In the footsteps of Beethoven in Vienna – At home with the maestro
Ludwig van Beethoven lived and worked in Vienna for 35 years, and the city inspired much of his creative output.
Three patrons from the high nobility in Vienna granted him an annual stipend of 4,000 guilders: Prince Lobkowitz, Prince Kinsky and Archduke Rudolf of Austria. Visit with me two former residences, one in Heiligenstadt, the other in the city center. Beethoven lived close to famous wine taverns and he is known to have enjoyed the Viennese wine during his stay here.
