The Haydn-Ticket includes:
Joseph Haydn served the Esterházy princes as Hofkapellmeister and composer for over 40 years. Multimedia stations, project installations, and unusual exhibits offer an insight into the life of this musical genius – from his early compositions in Eisenstadt to stardom in London and his late work – and also explore his influence as a composer both in the past and the present. Included in the displays are the maestro’s personal and professional documents as wellas original instruments like the fortepiano that belonged to his patron Princess Maria Josefa Hermenegilde.
Highlights of Esterházy Palace
