  • Resting place of Haydn and his two skulls. And very curious Kalvarienberg (a set of baroque sculptures representing the stations of the cross, dislocated on various levels.
  • A very beautiful Kirche, recommend to see outside and inside completely.
  • A beautiful place and important because of Joseph Haydns mausoleum
  • Haydn's mausoleum is also located here.
  • Haydnkirche is a very cool place to visit, great architecture and design!
