Museums Composer Residences

Beethoven lived in Vienna for nearly 40 years - this is why most of the local Viennese consider Beethoven Austrian, and not German - which he actually was....

He spent nearly a decade of his life in Vienna living in this house (4th floor), the rest he mostly lived with one of his many patrons - as they were from nobility, he spent most of his life living in palais in Vienna. Here he worked on his 4th, 5th, 7th and 8th symphonies, among others, and above all on his opera 'Fidelio'.

When you visit the museum you will not only see documents illustrating the life and work - but check out the portrait of Beethoven by W. Mähler, it is one of his better known portraits, as well as many personal items owned by the composer.
