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

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

In recent years, I have fallen in love with Haydn and the music he wrote in the last decades of his life. I now understand a comment Leonard Bernstein made to the effect that one had to have reached a certain age before one could...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

The Haydnhaus is in a small, calm street. A nice garden if you want to just sit there a while, apparently Haydn loved his garden. I must say that this "Museum" is not meant for People who expect to see lots of beautiful old furniture,...More

In this house, Haydn had spent his last 12 years of life, composing such major works as "The Creation" and "The Seasons". This house/museum has various memorabilia, including Hadyn's manuscripts, portraits, posters, correspondences, furniture, harpsichord, etc. The house has a simple but charming garden. This...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.
