Mozarthaus St. Gilgen

Das Mozarthaus in St. Gilgen

Mozarthaus St. Gilgen is situated in a prominent location in the picturesquely located excursion and vacation location of St. Gilgen on the Wolfgangsee. The town now proudly calls itself "The Mozart town on the Wolfgangsee".

The grandfather of W. A. Mozart, Wolfgang Nikolaus Pertl, was a judicial officer in St. Gilgen. He built the Pfleggericht St. Gilgen [St. Gilgen custody court] between the years of 1718 and 1720. On December 25, 1720, W. A. Mozart's mother, Anna Maria Pertl, was born in this building. W. A. Mozart's sister, Maria Anna, known as Nannerl, married the caretaker of St. Gilgen at the age of 33 and in 1784 moved into the house where her mother was born. She lived in this building, where her children and step-children grew up, for 17 years until the death of her husband. The building itself has served as a custody or district court from the time it was built until almost the present day. 2002 saw the closure of the St. Gilgen district court. In 2005, the building was purchased the by Mozartdorf cultural association and converted into a cultural and events building, the current Mozarthaus St. Gilgen.

This authentic Austrian cultural jewel now shimmers with a new sparkle and is open for hire all year round. During the summer months, visitors can discover the museum, with the souvenir shop and cafe. Regular cultural events invite visitors to simply enjoy the culture.
