest, most elegant and expensive apartment ever occupied by Mozart and the only one that is still intact today. It consists of four large rooms, two small ones and a kitchen.
With the aid of pictures and documents, furniture and other objects from Mozart’s time visitors can follow in the footsteps of Mozart and his family. The apartment contains a magnificent musical clock made around 1790, which plays a variation of the “Andante for a cylinder in a small organ” (KV 616) that Mozart is thought to have composed for this very clock.
