Fodor's Review

Beethoven lived in the Pasqualatihaus while he was composing his only opera, Fidelio, as well as his Seventh Symphony and Fourth Piano Concerto. Today his apartment houses a small commemorative museum (in distressingly modern style). After navigating the narrow and twisting stairway, you might well ask how he maintained the jubilant spirit of the works he wrote there. Note particularly the prints that show what the window view out over the Mölker bastion was like

when Beethoven lived here and the piano that dates from his era—one that was beefed-up to take the banging Beethoven made fashionable.
