Ludwig van Beethoven

Vienna—“music capital of the world”, “Austria, land of music”: these attributions have lost none of their popularity ever since the 19th century. Numerous memorial sites and monuments are found in Vienna, and the Wien Museum maintains eight former homes of musicians, among them, three from Beethoven alone. Beethoven came to Vienna as a twenty-two year old pianist and composer in 1792 and lived here for thirty-five years until his death in 1827. In addition to autographs, the memorabilia collection for Beethoven contains mainly objects “about” him, about his music and life and work in Vienna.
