Viennese Wine Autumn

Vienna has something unique for a big city: 700 hectares of vineyards. About 140 winegrowers tend to the vineyards on Kahlenberg, Nussberg, Bisamberg, and Mauer - areas where the Danube and the nearby Vienna Woods create an optimal microclimate. Every year in autumn, the Vienna Wine Hiking Day takes place. Visitors can explore the picturesque wine landscape on four different routes. During the Wine Hiking Day, Viennese vintners open their cellars at many stops and offer tastings of exquisite wines and local cuisine. Throughout the year, you can visit Heurigen and immerse yourself in the cozy atmosphere accompanied by traditional Austrian music.

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.

Next concert dates are:

Sunday, 17 September at 5:00 pm

Viennese water

Just turn on the tap and enjoy spring water? This is possible in Vienna. Vienna's high spring water begins its journey in the Styrian-Lower Austrian Alps and arrives in Vienna no more than 36 hours later in drinking water quality, without pumping and under the strictest controls. Vienna is not the most liveable city in the world for nothing!

Quiz at the Beethoven!

For many years it has been an indispensable part of evening entertainment in England and in pubs all over the world: the Pub Quiz.

Pub Quiz: Guests join together in guessing teams (4 to 7 people) and answer as a team 20 tricky questions from all areas of knowledge.

The winning team of the evening is rewarded with a bottle of champagne; the team that answers all 20 questions correctly hits the current jackpot!

The "Quiz im Beethoven" takes place on the first Tuesday of every month in the hotel's mezzanine. Outrageously difficult and funny questions, together with Viennese delicacies and other classics of upscale bar culture, make heads spin and create a great atmosphere.

If you book quickly, you are sure to be there. You are also welcome to book individually or in pairs, in which case the tables will be mixed.

Take the current dates from our hotel website or ask at the reception - we look forward to seeing you! Also spontaneous, or you can send an e-mail to

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.

The Feel Good Store

The Feel Good Store is a special place in the heart of Vienna and a great concern of mine. We want to support Ukrainians displaced by the war by providing them with urgently needed items such as clothing, personal care items and household goods free of charge.

The Feel Good Store is run by Austrian individuals, companies and Ukrainian volunteers and also acts as a space to socialize and exchange information.

Ukrainians in need can make an appointment by phone (+43 677 643 113 53) and pick out some clothes and other essentials for their personal use free of charge.

Donations can be dropped off during opening hours.

LVDWIG - die Bar an der Wien

LVDWIG - die Bar an der Wien

Anyone who knows Vienna loves the contradiction of this city. High culture and coziness, cosmopolitanism and petit bourgeoisie at the same time. Lvdwig is an ode to this unique lifestyle. A hand-picked cocktail menu, music and people as colorful as this city is. The design is by architecture legend Gregor Eichinger, the drinks by Isabella Lombardo. The bar is, by the way, also open during the daytime which is an advantage as it’s nestled in the cultural and culinary heart of the city - between the Secession, Naschmarkt and Theatre an der Wien.  After enjoying your drinks, you can choose to never leave the hotel and retire upstairs to one of our lovely rooms.

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.

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.

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.
