Mozart Haus, 1st floor - Mozart’s apartment

  • Arriving at Mozart’s apartment, visitors enter the most atmospheric and personal area in the building - the rooms in which Mozart and his family actually lived. The apartment was, in fact, the largest, most elegant and most expensive one that Mozart ever lived in and the only apartment in Vienna that still exists. It consists of four large rooms, two small ones and a kitchen. Mozart lived there from the end of September 1784 until the end of April 1787. During these two and a half years he wrote some of his key works, including The Marriage of Figaro. The apartment has been open to the public in various arrangements for more than 60 years. In these narrow confines, exhibitions of the past have attempted to present as much of Mozart as possible. The Mozarthaus Vienna now has two additional floors providing information about Vienna, Mozart and his music in general. In contrast to earlier incarnations, the focus in Mozart’s apartment is now therefore exclusively directed on the time that Mozart actually spent living there. This period is approached by asking the central question: how did Mozart and his family live and work in these rooms?

Mozart Haus, 1st floor - the stairs to the 2nd floor

  • The composer lived in Mozarthaus Vienna from 1784 to 1787 in grand style, with four large rooms, two small ones and a kitchen. The life and works of this musical genius are presented here on four exhibition levels. In addition to Mozart’s apartment, which has been adapted by Wien Museum, visitors can find out about the times in which Mozart lived and his most important works. The exhibition focuses on his years in Vienna, which marked a high point in his creativity.

Mozart Haus, 2nd floor - Mozart’s musical world

  • The 1st room on the 2nd floor (“… - and the best place in the world for my profession”) presents the most important musicians and composers, both colleagues and rivals, in Mozart’s Vienna. This is followed by rooms dealing with the three great Da Ponte operas, The Marriage of Figaro, Così fan tutte and Don Giovanni. These rooms still have their original stucco ceilings and in the “Figaro room” the original murals have also been exposed, giving an idea of what the decorations throughout the house might have looked like. The connecting area deals with the Requiem and the end of Mozart’s life. The last room is devoted to The Magic Flute, possibly Mozart’s most well-known opera.
