Tales from the Vienna Woods (original Geschichten aus dem Wiener Wald) is the most famous play by Austrian writer Ödön von Horvath. It first performed in 1931 in Berlin. Johann Strauss wrote a piece of music with the same name (which is generally called "Geschichten aus dem Wienerwald"). This is where the title of the piece is from.
