Originally known as the Trabe, Trau or Tragasse (apparently from the Bavarian-Salzburg dialect word 'Troad', meaning grains), the Getreidegasse developed during the 11th to 14th centuries into a street of stately middle-class homes, with shops occupying the street level. Getreidegasse 9 was owned by the Hagenauer family, who in 1747 let rooms on the third floor to the newly-married Leopold and Anna Maria Mozart; the family continued to live there until 1773, when they moved to the 'Tanzmeisterhaus' on the Hannibalplatz (now the Makartplatz).
