Discover the life and work of one of history's greatest classical composers in the magnificent concert hall where he worked and performed for over 40 years. This Fast Track ticket gets you into both the Haydn Explosive and the Highlights of Esterházy Palace exhibitions at Esterházy Palace. Celebrate Joseph Haydn's legendary career and explore the music and vibrant 18th-century lifestyle of the Esterházy court.
Dubbed the "Father of the String Quartet", Joseph Haydn's contributions to the world of classical music cannot be understated. As the Esterházy's resident composer and conductor, Haydn wrote and performed operas, symphonies, chamber music and masses for the prestigious family.
The Haydn Explosive exhibition captures the creative spirit of this musical genius, using interactive displays, projections, and historic artifacts to tell his life story. You can even see several original instruments and hand-written sheet music.
The permanent Highlights of Esterházy Palace exhibition transports you back to the palace's heyday, with a selection of beautiful objects from the Esterházy collection showing you the history of this beautiful Baroque building, as well as how the family lived and partied here.
