Gruber lived 28 years in Hallein serving as director of choral music, singer and organist. His grave is located near the parish church and in front of the building in which he lived. A central theme of Gruber's life was music and the creation of music. Memorial plaques at the grave-site and by his former home commemorate his musical contributions.
