Strauss the Younger called Praterstrasse 54 home from 1863 to 1878 and composed the waltz, ‘The Blue Danube,’ under its high ceilings. Inside you’ll find an above-average collection of Strauss and ballroom memorabilia, including an Amati violin said to have belonged to him and oil paintings from his last apartment, which was destroyed during WWII.

The rooms are bedecked in period furniture from Strauss’ era. The residence is a municipal museum.
