Music is a universal language– and Vienna is the city of music. Mozart, Haydn, Schubert, Beethoven and the Strauss dynasty all influenced the city. We show you where they lived, how they lived and we will tell you exciting and interesting stories about these musical geniuses. We will also pay a behind-the-scenes visit to the famous Vienna State Opera.

johann straussStaatsoper (The Vienna State Opera). The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra is responsible for the incomparable sound whilst unforgettable performances in the past and in the present are due to performances from stars such as: Maria Callas, Agnes Baltsa, Jessey Norman, Anna Netrebko, Placido Domingo, Luciano Pavarotti, José Carreras, Rolando Villazon and conductors such as Leonard Bernstein, Carlos Kleiber, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Riccardo Muti. Gustav Mahler and Herbert von Karajan were among the directors of the Opera. Also, the legendary Vienna Opera Ball is an annual international society event which takes place in the Vienna State Opera building. This ball is one of the highlights in the Viennese ball calendar.

Mozarthaus Vienna. It is the only one of Mozart's apartments in Vienna that still exists today and  is situated just behind St.Stephen's Cathedral. Here he penned his best compositions, including his most popular opera "The Marriage of Figaro"; here he practised together with Joseph Haydn and here he spent the happiest years of his life and lived in grand style. Over an area of 1,000 m2, visitors are immersed in the vibrant world of Mozart.

Beethoven-Pasqualati-Haus.At the end of our walk we make a brief stop at the Pasqualati house – one of the 80 residences of Beethoven – where he lived together with his patron, Baron Johann Baptist of Pasqualati for more than eight years. This is where he composed, among other works, his opera "Fidelio", several symphonies and the piano piece "For Elise" (dedicated to his unrequited love, Therese Malfatti).

If you would like to see more musicians’ apartments, it is only possible by bus (car rental) and would extend the length of this tour. Simply choose from the options:

franz schubertSchubert Geburtshaus (Franz Schubert's birthplace). Franz Schubert was born here. The house is located in a former suburb of Vienna , in the current 9th district. Here, little Franz spent his childhood together with his family and was taught by his father. The largest part of his life is documented in this picturesque house.

Haydn Haus.The last apartment of Joseph Haydn is also entirely preserved. Here is where the bulk of his late work was composed, including the great oratorios "The Creation" and "The Seasons". This museum is an absolute must for Haydn fans! The focus of the permanent exhibition is on Haydn's last years – his music, his way of life.

The composer Johannes Brahms was a passionate admirer of Haydn who cared for the memory of his great idol – so there is also a Brahms memorial in the Haydn House. Napoleon, whose army occupied Vienna at the time, was a great admirer of Haydn; in May 1809, he posted an honorary guard in front of the house of the dying composer.

Johann Strauss Wohung (Johann Strauss apartment). The apartment is located in the district of Leopoldstadt where the King of Waltzes composed the world-famous waltz "The Blue Danube". Several mementos of Johann Strauss are on display in this house such as a special attraction: an Amati violin from the year 1911 that belonged to him. Johann was the most successful representative of the Strauss Dynasty and led a turbulent life (womanizer). He was the darling of his age and also an international star as he made worldwide tours – right across Europe, and even to Russia and America.
