Beethoven Wohnung Heiligenstadt

This house in the Vienna suburb of Heiligenstadt is dedicated to a crucial and devastating event in the life of Ludwig van Beethoven. It recalls the "Heiligenstädter Testament" he wrote in 1802 – the letter to his two brothers which he never sent and in which he expressed his despair over his advancing deafness. 

The exhibits document the background to this intimate testament, to the compositions of the summer of 1802, and to the summer resort of Heiligenstadt at that time. A second room takes a look at the last months in the life of the composer, and his death in the Schwarzspanierhaus, which no longer exists.
