Johann Strauß Wohnung

In 1867 in this apartment, Johann Strauss composed the world-famous waltz "The Blue Danube", Austria's "unofficial national anthem"! Strauss lived seven years on Praterstrasse, then a fashionable and elegant Viennese suburban street. 

His own instruments, furniture and paintings illustrate Strauss's work as a composer, musician and conductor, but the whole presentation brings Strauss close to us in private as well, a man who married three times, an enthusiast at billiards and cards, and a caricaturist. Moreover, there are reminiscences of his other apartments, the Vienna ballrooms and concert halls of his time, and also the other composers in the family circle: Johann Strauss the Elder and the talented brothers Josef and Eduard.
