Since the Middle Ages Vienna has been a place of music. Not only known minstrels frequented the city then, but also the Vienna boys choir was already founded in 1498.

The prime time of the city in this respect though was definitely the 18th and 19th c. when numerous composers lived and worked here to produce their immortal compositions.

Even if most of them were not originally from here they chose Vienna as their working place due to all the noble families that lived here then and offered work to them.

During a walking tour through the old town of Vienna one can still visit many places and addresses  where Mozart, Strauss, Beethoven, Schubert or others lived, worked, married or died.
