Baden, Austria

This is the third entry of a series of posts from my Europe trip. Find the first one here.

On my third day in Vienna, I took a day trip to the small town of Baden, Austria. It was where Beethoven spent much of his time and I believe he lived there for a short time as well.

After getting off of the tram, I looked for any sort of map or sign that would point me in the way of the Beethoven Museum. I ended up stumbling upon the Tourist Information Centre. The Tourist Information Centre consisted of a lady at a dest and a few leaflets. On the map, I noticed that the natural swimming pools are a big deal in the town and Beethoven is not. I think the Puppet Museum got a larger advertisement then the Beethoven Museum…and I soon found out why.

Turned out that the Beethoven Museum was closed for reservations and all I could see was the outside of the house.

On the huge hill next to the town, there was a Beethoven Memorial. Yay! Baden wasn’t a complete waste of time.

The memorial was about halfway up the full height of the hill so I continued to the top because I love getting views over the cities I visit.

After stopping at a little cafe for lunch owned by a cute little old lady who didn’t speak much English, it was time to head back to the hostel in Vienna.

Note to self: check to see if things are closed for renovations before traveling.
