The formerly spectacular palace has seen far better times having suffered great indignations since the losses of the Habsburg empire and successive occupations led to disrepair. Gradually being returned to glory, we enjoyed our guided tour of that part now open but we understand it has now closed for 2 years of further renovation which hopefully will make it spectacular and bring many tourists to this quiet corner of the country

I went to this outstanding church to visit the Haydn Mausoleum and by chance I happened upon the Calvary ' Kalverienberg' stations. this a complex of wonderful, but dramatic baroque stations of Chris that lead you through a back stairwell into a grotto and you are led up to the precipices of the Chapel of Mercy. This with the back drop of the thought of how many pilgrims must have tread these old steps before you.

This museum houses an interesting collection of music instruments, pictures and items associated with the composer Joseph Haydn. It is not only interesting for the musically inclined visitor but it also gives insight into the time around 1770,when the composer lived and worked in this town at the palace of Esterhazy.

I have stayed in Eisenstadt several times as performing musician and researcher. Attending and/or performing at cultural events at Scholss Eserhazy is always a highlight of my stay. Events are of the highest quality and the ambiance will take you back to the 18th century. The cultivated audience in their traditional formal wear gives this experience a unique appearance, yet despite the formality of such events, I have always found the elegant concertgoers here to be friendly. A real highlight of any event that takes place here is admiring the stunning ceiling and perfect acoustics in the Haydnsaale.

Since art doesn't often get the environment to be shown properly, this gallery has all the options necessary to present a very wide variety of art. With an auditorium and a cinema, flexible walls which almost allow the ambiance of a white cube.
Unfortunately the exhibition currently shown, proves the dilemma. Once an artist does get to be exhibited, quantity goes before quality. Not for the pieces shown, but for the unfortunate density.
