Joseph Haydn (1732–1809) spent the last twelve years of his life in Gumpendorf, then an outlying village of Vienna. Having bought the house between two trips to England, he added a floor and moved there in 1797 aged 65. Haydn died in the house on 31 May 1809. To mark the 200th anniversary of his death in 2009, the permanent exhibition in the Haydnhaus was completely redesigned. It now focuses on the last years of the composer’s life, linking them to the political and social climate of the time.
