But there is so much more to discover: Exhibitions and galleries offer insights into all forms of art, from classical to contemporary and modern. Or discover Burgenland and its history at one of the museums: The private life and work of Joseph Haydn is presented more comprehensively at Haydn-Haus, Eisenstadt, than anywhere else.
