BTHVN2020: gearing up for Beethoven's 250th birthday


Celebration of Beethoven's 250th Birthday in Vienna


Retrace the footsteps of Ludwig van Beethoven (born December 16, 1770, Bonn – died March 26, 1827, Vienna) in Vienna. At the age of 16, he travels from Bonn to Vienna for the first time to study under Mozart. Having barely arrived in the city, he has to leave again to hold vigil at his mother’s deathbed. Aged 22, he returns to Vienna as a student of Haydn (Mozart has since died), this time staying for good.

Discover the Beethoven Museum, his former residences, memorial sites, the places that witnessed his greatest triumphs and crushing lows, Gustav Klimt’s Beethoven Frieze, statues, burial sites, and even a cozy Beethoven Heuriger wine tavern.

In the Secession - the art nouveau museum you can see the Beethoven Frieze, created by Gustav Klimt in 1902

Music Events:


Fidelio // Vienna State Opera (Wiener Staatsoper)

Fidelio, Ludwig van Beethoven's only opera, received no less than three world premieres. The third version, which is performed at the Wiener Staatsoper, was first performed in 1814 at the Kärntnertortheater. Beethoven's Fidelio musically resembles a "Singspiel" while also showing heroic traits, the finale culminating in a jubilant apotheosis glorifying the ideals of liberty, equality, and fraternity. In his Fidelio, Beethoven manifests his vision that the belief, love, and hope of an individual can have great impacts - and even cause political systems to totter.
