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
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
I did a double trip of Beethoven museum and Haydnhaus in the same morning. The museums open at 10am and close for an hour at 1pm for lunch. You can do both back to back if you hustle and know the tube system. The Haydnhaus...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

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
its small shops and cafés. It leads from Mariahilfer Strasse to Windmühlgasse. For a glimpse into the world of early 19th century theater, visit Semperdepot, the former depository for theatre decoration, which now hosts art exhibitions and fairs.
