Introducing Eisenstadt

The small capital of Burgenland is best known for its most famous former resident, 18th-century musician and composer, Joseph Haydn. Although it doesn’t have a large number of attractions for visitors, it does have a wonderful palace, a couple of good museums and a rather bizarre church. Its nightlife hums rather than buzzes, but taking in its sights can easily be done on a day trip from Vienna or as an excursion from pretty, lakeside Rust.
