In May 2005 my wife and I made a 4 day trip to Vienna to to get to know the places in which my heroes, Beethoven, Mozart and Schubert were living. Long had I been dreaming of it , but always it seemed to be too far for me (an 8 hour journey by train). In summer we got to know a kind family from Vienna in our vaccation in Italy who invited us to visit them. Well, that's what we happily did! Here now some pictures which are related to Beethoven...
Beethoven in Heiligenstadt (1802):
Beethoven in Mödling (1819):
