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 house also has a small "Brahms Memorial Room" with Brahms' simple furniture, manuscripts and portraits.... More

Although not well marketed or done up, I actually enjoyed this more than Mozarthaus. Plenty of artefacts and information.

not huge but cozy house. near westbanhof station. good to see this house if you re interested in music. 한국어설명서는 없지만 빈서역에서 가깝고 잠시 들러 둘러보기 좋은곳입니다. 학생가격은4유로입니다. 규모는 크지않습니다.

Located not very far from Westbanhoff and MariaHilfer Strasse, Haydnhaus is located in a very quiet neighborhood and quite accessible to the tourists. The house itself is not big at all. but it has a charm from the past that hits you in the face as you enter open the big wooden doors. For 5 eur/person, you can visit the... More

The Haydnhaus is a bit out of the way (not right in the city center) but easy to reach and well worth a visit. This is the house where Haydn spent the last 12 years of his life and composed "The Creation," among other works. As others have said, the audio guide is worth the extra 3 euros. I found... More

Not busy location, yet good amount of info to keep us occupied for over an hour. Not in the 1st district and not touristy. My son and I enjoyed it. And unlike Mozarthaus, took all the photos and no one came after us. Visited the garden too! Admission was a steal at €4/pp, audio guide €3.

When Haydn retired, he moved here to what was then a suburb. There is a museum with information in German and English. You can see where he continued to compose, slept, entertained, and later died. There is a room dedicated to Brahms as well.

We had done the Beethoven house tour and then came to this one. Wow. So much better, the audio is well worth the extra cost (it isn't much anyhow) very informative. It wasn't very busy at all when we were there, at one stage it just seemed like us and the (virtual) parrot but that shouldn't put you off. Go!

I admit to expecting a bit more from the Haydnhaus, but being in the place where Haydn lived and died is remarkable, even without a museum around it. It's worth the trip if you're a fan of his music, or of music history, without question, but causal music lovers, and younger fans may find the house dry (quiet, boring). I... More

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
