Mozart was born in Salzburg in 1756 in a third floor apartment, Getreidegasse 9.

He grew up in that apartment as the youngest of the family.  He began showing signs of musical genius at a young age in their home.

The house is wonderfully kept up and the building includes a museum on the first floor.  It is a great spot for any tourist in Salzburg to visit.  Mozart’s memory lives on in historical places like his birth place and childhood home, as well as his music like Magic Flute Diaries.
