Rooms with stories to tell

Wander through the Esterházy family's state rooms on the bel étage and marvel at artistically significant pieces from their historical collection, including the Esterházy family silver - one of the largest ensembles of silverware preserved as a set. The tour will also give you a rare glimpse into the palace building's history.

A stroll through the first floor reveals the story of an extraordinary and strong personality - Melinda Esterházy, née Ottrubay. You'll get to know the princess as a person - not only as the prima ballerina assoluta - and experience an in-depth look at an existence filled with ups and downs, an ambitious career, and a dramatic life away from the stage.

On the ground floor, the life of Joseph Haydn, First Kapellmeister and composer in the service of the Esterházy princes, is brought impressively and vividly to life. Multimedia stations, installations and displays explore the works of this musical genius from his beginnings in Eisenstadt and Esterházy to his later career, and bring into focus his importance as a composer.

You'll experience the 'bacchanalian' side of the Esterházys deep in the palace's 300-year-old cellar vaults. With over 700 rare, unusual, and at times long-forgotten items of wine and viniculture - from historic casks to the oldest beam press in Burgenland - the history of wine production and wine culture under the Esterházy princes is vividly presented.
