Haydn's Herb Garden

The Haydn's family garden hut with its herb gardens represents a true rarity. 
When Joseph Haydn bought his house in the city in 1766, he also acquired the little garden by the hospital, situated outside the city walls, and the little wooden hut.

Haydn transformed this small piece of land in a flower and herb garden and not only came there to seek peace and quiet, but also to compose.

The remains of the kitchen and herb garden have been transformed into a show garden with plants that were en vogue in Haydn's times. It invites the visitors to learn more about century old recipes and herbal secrets.
