Visit Schloss Esterházy in 2024

Schloss Esterházy, sitting gracefully in Burgenland's capital of Eisenstadt, chronicles the power and prestige of the Esterházy family, one of the most influential noble families in Central Europe. The palace's current form, heavily influenced by Baroque style, dates back to the late 17th century, though its roots stretch back to medieval times. The Haydnsaal, a world-famous concert hall within, is renowned for its impeccable acoustics, and it witnessed the genius of Joseph Haydn, who served as the Esterházy's court composer for almost 40 years. Beyond music, the palace boasts an array of rooms adorned with frescoes, tapestries, and artifacts that echo tales of yesteryears.
Schloss Esterházy stands not just as a monument to a noble family but as a crossroads where art, music, history, and Austrian culture harmoniously converge.
