On January 27, 2006 – the 250th anniversary of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s birth - this last surviving residence of the composer (among a dozen different addresses he had here) was opened to the public, at Domgasse 5. He lived at this address from 1784 to 1787 with it's grand first floor apartment of four large rooms, two small ones and a kitchen. Some of his happiest years were spent here where he lived longer than at any other address. During this time he was a celebrated composer with a wide circle of friends, giving concerts at the houses of Viennese nobility. His most popular opera The Marriage of Figaro was writtten here.
