Today's Austria was the country where W.A. Mozart was born (Salzburg 1756) and died (Vienna 1791). About two thirds of his live he stayed in Austria. The rest of his life he travelled through Europe. A lot of authentic venues are still signs of his genius.
On the way from Salzburg to Vienna and backwards he always stopped at Linz, to which he dedicated his famous "Linzer Symphony" K. 425. Often he went to Baden bei Wien (K. 618), which was the favourite health resort of his wife, Constanze. To Schwechat near Vienna two authentic visits are proved.
On the way from
The travelling route from Salzburg to Italy passed through today's province of Salzburg (Lofer) to the province of Tyrol with her capital Innsbruck.
An exceptional position has "St. Gilgen am Wolfgangsee". Even W.A. Mozart never visited this village, however St. Gilgen was the main focus of life for three persons of great influence to him.
Mozart's grand parents lived there as well as his mother before she married Leopold. Mozart's sister Nannerl lived at St. Gilgen for many years at the parents house of her mother after her marriage.
