One of the first legends I was told upon arriving in Vienna was a pleasantly terrifying tale of Templars.
The Blutgasse Street, just behind St Stephen’s Dom is one of the oldest and most interesting parts of the city. The medieval houses, forming a complex of seven old buildings (others include Fähnrichshof Nos. 3-9), were restored and improved in 1965 in exemplary historical fashion. Where lovers of Schubert used to meet in the cafe whose name was altered to “Zur lustigen Blunze”, there are now dwellings and artists’ studios. The name “Blutgasse” (Blood Lane) is without historical warrant. According to legend, however, when the French Chivalric Order of Knights Templar was dissolved here, so many templars were slain that the narrow lane ran with their blood.
The Blutgasse District also has one of Vienna’s special architectural features: the “Durchhäuser” (passage houses). The passages lead through one or more courtyards to the next street, passing from Blutgasse through picturesque galleried courtyards (the Viennese “Pawlatsch”) into Fährichshof and further into Singerstrasse.
Right next to the Blut asse is Domgasse. The street famous street where Mozart lived- Domgasse 5, which is managed by Wien Museum, has been part of the new Mozarthaus Vienna. The composer’s only surviving apartment has been refurbished and offers an opportunity to find out how Mozart lived with the aid of specially selected reference objects.
Visitors start their tour of the new Mozarthaus on the third floor, where they can learn details about Mozart’s lifestyle. The exhibition on the second floor focuses mainly on Mozart’s operas. he Wien Museum Mozart apartment on the first floor is the authentic core of the building - the rooms in which Mozart and his family actually lived. It is the largest, most elegant and most expensive apartment that Mozart ever had - and the only one in Vienna to have survived. It consists of four large rooms, two small rooms and a kitchen. Mozart lived there from the end of September 1784 until the end of April 1787. In these two and a half years he composed a number of major works including Le Nozze di Figaro.
Since you are right in the center of Vienna. It will not be hard to find good restaurants. One that is right next to the apartment is famous restaurant called Chamäleon. There is many cute restaurants and bars in basically every street.
The legend of Blutgasse goes back to the beginning of the 14th century. The Knights Templar, whose influence, wealth, and tax free status had become a thorn in the side of Royals indebted to them, were under attack. King Philip IV of France had been pressuring the church to take action against the Templars. On Friday the thirteenth of October, 1307, he finally made a move against the group, arresting and torturing Templars in France until they confessed to various blasphemies.
According to the Legend, the Knights had founded a secret Refugium in the Fähnrichshof in Vienna. When the Refugium was stormed in 1312, the street now known as Blutgasse was turned red with the blood of the Knights.TripAdvisor property ID 3582135...Read more
