Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is probably the most famous son of the city of Salzburg. Born here in 1756, he was celebrated for his musical talent as a child. His compositions are still world famous today. He had a great influence on the city of his birth, Salzburg: Today you can even see his birthplace in the Getreidegasse as well as the later residence of the Mozart family. In addition, the Mozart Week is held annually in January, during which Mozart’s music is also gladly interpreted in a new way. Also worth seeing for non-classic fans!
