"Schubertiaden" and the
Landscape of the Lied

KurparkBaden bei Wien, formerly a favorite summer retreat of Mozart, Beethoven, Grillparzer, Eichendorff, and Hugo Wolf, is beautifully situated among the vineyards and wooded hills south of Vienna.

As the romantic landscape surrounding the spa has not lost its intimate relationship to the songs it once helped to inspire, walking tours are planned to sites in and near the Vienna Woods, including Beethoven’s pastoral haunts and many a rustic inn. Excursions through the Wachau Valley of the Danube and to the ancient monastery of Heiligenkreuz, where several of the Schubertiaden will take place, add further dimensions to the natural setting of the Lied.
