Without a guide, you would mistake this apartment block for yet another beautiful palace in Vienna. But there’s a big chance that there’s a person of significance living in one of these beautiful homes sometime in history. Here at the Pasqualati House on Mölker Bastei, that person was Beethoven. Beethoven’s former apartment is now a museum, showcasing displays of art... More

Just five small rooms with some manuscripts, paintings and other items. For the price, it may not be worth it unless you are really interested.

Great to see HIS piano and 1 or 2 other personal objects but experience very much pales compared with the wonderful Haydnhaus or the info rich Mozarthaus. Crucially for anyone with no German there are neither audio guides nor English translations of info on display. So lots of portraits but no idea who most of them were beyond their name.... More

I walked into Beethoven's Apartment on a weekday morning at around 10am. I walked up the four levels of stairs thinking about how his jam session partners brought their instruments up to his place. It was amazing because we toured the location during the Christmas season. There were less tourists and at this time of day, I had the whole... More

Having waited years of my life to finally stand in the same room that Beethoven once lived and composed, it was very disappointing to say the least, that one of the first things learned upon entering his apartment is that it was more than likely not his "actual" apartment. He lived across the hall and that room's rented?? But they... More

I knew that the exposition is not very rich. But I would have never forgiven myself missing a chance to express my gratituge to the Genius. The building is situated in a quiet picturesque corner of old Vienna. One way or another it is worth visiting.

We entered in a small ugly hall ... we should have understood at this point! Beethoven probably turns twice in his grave each time someone pays to visit this place which was not his flat ... There are some interesting things but without translation and I think that the German texts wasn't giving many more information! The staff is not... More

Do not bother to visit. Unless you would like to see Beethoven's salt and pepper cellars and sugar container. Oh yes and one painting. Because that is all that is authentic about the place. Not even the piano was Beethoven's. And lots of photocopies of his manuscripts in glass cases. On the wall is an explanation that these were Beethoven's... More

One of the things that you will learn here is that Beethoven probably did not live in this apartment and it is more likely that he lived in the one next door. This is a small museum with four rooms--it's an old apartment. They have a set of headphones to listen to some of Beethoven's works, but they did not... More

The Beethoven Museum, the Pasqualatihaus, is in the Mólker Bastel across the Ringstraße from the Univerität but not actually at street level. So, you will need your wits to find it. It is in the bloc on your left, the one that peers down on Mölker Bastel. On your left too, you will see some steps. Climb these and, at... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
