The most famous building in the Getreidegasse is Mozart's Birthplace at # 9, which is today the location of the Mozart Museum. This musical genius was born here in the middle of 18th centuries.
On the first floor there room for temporary exhibitions, the second floor presents Mozart's World of Opera with stage designs and the documentation on productions. On the third floor is Mozart's family display with a oridinal furniture and personal objects.
In January 1997 the UNESCO decided to take Salzburg's historic city center in the list of world heritage sites. The center is a Baroque gem and is world wide known. Highlights are, for example, the cathedral or Mozart's birth house.
