Combining museum, research centre and concert venue, the non-profit Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation carefully preserves the heritage of one of the world’s greatest composers. The works of Wolfgang Amade Mozart are continuously researched by cutting-edge scientists and frequently put into a contemporary context to embrace the future. Mozart’s Birthplace in Austria, the house where the famous composer was born on 27 January 1756, is part of the museum. Located in Salzburg’s iconic Getreidegasse, a permanent exhibition of memorabilia from the artist’s personal life such as his childhood violin, his clavichord and an astonishing selection of artefacts, give the impression that young Mozart is just around the corner.
