The burrough of Gumpendorf-Mariahilf was the place where composer Joseph Haydn returned to in 1795, after his journeys to London. He moved into a large house, for his final years.

Haydn died at the end of May in 1809, shortly after an attack on Vienna by the French army under Napoleon. He was 77. Among his last words was his attempt to calm and reassure his servants when cannon shot fell in the neighborhood.
