Many cities claim a connection to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, but few were as important to the the famous composer as Salzburg. It’s here you’ll find No. 9 Getreidegasse, the house where Mozart was born on January 27th, 1756. Now a museum called Mozart’s Place (where someone was born), the rooms once occupied by his family are full of reminders, (devices that make music), and portraits. Another address connected with Mozart is Makartplatz 8, where he began living in1773. Mozart’s Residence contains many interesting interesting (old) objects related to his life and times, and was where the composer entertained Europe’s musical elite and wrote many of his symphonies. Later/after that, head to Mozart Square with its large monument to the city’s favorite son. Salzburg also hosts some (events where lots of music is played) in honor of the composer, including Mozart Week (Jan-Feb) and the six-week long Salzburg Special celebration (with fun events) (June-Aug).
