Beethoven Museum Tours

Beethoven Museum
An apartment located in Vienna’s suburb of Heiligenstadt, away from the bustle of the city, holds special meaning for many musicians. Here, Ludwig van Beethoven composed many of his famous symphonies and sonatas. In 1802, the composer retreated to this apartment in the countryside and wrote a letter to his brothers. In the famous unsent document, called the Heiligenstädter Testament, Beethoven expressed his despair over his advancing deafness. In the letter, he describes what it was like to be going deaf, he dealt with feelings of deep anger, and ultimately he found a way to continue with his life and his music. Other exhibits at the Beethoven Museum (or Beethoven Museum in Heiligenstadt) take a look at the compositions he created in the summer of 1802, and show the visitor what the area of Heiligenstadt was like at that time. Another room in the apartment examines the composer’s last months of life – and his death in the Schwarzspanierhaus (which no longer exists). The apartment’s rooms remain intact, and visitors can really get a sense of why this place was a calm writing retreat for the famous classical composer.

250. Birthday, Beethoven in Vienna a Private Afternoon Green Urban Hike

250. Birthday, Beethoven in Vienna a Private Afternoon Green Urban Hike

For Beethoven’s 250. birthday we visit some of his favorite and most inspiring suburban summer retreats – Nussdorf, Heiligenstadt, Grinzing and the Vienna Woods. 1802 in Heiligenstadt Ludwig realized losing his hearing. By then he only had written two Symphonies. The cozy summer retreat in Probusgasse contrasts sharply with the internal drama that took place here. A panoramic bus-ride brings us up to Kahlenberg for the cities most beautiful vista. A pleasant downhill hike passes vineyards, hidden garden tavernas and ends in one of Vienna’s most sought after residential areas. Beethoven liked extensive walks and although it all looks different nowadays, the spirit can still be felt on the edge between city and nature. Beethoven-Gang and Eroica-Gasse bring us back to Pfarrplatz where Ludwig spent one of his summers at Mayer am Pfarrplatz and the tour may open-end. We do it like the locals do it and use public transportation (metro, bus and tram) for this afternoon experience.
