Vienna Welcomes New Museum Dedicated to Beethoven

A new Beethoven Museum has opened its doors in Vienna, Austria, shedding light on the life and work of the great composer.

Following its opening at the end of November 2017 with two open-house days, fans can now expect to look forward to a stage-managed visitor flow, which is structured around a range of information relating to Vienna’s cultural history and Beethoven’s output.

Visitors to the building’s back garden can also expect an oasis of quiet reflection during a busy day.

An additional bonus for visitors is that the new museum is surrounded by wine taverns of Vienna’s famous 19th district.

Three apartments linked to Beethoven have long since become outposts of the Wien Museum. The apartment at Probusgasse 6, in the 19th district suburb of Heiligenstadt, has grown over the years from a small memorial site into the major new Beethoven Museum it is today.
