Heiligenstadt, Vienna

Heiligenstadt, Vienna


Heiligenstadt is a part of the Vienna district Döbling.

The name means "holy city"; Saint Severinus of Noricum is said to have preached here.

Ludwig van Beethoven wrote his Heiligenstadt Testament in Heiligenstadt, but not in the house Probusgasse 6 which today is presented as Beethoven's dwelling in 1802. As a matter of fact here is no proof that he ever lived in this house.

In 1892 Heiligenstadt became part of the city of Vienna, together with surrounding Vororte. Between 1927 and 1930, Vienna's largest "Gemeindebau" ever, Karl-Marx-Hof, was built in Heiligenstadt.
