Ludwig van Beethoven (1770–1827) lived periodically for a total of eight years in the house of his patron Johann Baptist, Baron of Pasqualati, on the Mölker Bastei. The first great work that Beethoven composed here was the opera “Leonore”, which was subsequently renamed Fidelio against the composer’s will. The Pasqualati House retains the form in which it could be found in 1791.
