I walked west, away from the old town, up the main road to the Bergkirche, to visit the Haydnmausoleum. First I found it was closed from 12:00-1:00 (which was in my notes if I'd bothered to read them), so I took a couple of pics in the church and went in search of food, returning later to pay my respects to Joseph Haydn for €1. The mausoleum, at the base of the north tower of the church, was built by the Esterházys in recognition of the fact that he'd spent a large part of his life in their service (and, let's be frank, had spread their good name far beyond the borders of the Habsburg Empire), although they didn't get around to it until 1832, 23 years after his death.
