Beethoven's chamber music concert

Music belongs to Vienna, as music belongs to Beethoven. We love this tradition and organize concerts every weekend with chamber music at the highest level, emphasising,how could it be otherwise, the Viennese classic. Michael Babytsch on cello and Pavlo Kachnov on the piano are highly talented musicians who present works from Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven or other famous musicians. During the intermission a free glass of champagne is being served. By the way, the Bösendorfer grand piano was owned by Mrs Ludwig`s mother Sissy, who was a great pianist.
Look forward to a relaxed, intimate evening. All hotel guests are welcome.

Quiz night at the Beethoven

For many years, it is an indispensable part of the evening entertainment in England and in pubs around the world: the Pub Quiz! Quiz, that is, the guests of the evening join together to teams (4-6 people) and answer 20 challenging questions from all areas of knowledge. (German & English). The entry fee per guest is 6 Euro, this goes into the jackpot.  The winning team of the evening receives a prize. The team that answers all 20 questions correctly hits the jackpot.

Beginning of October 2014, Hotel Beethoven Wien launched the first Hotel Pub Quiz in Vienna of its kind. Promising to have incredibly tough and humorous questions. During the Quiz culinary delights are served by radio Ö1 cook Colette Prommer.  

We look forward to a fun evening with you! Please register under the reception. Barbara Ludwig & Team

4-star hotel situated on Vienna’s Naschmarkt

The location of the Hotel on the Naschmarkt lets Vienna aficionados dive right into the typical Viennese lifestyle. The market, with its dozens of little stalls and selection of fresh fruit, vegetables and specialities, is a colourful and lively snapshot of Vienna, which is even more varied on Saturdays, with the farmer’s and flea market. In addition to the restaurants and cafés around the Naschmarkt, a trendy restaurant and bar scene has developed in the market area.

Coupled to culture

The culturally committed Ludwig family, which owns the hotel, sponsors numerous Viennese cultural institutions, such as the Albertina, the Mumok and the Musikverein and inspires Vienna aficionados  to special cultural delights: invitations to previews, exhibition openings, museum visits and preferential ticket orders at the Musikverein.

In a quiet location near the Vienna Secession

The Beethoven is an elegant, 6-storey, historic building, which was constructed in the Neorenaissance style in 1902 on the traffic-calmed Papagenogasse. Vienna aficionados are in good hands in the calming, tastefully furnished hotel rooms, amidst the pulsating life of Vienna’s cultural and culinary heart.

Interview Barbara Ludwig

Which room is your favorite?

The "Bertha Zuckerkandl room", a free spirited woman with a big heart.

This room is on the floor featuring strong women at the turn of the century. Because of their similar character - compassionate and at times impulsive, it also reminds me of my mother.  Anecdotes exist for both women--their joy of life, spontaneity and their unconstitutional approach.
