For Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827), his stays in Heiligenstadt, which was at that time still a rural suburb of Vienna, were characterised by profound feelings. He suffered from hearing difficulties and hoped to find a cure by visiting the sanatorium in Heiligenstadt, which is located immediately adjacent to Mayer am Pfarrplatz. As early as 1802, Beethoven had documented, in his own distressed words, his despair over his hearing difficulties in the “Heiligenstädter Testament”.
