"Figarohaus" Mozarthaus Vienna - Mozart's House Tip by grkboiler

  Plaque outside of Figarohaus
by grkboiler

Vienna has many famous citizens, but Mozart is probably the most famous. He lived in 11 different places in the city, but was believed to be happiest in this one located in the shadows of Stephansdom. It was here where he wrote many of his famous works, including "The Marriage of Figaro", for which the building is named. Mozart lived here with his family for 3 years.

Currently inside the flat is a modest museum dedicated to Mozart with some documents and headphones for listening to his works. There isn't much to it, and it should only take about 15 minutes to see everything.

It is worth paying the 2 Euro admission fee to walk in the rooms where Mozart lived. The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday from 9 AM to 6 PM.

Address: Domgasse 5
Directions: Walk behind Stephansdom on the north side and when you get past the 1st building make a right, then a left and it will be in front of you.
