Walking in Vienna’s Schubertviertel
If you have been to Vienna before, then you have likely walked somewhere through a Schubertgasse or a Schubertpark. While Mozart and Beethoven were adopted sons of Vienna, Franz Schubert was born here – and died here. A walk off the beaten path takes you through the Schubertviertel, a neighbourhood that carries the composer’s name.
