It is a small and calm museum without tourist crowds. So you may have a glimpse on Haydn life in his last years – his oratorios, his working routine, his friends, his small garden, Vienna at the time. The audio guide is very useful, with...More

Atmospheric house but mostly written displays. I guess you need to buy the audio guide to hear any music. Lots of pictures and reproduction manuscripts. Lovely small garden.

Haydn spent his last years living here eventually dying here in 1809 aged 77. The museum is imbued with his spirit and is a beautiful place of pilgrimage. The audio guide has lots of extended musical clips of some of his later works which were...More

If you like Haydn music, this is the place to be. You will gravitate and will feel the composer's soul around you. Go to the small but beautiful garden. If you do not know whom Haydn was, go there, take the audio tour and you...More

I'm no music buff but I do appreciate history in all aspects. This is a self-guided tour and should only take an hour at the most to see everything. To see the actual scores, the pianoforte, to stand in the garden where Josef Haydn once...More

For any lovers of classical music, particularly the music of Joseph Haydn, this is a must visit. Haydn lost his job at Esterhazy when the orchestra there was disbanded. But he was then a free man & could retire with a pension in Vienna. He...More

Haydn's been my favourite composer since boyhood so we decided that since we only had time to visit one composer museum in Vienna, it should be this one. Glad we did - lovely exhibition (includes two of his own claviers) with beautiful bilingual displays (German...More

Vienna’s sixth district hosts high street shopping
heaven and pedestrian area Mariahilfer Strasse. The
weirdest local building is probably the city aquarium
Haus des Meeres, housed in one of Vienna’s six
remaining World War II defense towers, and topped with
a rooftop bar that offers stunning views over Vienna
and the centre. One of the most historic sites in the
area is the passageway of 18th century Raimundhof with

I think that if you nicely ask the guy at the desk, he might accept to push it in one of the non-public rooms behind him, they seem quite friendly. Enjoy your visit.
