Beethoven Pasqualati House

Ludwig van Beethoven (1770–1827) lived in the house of his patron Baron Johann Baptist Pasqualati with some interruptions for a total of eight years. His first major composition in this house was the opera “Leonore”, which was later renamed “Fidelio” against his will. Here, you can admire the famous portrait of Beethoven by Willibrord Joseph Mähler and see an array of the composer’s personal items.
