Source of inspiration

On the trail of the great composer

Beethoven spent his summers in Baden for 15 years.



It was here that he composed essential parts of his 9th symphony, the European anthem. A walk through the Helenental valley is said to have inspired him for the "Ode to Joy".

Here the Beethoven hiking trail is dedicated to the great composer, which he once walked in long sections. It is a reminiscent of the special relationship between Beethoven and the region. One part of the route is the legendary and much-sung "Wegerl im Helenental", a promenade on the left bank of Schwechat leading from Baden to the Krainerhütte.
