Mozarthaus

Musician's Memorials

In Vienna’s musician’s memorials - apartments of famous composers which have been turned into museums – you can see the furniture and objects that were owned by the artists themselves, as well as autographs, facsimiles of scores, paintings and photos. The most important works by the composers are usually played in historic or prominently cast performances and can be listened to with earphones.

The Mozarthaus Vienna, in which Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart composed "The Marriage of Figaro" and nearly resided as a person of exalted rank, can be found in the center of the old city, behind St. Stephen's Cathedral.

Many of the mementos displayed were originally in the possession of the Waltz King Johann Strauss who also lived in this house and wrote his greatest hit, "The Blue Danube." A Tip for Strauss fans: The Museum of the Johann Strauss Dynasty in the 9th district, which is the first museum in the world to present the family history and creative works of the entire Strauss family.

Visit the house where Ludwig van Beethoven wrote, among other compositions, his Fourth Symphony and his famous “Heiligenstadt Testament," in which he expressed desperation over his deafness.

The last apartment of Joseph Haydn has also been kept intact. Here, in the Haydn House, he created his great oratorios "The Creation" and "The Seasons"; today, the museum is a must-see for Haydn lovers.

One should also visit the house where the "king of lieder", Franz Schubert, was born. At the time, 16 families lived in that picturesque building – each family in an apartment consisting only of a room and a kitchen.

More than only a memorial is the Arnold Schönberg Center: it houses not only the estate of the founder of twelve-tone music and the founder of the "New Vienna School" – manuscripts, oil paintings, drawings, diaries and musical instruments – but it also shows special exhibitions and functions as a lively research center.
