Salzburg has two famous memorial places of Mozart. The first one is Mozart´s birthplace in the Getreidegasse, the second one is Mozart´s residence at the Makartplatz.  The Mozart residence, an incomparable building of the baroque period, houses an impressive museum of Mozart and a unique museum of audio and film.

Mozart´s family lived on the first floor in the so-called »Tanzmeisterhauses« (»house of dancing master«) from fall 1774 on and father Leopold Mozart lived there continuously until his death in 1787. (Actually, Mozart´s residence must be called »Leopold Mozart´s residence«). Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart spent the first four years here, then another two years after his return from Paris. The rest of his life he stayed in Vienna. In 1783, together with his sister Constanze he visited his father and his other sister Nannerl.

Between his stays abroad he always visited Salzburg. At this time, they still made music in the noble Tanzmeistersaal (hall of dancing master), shooted with airguns ("Bölzel") and played cards. And in the backyard the had even a bowling alley!
