Because might and money and most of the cultural activities belonged to the sovereigns the courts were welcomed destinations and performing places for the Mozart family. Two times, at the beginning and at the end of his life (K. 594) W.A. Mozart travelled to Frankfurt, probably also visiting Offenbach, where later his musical remains had been published.
