In 1867 the world-famous waltz “The Blue Danube”, Austria’s “unofficial anthem” was composed in this apartment by Johann Strauss. Johann Strauss lived here for seven years. At the time, Praterstraße was a fashionable and elegant suburban street. His instruments, furniture and paintings not only reflect his work as a composer, musician and conductor, but also his private life.
