Haydnplatz 1 · interesting places nearby
This unusual church contains the white-marble tomb with Haydn’s reunited parts. It began life as a small chapel and in 1701 was transformed into a bizarre representation of Calvary, the mountain outside Jerusalem upon which Christ is thought to have been crucified.
