Guided museum tours for school classes

Guided tours of the museum in Mozart’s birthplace can be booked for school classes and youth groups throughout the year.

Adults know about Wolfgang Amadé Mozart and his birthplace in Salzburg. But what exactly does the next generation know about Salzburg's most famous son? The museum tours in Mozart’s birthplace invite children and young people of all age ranges to follow in the footsteps of Mozart.

These special tours through Mozart’s birthplace are an opportunity for young visitors to learn more about Mozart's life and impact. Exciting anecdotes, original showpieces, and musical examples are used to help them understand why Mozart has made this city famous throughout the world.

In the second Mozart museum, Mozart’s Residence, audio guides in six languages are available to visitors. Guided tours are also available here upon special request.

The tour lasts approximately one hour.

The flat rate fee of the tour (for a school class or approx. 30 people) is charged in addition to the admission fees.
Guided tours in German: 55.00 €
Guided tours in English, French, Italian, or Spanish: 66.00 €.

Entrance prices for Mozart’s birthplace:
Pupils (6-18 years old): 2.50 €
For every ten pupils, one supervising adult is admitted for free.

Museum & Live-Musik

Alongside a guided tour of Mozart’s birthplace, children and young people can enjoy a musical performance of original compositions by Mozart and his contemporaries, performed on the historic fortepiano dating from the time of Mozart.

A museum visit is not equally exciting for all children - an individual approach is needed to stimulate each child's senses, to answer each child's questions, and to awaken each child's curiosity. Truly unforgettable impressions are only achieved when the young visitors are enthused and captivated in a wide variety of ways. ‘Museum & Live Music’ puts fact into practice and allows the museum's young visitors to actively discover, experience, and, above all, hear Mozart.

During their visit to Mozart’s birthplace, children and young people are given fully comprehensive insight into the life and works of the prodigy from Salzburg. The program complements the standard guided tour of the house with a musical performance on the historic fortepiano. What is so special about this is that students at the Mozarteum University play original compositions by Mozart and his contemporaries, thus familiarizing the children and young people with the typical sound of this instrument. If desired, this performance can be followed by a vocal performance of Papageno's aria ‘The bird-catcher am I’ or to Mozart's ‘Come lovely May, and make...’.

This service can only be booked together with a guided tour for school classes. The duration of the tour is thus extended by 20 to 30 minutes.

Service charge for the live performance:
1.00 € per student (in addition to the flat rate fee for the guided tour and the museum admission fee)

We kindly ask you to book well in advance. Please indicate the name and address of your school as well as the number and age of your students.

A discovery tour through Mozart’s Residence

By using free audio guides, young visitors can independently explore the exhibition in Mozart’s residence.

A day in the life of Mozart: independent discovery tours (without a guided tour)

In 1773, after they outgrew the house in the Getreidegasse, the Mozart family moved into the so-called ‘Dance-Master's House’ located on today’s Makartplatz. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart lived here for seven years until his permanent move to Vienna. The house tells of Mozart’s biography and of everyday life during Mozart’s era. Audio guides convey the exciting history of the building, describe Mozart's composition work during his time in Salzburg, and give an impression of his social environment. There is special focus on the women in Mozart's life – especially his sister Nannerl –, his travels throughout Europe, and the popular pastime of ‘Bölzlschießen’, a shooting game with colored discs as targets.

The highlights of an individual discovery tour through the Mozart family residence include the historic fortepiano and the famous family portrait in the ‘Dance-Master's Salon’. An audio-visual display on Mozart's life and his Salzburg surroundings completes the multifaceted tour of the museum.

Entrance prices for Mozart’s residence:
Students (6-18 years old): 2.50 €

Combined ticket for Mozart’s birthplace and Mozart’s residence:
Students (6-18 years of age): 3.50 €

For every ten students, one supervising adult is admitted for free.
Every further supervising adult pays 6.00 € per person (combined ticket: 10.00 €)

Groups of up to 30 people do not need to book their visit.
