Beethovenhaus, Baden

4.3
Ludwig van Beethoven kurte regelmäßig in Baden. In der Stadt der Sommerfrische von Kaiser Franz und dessen Familie tummelten sich Hochadel und Bürgertum, darunter die Förderer des großen Komponisten.

Im Haus Rathausgasse 10 stieg Beethoven in den Sommern 1821, 1822 und 1823 ab. In dieser Zeit schrieb er wesentliche Teile der 9. Symphonie.

Seit Herbst 2014 beherbergt dieses Beethovenhaus ein Museum neuer Art rund um die Person und das Musikgenie Beethoven. Die Besucher erleben Leben und Werk des Komponisten auf völlig neue, überraschende Weise. Die biedermeierlichen Wohnräume geben einen Einblick in das Leben und Umfeld des Komponisten in der Stadt Baden. Darüber hinaus werden seine Kompositionen, die in Baden entstanden sind, darunter die Neunte Symphonie, in besonderer Weise erfahrbar und hörbar gemacht.

Das Beethovenhaus Baden: ein authentischer Wallfahrtsort für alle, die nach dem Musik-Genie suchen.

Ludwig van Beethoven regularly took the waters in Baden. When Emperor Franz I spent his summers there with his family, Baden was bustling with members of the high aristocracy and upper middle class, including patrons of the great composer. In the summers of 1821, 1822, and 1823, Beethoven lodged at Rathausgasse 10, where he composed important sections of his Ninth Symphony.

In Beethoven’s time, Rathausgasse 10 was owned by a coppersmith in the ground floor and the composer logded in the upper floor. Since autumn 2014, the Beethovenhaus Baden has been home to a new type of museum. Visitors can look forward to an audio adventure and the chance for an in-depth encounter with the Ninth Symphony. The life led by the genius in Baden and its environs is vividly presented in compelling pictorial exhibits.

The original wall painting in Beethoven’s summer apartment was restored in 2014. The museum is the only one of its kind in the world and offers visitors an opportunity to immerse themselves in the composer’s life.

  • Beethoven's music, the 5th symphony and Ode to Joy made our visit very pleasant. It played all the time in the whole house. Not a lot of memorabilia there, in fact nothing is original but the house...  more »
