Salzburg is in fact his birthplace, and you’ll be able to discover many of the places associated with the composer, such as the Mozarteum, Mozart Square with its statue of the famous composer, and the Mozart House. Thanks to your private guide, you’ll learn all about his life and work, as well as a whole host of fascinating anecdotes.
