Through Vienna with Beethoven
The brand-new sunglasses from Bose can be rented free of charge from Tourist Info on Albertinaplatz and make Beethoven's Vienna a really special sound experience. With the help of built-in headsets and perfect sound quality, Ludwig van Beethoven leads groups in person through Vienna: he gushes about his musical home of choice, accompanies the listeners to his personal favorite places, rides in the coach past Palais Lobkowitz and talks about his life and work at Theater an der Wien. The perfect sound of a Bösendorfer piano and Beethoven compositions recorded by the Wiener Symphoniker form the encore to this incomparable walk.
