Augsburg Travel Tip:
Mozart House, Augsburg
In 1643, the first Mozart ancestor, David Mozart, became a citizen of Augsburg, where he had already bought the house in the Frauentorstrasse where in 1731, Leopold Mozart was born. Wolfgang visited
my papa’s home town five times and repeatedly gave concerts here. He maintained a heartfelt relationship with his Augsburg cousin Anna Thekla Mozart (Bäsle). Thus, Augsburg considers itself, after Salzburg and Vienna, the third most important city in Mozart’s life—the only German
Mozart City. It is with this in mind that Augsburg hosts a yearly Mozart Festival.
In 1937, a memorial room was opened in the Mozart House, and then in 1939 the Hasen Brewery donated the house to the city of Augsburg. After numerous enlargements and renovations over the last decades, today the Mozart House is a modern memorial to the Mozart family and a venue for lectures and concerts.
