Fountain to Mozart's mother
St. Gilgen
In front of the Mozart Memorial House, there is a small, inviting garden with a charming fountain by Toni Schneider Manzell, depicting Mozart's mother as a small girl.
Mozart Fountain on the Mozartplatz
St. Gilgen
The fountain on the Mozartplatz in St. Gilgen shows the young Mozart playing the violin, surrounded by birds spouting water. The fountain, which dates back to 1926, is the work of the Viennese art nouveau sculptor, Karl Wollek.
Parish Church
St. Gilgen
The marriage of Mozart's grandparents took place in the parish church of St. Aegidius and his mother, Anna Maria Walburga Pertl, was christened there on the same day as she was born (25 December, 1720).
Mozart's sister Nannerl married Johann Baptist Berchtold zu Sonnenburg there on 23 August 1784, and Mozart's grandfather and his brother-in-law are buried there.
Open daily from 8:00 a.m. until approx. 7 p.m.
Post Inn
Former house of the local judge of Lofer Johann Chrysostomus Wenzel von Helmreich zu Brunnfeld.
The former district court
St. Gilgen
The Prince Archbishop of Salzburg, Graf Anton von Harrach, charged Mozart's grandfather Wolfgang Nicolaus Pertl with building the old courthouse, a commission fulfilled between 1719 - 1720. From 1716 - 1724 he held the office of Rechtspfleger (local judge) in St. Gilgen.

Mozart's mother, Anna Maria Walburga Pertl, was born there on 25 December 1720. In 1724, her father died and the family moved to Salzburg, where she married Leopold Mozart, a native of Augsburg, in 1747.

In 1784, Mozart's beloved sister Maria Anna Ignatia, known as "Nannerl", and her husband move into the house where her mother had been born. "Nannerl" - herself a great musical talent - married a successor to her grandfather's office, the judge Johann Baptist Berchtold zu Sonnenburg. Nannerl lived in St. Gilgen until her husband's death in 1801. On the street side of the memorial house is a relief of Mozart's mother and Nannerl by the sculptor Jakob Gruber, which was unveiled in 1906.
