In 1793, Joseph Haydn a world renowned classical composer, bought this former suburb house in Haydngasse 19, now part of Vienna, and had it converted and another story added. This house, which served as his home for 12 years, was where Haydn composed the majority of his late works, among them the Grandiose Oratorios, The Creation, and The Four Seasons. This was the last resting place of Hayden and is where he died on May 31, 1809. To mark the 200th anniversary of his death, the permanent exhibition in the Haydnhaus was completely redesigned. The focus of the house is on the last years of the composer’s life, linking them to the political and social setting of his time. The museum inside the Haydn House contains a collection of his actual instruments as well as plenty of his original manuscripts.
