Haydn explosiv

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

This unique tour presents important art-historical exhibits from the collection and an impression of the lavish life and festivities at the princely court. Attractions include the Esterházy silverware – the world’s largest surviving Neoclassical silver tableware service – and a console table from the workshops of Giuseppe Briati in Venice. This exhibition also includes some fascinating glimpses of the palace’s past in the building itself. In a few places the original walls and floors have been uncovered revealing the layers of history contained within an over three-hundredyear-old palace.With the Haydn Ticket you can also visit the Haydnsaal.
