New special exhibition from 13 February 2019
Mozart: Traveller across Europe
An exhibition of the Archive of the Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde in Wien in Mozarthaus Vienna
Mozart travelled more than any other composer in his time. He was well acquainted with much of Europe and the European music scene. This is the first exhibition on the theme of Mozart's artistic experiences in Europe: it covers the routes of his journeys and also what he encountered while travelling, what he gained for himself and how it influenced his music.
Curators: Prof. Dr. Dr.hc. Otto Biba

COMBINED TICKET DOM MUSEUM WIEN
Our neighboring museum on Stephansplatz, Dom Museum Wien has reopened following a comprehensive redesign.
Besides highlights such as the portrait of Hapsburg Duke Rudolf IV., largely considered to be the oldest portrait of the western world, and historic treasures from St. Stephen’s Cathedral, the museum boasts a large collection of modern and contemporary art. As of October, Mozarthaus Vienna and Dom Museum Wien will offer a combined ticket, allowing individual guests as well as groups to experience both museums, which are located a mere 100 meters apart, in the heart of Vienna’s historic city center.
