Eisenstadt

Steeped in music, political history, and stone fruit crops, this Eastern Alps town was home to the great 18C composer Haydn.

Eisenstadt is a city in Austria, the state capital of Burgenland. In the Habsburg monarchy, Kismarton (Eisenstadt) was the seat of the Eszterhazy Hungarian noble family. The composer Joseph Haydn lived there as Hofkapellmeister under Esterházy patronage. Eisenstadt lies on a plain leading down to the river Wulka, at the south foot of the Leitha Mountains, about 12 kilometres (7 miles) from the Hungarian border.
