Quiz: Vienna - City of Music

Updated on June 15, 2011

Wir gehen spazieren

Vienna - the City of Music, so-named because of its strong connections with some top composers of classical music. Here you'll find the Museum of Music (really well worth a visit with some unique, educational and really hilarious interactive stuff).

Graceful buildings, massive palaces, opera, ballet, Marionettenteater (Marionette Theatre), concerts and dinners-with-concerts abound and vie for your attention and time. What a way to spend time (and money).

Old-style tea rooms, cakes, confections and great cuisine also challenge your ability to put stuff away.

Come with me on a little intellectual tour . . .

Lots of squidpoints available, of course!

      @Krafick: Yes, the music from Austria is wonderful. Beethoven did a lot in the old Austro-Hungarian Empire but was born in Germany. His wonderful Eroica Symphony was written for Napoleon but, when that Frenchman took on himself the title of Emperor, Beethoven scratched out his name from the music manuscript, in fury. That took place in Prague, where you can actually see the original manuscript..

      I've been to Austria but not Vienna. I love the music of the Austrian composers, especially Beethoven.

      I visited Vienna in the early 1970s. My most vivid memories are of the wonderful Opera House - I saw Madame Buttefly - and the delicious chocolate confections!!
