In the Bastionsgarten, which can be reached from the concert halls of the Mozarteum and is connected with the Mirabellgarten, stands the Zauberflöten-häuschen (“Magic Flute House”), a small wooden building where Mozart is said to have composed parts of the Magic Flute, K. 620. He is said to have been locked in the house by his librettist Emanuel Schikaneder to make sure that he completed the work on time, and to have met singers and rehearsed parts of the opera there. In 1873, the former owner, Prince Starhemberg, donated the Magic Flute House to the International Mozart Foundation. The Magic Flute House can be viewed when events are held in the Grand Hall of the Mozarteum during the summer.
