To celebrate his birthday some FUN FACTS ABOUT MOZART', born on January 27, 1756.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was a child prodigy, a musical genius recognized as one of the best classical composers of all time, and his repertoire spans opera to symphonies.

But he was also an excellent billiard player, spoke 15 languages, kissed an Austrian Empress in the days of rigid formality and four of his seven Christian names mean 'Beloved of God' in different languages.

And there is a chocolate covered candy named after him.



And another Word Of The Week is - Spassvogel, literally 'Fun Bird'.

Someone who makes others laugh, either intentionally ….........or perhaps not really!

There is much more to read and discover on the German Culture site, so if there is anything you would like to see featured, or if you have any Germany related questions or comments, then please feel free to contact me, either in the forum or via email.
