The main building of the Mozarteum Foundation is located in the heart of the old city of Salzburg, right next to the beautiful Mirabell Gardens. It was built between 1911 -1914 by Richard Berndl in the art deco architectural style and houses two concert halls, connected by a charming garden, the library “Bibliotheca Mozartiana” and the offices of the Mozarteum Foundation – some of Salzburg’s most beautiful event locations.
The concert halls and the garden may be rented for events of all kinds – concerts, seminars or gala dinners.
Due to the renovation works a rental will not be possible before autumn 2022.
The Grosse Saal (Great Hall), with its unique ambiance and ornate splendor, is suitable for concerts seating up to 800 visitors.
The excellent acoustics enhance concerts with soloists, chamber music ensembles or even large orchestras with programs ranging from classical to light music. The special ambiance gives every event a festive and exclusive atmosphere – whether for a product presentation or a shareholder’s meeting.
Since May 2010, a new organ, the Propter Homines Organ, has graced the Great Hall of the Mozarteum Foundation.
Concert seating: ca. 800 visitors

The Villa Vicina, in the direct vicinity of the Mozarteum at Schwarzstraße 30, offers space for concerts and events such as readings, workshops etc. in a small, refined setting with up to 150 visitors. The new, bright and inviting event room of the Mozarteum Foundation is accessible barrier-free via a lift and equipped with state-of-the-art technology. The wall design was conceived in collaboration with acoustic professionals. A closer look is worthwhile here, as Wolfgang Amadé Mozart is quoted: soundwaves from Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto K. 622 encompass the room. In addition, there is a spacious bar and cloakroom area. In summer, concert breaks can be enjoyed in the beautiful garden.
In the newly adapted building, a Wilhelminian villa from 1873, the after-work concerts, song recitals and chamber music evenings of the current concert season as well as events of the DIALOGE Festival and the Mozart Week will find a new venue in the future.
