The Haydn House Eisenstadt is the former home of the great musician and composer. Joseph Haydn acquired the baroque house together with the Haydn Herb Garden in 1766 as princely bandmaster at the Esterházy court and lived in it for twelve years. Haydn and Eisenstadt are inseparable. From 1761 on, Haydn worked as conductor for the Esterházy court for more than 40 years.

Nowhere else is Joseph Haydn's private life and work presented so comprehensively. In the carefully reconstructed rooms, in "Zimmer, Kuchl und Cammer", we encounter Haydn in such a variety of ways as few know him. Numerous furniture items and original instruments make this collection a true feast for all senses. Musically, we experience Haydn's work in his piano music, his string quartets and the great oratorios "The Creation" and "The Seasons".
