Music is everywhere in Baden - Beethoven, Strauss and Lanner all had villas here. Mozart, Liszt, Carl Ziehrer, Schubert, Carl Zeller and Karl Millocker were all frequent visitors. Beethoven's former residence is now a museum and amongst its treasures is the composer's own piano-forte, which is kept in playing condition and visitors are sometimes invited to play!
