Did you know that the roots of the Mozart family lie in the Swabian region? With its newly designed exhibition, the Augsburg Mozart House, which has just been renovated, gives visitors an informative and refreshing insight into the history of the Mozart family. Leopold Mozart, the father of Wolfgang Amadeus, was born in this house in 1719. Just like his son, Leopold had great musical talent and worked as a composer and deputy musical director. As an influential person in the field of musical education he gained an excellent international reputation while he was still alive. When Wolfgang Amadeus was still very young, his father discovered his talents and step-by-step helped his son become the composing genius he is renowned for being.
There are several exhibitions in the Augsburg Mozart House. Maximilian Zenger has brought together all existing works, which are now on display in what is probably the world’s most famous collection. Genuine exhibits such as engravings, books, handwritten letters, musical scores and musical instruments give a wonderful insight into the Mozart family. A modern audio guide, available in German, English and Japanese lets visitors travel back to the 18th century and experience the extraordinary life and music of Leopold Mozart and his family. Small windows and slide shows in the multimedia area make each visit an interactive and joyful experience. Short films entertain children as well as adults.
