There is a little village in the shadow of the mountains by the Wolfgangsee (lake really), which is the birth place of Mozart’s mom. It’s name is St. Gilgen, which is the equivalent of St. Giles, a rather odd name for an Austrian town. Mozart actually never visited the city, though the tourist rhetoric associates him with the town, to get tourists to come. It is worth a visit all by itself anyway, as it is beautiful, rather like a little Swiss chalet village, as you will now see. Here are your tour guides 🙂
Ready to visit the place yet?
Did I mention that the place is crawling with gasts????
Turns out, every Mozart came here, including his sister after she got married, except Wolfgang Amadeus himself…. maybe he knew it was a tourist trap, a nice place to visit but…….
