Birthplace of W.A. Mozart
Mozart's birthplace in Salzburg
He was the first pop star and is omnipresent in Salzburg: whether as an image of the Mozartkugel sweet, or in many window displays in Getreidegasse. The first and most important place in search of the tracks of Mozart in Salzburg is without a doubt Mozart’s birthplace in Getreidegasse 9.
Today in the erstwhile apartment of the Mozart family there is a museum with lots of exhibits from Mozart's life. At numerous places and memorial places his genius lives on for all to see: Mozartplatz, Mozartsteg, the Mozart Memorial and a second museum from the international foundation, the Mozarteum on Makartplatz, in Mozart’s home which in being restored has been kept true to the original.
