Austria: Birth House of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

On Tuesday I got fourteen cards from Austria.

One of them shows the Birth House of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The House is located at Getreidegasse 9 in Salzburg's Old Town. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born there in 1756 and lived there until the age of 17. A museum is located in the Birth House since 1880.
I sent it from my holidays in Austria.

With a matching stamp:
Definitive (from set of sixteen) (issued 01-03-2015)
220th death anniversary of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (issued 05-12-2011)

In Salzburg I also bought some other postcards about Mozart. They include a map of Mozart's voyages, the Mozart Family and a collage of important stages in Mozart's childhood.
