The last few tourist trips I realized that it pays to do at least one major event that is a local expertise in the site visited. This makes a lasting and meaningful experience. If you do this, go to the best, regardless of the cost. In the case of Vienna, this would be classical music, where I have good memories... More

We saw a Mozart concert here in the golden hall and it was excellent. It is a bit difficult to find. It's actually behind the Hotel Imperial if you're needing a reference. I highly recommend a show here. We chose the front row of the balcony and they were perfect. The sound is amazing in the hall. We bought tickets... More

Enjoyed a piano recital here despite the inability to see the pianist. The seats/chairs are, in some areas, jammed together so it has best be a high quality performance to mitigate the physical pain.

Booked to join the guided tour to visit the building. Its smaller than what we see in the tv. But the painting and sculptures on walls and ceiling are quite artistic and impressive. It's really a world of music. Very regretful that we cant take photo. Don't miss the panda next to the building.

I have heard 17 concerts in the Musikverein in the past 6 years. I have heard the Wiener Philharmoniker, the Wiener Symphoniker, the Tonkünstler-Orchester des Niederösterreich, Bruckner Orchestra of Linz; as well as our own Cleveland Orchestra and Philadelphia Orchestra. The acoustics of the Musikverein are a marvel to hear: flawless top-to-bottom balance, flawless front-to-back balance, great dynamic range, wonderful... More

We saw the Simon Bolivar orchestra, booked online the 45 euro seats which ended up being on the stage, right behind the orchestra. We could read their sheet music! While you might think the acoustics would be unbalanced, it was a total treat to see the conductor (Dudamel's) face while he was conducting and a completely different experience from watching...

We were fortunate to attend an evening with the Vienna Symphony playing Beethoven and conducted by Phillippe Jordan. What an experience! Incredible acoustics, magnificent venue. All we dreamed it would be!

We had booked online for this concert (two of Beethoven's symphonies, the third and the fourth). The booking process was smooth and trouble-free. Getting to the place was easy, it is within walking distance of the museum uarter and also close to the subway. The music room is large than I had expected from viewing the New Year's concerts on...

It’s hard to say expectations aren’t high in a city that great masters like Strauss, Mozart and Beethoven call home. The city practically is the center of classical music with the sheer amount of composers who were based here. The Silicon Valley of music if you will. So when a promoter dressed as Mozart encourage me to go to one... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
