    It has been a great way to start the new year by attending a concert of classical music with our children. The Routard guide suggests this orchestra as one of the best in Vienna, which made us select this concert for this morning. The venue, the Garden Lichtestein Palace, is a

    Dear Carla W, thank you for your review! We are glad that you enjoyed the music. The classical concerts in Vienna are visited by many tourists, both in groups and individually. We do our best to provide the best possible experience for everyone, but unfortunately this is not always easy. Of course, a tour group would like to sit together. Likewise a family with 2 children. Our evening staff tried on the basis of the booking list every evening to create a plan to offer each guest a good place in the booked category. We are very sorry that you were not satisfied with your seat. We will do our best to create more transparency here and accordingly upload the sittings and seating plans of our concert halls.We understand your disappointment that there were no introductions and/or free program to know which pieces were played. To explain: Traditionally, programs are not handed out as printed papers, neither are the pieces announced. You will not find paper printouts in the State Opera, or at the Vienna Philharmonics. A lot of newly found orchestras and ensembles break with this tradition. We are currently working on a compromise, so that you will be able to see/download the program each day on our website. This would solve that problem, not break with the tradition of a typical classical concert and will also be more ecological responsible than printing hundreds of booklets every evening. This will be possible in 2020. Best regards, Vienna Hofburg-Orchestra

    We came to enjoy the music but there was live dancing and/or singing with every song which really distracted from the music. There were also a lot of jokes and it just felt really amateur. It also seemed to be full of mainly older age tours. I wouldn't recommend for people

    Dear LondonExPat1, Thank you for your feedback. The classical concerts in Vienna are visited by many tourists, both in groups and individually. We do our best to provide the best possible experience for everyone, but unfortunately this is not always easy. Those few jokes in the concert go back to the times of Strauss and they are kind of part of the Austrian concert history. It was not made for commercial reasons. The age of people should not be a factor when listening to classical music. The works of Mozart and Strauss are made for anyone who likes classical music. Best regards, Vienna Hofburg-Orchestra

    The concert was amazing and we were fortunate that it was held in the Grand Room of the palace (since the other room was booked for another event.) The beauty of the palace coupled with the music which was exceptional made this a highlight of my trip. Purchased ticket online and
