  • This architecturally unusual church is built in two parts. The main section, the church proper, is approximately a square. The interior is in Baroque style, a trompe-l’œil fantasy in pinks and greys.....  more »
  • Another Austrian church, interesting stations of the cross and we heard the Haydn organ, the main reason for our visit. Otherwise, not a stand out attraction.  more »

  • The Bergkirche is a church of Catholic denomination and it was built in the early 18th century by Prince Paul Esterházy. Eisenstadt was the seat of the Esterházy family, and the church lies just a short walk to the west of the family's main palace. In addition to housing Haydn's tomb, the Bergkirche is notable in the history of music in that it was the scene of the premiere of most of the six late masses that Haydn wrote for his patrons during the final phase of his career. Later, Ludwig van Beethoven led the 1807 premiere of his Mass in C in the church.
