Land der Berge, Land am Strome English: Land of the mountains, land on the river National anthem of Austria Lyrics Paula von Preradovic Music Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Adopted 1946
Land der Berge, Land am Strome (Land of the mountains, land on the river) is the national anthem of Austria.
Nineteen days before his death on December 5, 1791 Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart composed his last complete work, the "Freimaurerkantate", KV 623. In parts of the edition of this cantata there appeared the "Chain Song" KV623A. To this melody the Austrian National Anthem is sung. The lyrics were written by the writer Paula von Preradovic. On October 22, 1946 it was declared Austria’s official national anthem.
In 2005, Women’s Minister Maria Rauch-Kallat stated her objection to the words ’sons’, ’fraternal’ and ’Fatherland’ in the lyrics and proposed changes. However, this was quickly dismissed as a news-item in times of little other news.
