Mozarts House in Prague

Bertramka Villa, situated near the center of Prague, was originally a grand manor house surrounded by a beautiful vineyard. It was made famous because the world renowned composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was a frequent visitor and it was here that he composed some of his most popular works.

He first visited the villa in 1787 at the request of the owners, composer and pianist Frantisek Xaver Dusek and his wife Josefina Duskova who was a soprano singer. They were friends with Mozart's family and are given credit for staging Mozart's opera, the "Marriage of Figaro", for the first time in Prague. During this time, he quickly finished his work 'Don Giovanni' a day before its premier performance.

Mozart spoke fondly of his visits to the Bertramka Villa and was said to have commented that some of the most beautiful moments of his life were spent here.

In 1956, the villa was converted into a museum dedicated to Mozart and the Duseks. The villa has been tastefully restored with much of the original interior either in its original state or restored as closely as possible to how it would have looked in Mozart's time. The original wooden ceiling in a room purported to have been Mozart's bedchamber has been excellently restored.

The museum consists of seven rooms, filled with Mozart memorabilia and items owned and used by the Duseks. On display are documents, musical instruments, including a piano said to have been used by Mozart, letters, personal items, manuscripts and even some of Mozart's hair.

The villa is also used to hold classical and chamber musical concerts and, in the grounds, the Garden Salon, with its original 18th century murals, is also used for concerts. Outside concerts are held in the summer months.

An audio guide is available in several languages which will guide you throughout the museum.
