Johann Strauss Haus
What can you visit in Strauss' residence? Well, firstly many of his instruments and belongings connected to his musical world - i.e. not only was he a famous musician, but he also took it upon himself to become a conductor.
You will also get a good impression about his life as a private man: Strauss was a 'Lebemann', which means that he enjoyed life, music, pleasures, games and was attracted to the female side...he married 3 times during his rather short life.
You will also be able to admire one of his other talents - painting and caricatures - it is really quite remarquable how some of them illustrate the social setting of Vienna at that time....
