In the early 19th century, Heiligenstadt was a small wine-producing village. It began to grow when its new healing baths started attracting many guests, including famous representatives of Vienna’s cultural life. Ludwig van Beethoven came seeking healing or at least an improvement of his advancing deafness. In this house, he worked on his Second Symphony, Variations Op. 34 and Op. 35, and parts of the three Violin Sonatas Op. 30.

At the Beethoven Residence Heiligenstadt visitors can also experience the despair at which Ludwig van Beethoven felt at his encroaching deafness which was threatening to rob him of his most valuable sense. This house is important historically as it was here where he wrote "Heiligenstädter Testament" to his brothers, in 1802.
