Renovation work in the lobby from August 12th to December 15th 2019

Dear Guests,

We will give our lobby a new, upgraded look.

The construction work will only affect the ground floor and will be done between the hours of 9:00 - 17:00. The noise disturbance should be minimal and all work will be done behind a dust protection wall.

It will remain business as usual from the Mezzanine level, where breakfast is served, up to the 6th floor. We look forward - as always - to your visit at the Beethoven.

Sincerely,
Barbara Ludwig and the Beethoven Team
 

VIENNA DESIGN WEEK 2019

Austria’s biggest and most international design festival addresses essential and topical issues relating to design. Designers from Vienna, Austria and all of Europe experiment, present and discuss. VIENNA DESIGN WEEK interlinks and activates the entire city and its design potentials.
From September 27th to October 6th, 2019, Vienna will once more become a “City Full of Design” for the 13th time in a row. The festival views design as an integral element of everyday life that far transcends any merely aesthetic contribution but rather acts as a multifaceted, deeply effective instrument of society.

For ten days in autumn, Vienna will again showcase design in its myriad formats – exhibitions, product presentations, workshops, participatory projects, talks and tours across the city – while this year’s focus district Alsergrund will reveal novel, surprising and trendsetting insights. The event will feature national and international projects, positions, creative and production processes as well as experimental approaches in the fields of architecture or graphics as well as product, furniture, industrial and social design. However, VIENNA DESIGN WEEK is not conceived solely for an expert audience but open to discourse in all directions by involving both an interested local public and visitors to Vienna. The objective lies in familiarising the widest possible audience with the innovations, concepts and design processes underpinning the products and systems that surround us.

Special gifts for special people

Are you looking for something special for a special person? A voucher with an individualized trip to Vienna could be a great idea!
Should it be something unusual or just classic? We are happy to help you with any idea of any kind and help you to create an unforgettable experience. Please contact us concierge@hotelbeethoven.at.

Beethoven's Salon Concerts

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, featuring none other than, Viennese classics.
Michael Babytsch on cello and Pavlo Kachnov on the piano are highly talented musicians who present works by Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven and other famous composers.
A complimentary glass of champagne is served during intermission. By the way, our Bösendorfer grand piano used to belong to Ms. Ludwig’s mother Sissy, a great pianist.
Enjoy a relaxed intimate evening. All hotels guests are welcome.

Quiz night at the Beethoven!

For many years an indispensable part of evening entertainment in England and in pubs around the world has been: the Pub Quiz! We host a quiz where the guests of the evening join together in teams (4-6 people) and answer 20 challenging questions from all areas of knowledge (German & English).

The entry fee per guest is 6 Euros which goes into the jackpot. The winning team of the evening receives a prize and the team that answers all 20 questions correctly wins the jackpot.
In October 2014, Hotel Beethoven launched the first hotel pub quiz of its kind in Vienna delivering incredibly tough and humorous questions. During the Quiz, culinary delights and drinks are served a la carte from our Bistro.

We look forward to a fun evening with you!  Please register under quiz@hotelbeethoven.at or at the reception.

Dates for autumn 2019 will be announced shortly!

Barbara Ludwig & Team

4-star hotel situated on Vienna’s Naschmarkt

The location of the Hotel on the Naschmarkt allows Vienna aficionados to dive right into a 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, even more varied on Saturdays, with the farmers' and flea market. Both on the market itself and the areas around it, a trendy restaurant and bar scene has developed.

Commitment to culture

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

Quiet location near the Vienna Secession

The Beethoven is an elegant, 6-storey, historic building, constructed in 1902 in the Neorenaissance style, on the nowadays traffic-calmed Papagenogasse. Vienna aficionados will feel at home in the peaceful, tastefully furnished rooms, amidst the pulsating life of Vienna’s cultural and culinary heart. 

Interview Barbara Ludwig

Which room is your favorite?

The "Berta Zuckerkandl room", dedicated to 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 - this historic figure reminds me of my mother.  Anecdotes exist for both women, their joy of life, spontaneity and their unconventional approach.
