Palace Tour

Take a look at the exhibition „The apartment of the Princess“, the Palace Chapel and the world famous Haydnsaal.

The palace tour shows the magnificent apartment of the Esterházy wives and provides a glimpse into the lives and worlds of three charismatic ladies: Maria Josefa Hermenegilda, née Princess Liechtenstein, passionate patroness of Joseph Haydn; Maria Theresia, née Princess von Thurn und Taxis, lionized beauty at the Congress of Vienna, and Lady Sarah Child-Villiers.

Meet personalities from the past and discover the fascinating and moving stories of their loves, marital bliss and troubles. The palace chapel and the Haydnsaal – world-famous for its acoustics – are further highlights of this tour.
