An enjoyable performance for what it is, but this ensemble is an octet consisting of piano, strings and one flute. What about the 2nd flute, oboes, clarinets, bassoons, horns, trumpets and timpani, to say nothing of the trombones scored for the works in the second half of the programme? Sorry to say it, but this is a con and not... More

The concert was not performed in a concert hall. It's more like an inside patio. So the sound effect was very poor. Also if you have tall people sitting in front of you, you are out of luck...you can only see their heads. The place was small with lots of people crowded in one place. The performance was ok and...

This was a fantastic experience! Music really caressed our ears, a perfect combination of good musicians and excellent acoustic of the alley. If you are in Vienna, you should not miss this!

Too many people in small place. I couldn't concentrate on music. And this place is for tourists. If you want to listen pure art classic, this is not recommended place. 별로였어요. 관광객만 오는 곳이었고 다른 곳에 가기에는 시간이 없어서 그냥 들어갔는데 관광객을 위해서는 좋은 음악이었겠지만 비엔나까지 와서 들을 음악은 아니었어요

There are numerous options for concert venues in Vienna. We went as part of a tour group to a very nice evening concert. The music presented included selections by both Mozart and Strauss. Seats were conventional chairs and comfortable. The music was entertaining and included dancing and singing as well as orchestral works. It was well received by all in... More

We went as a side trip from a Viking Cruise, and all was well except waiting a long time in the cold to get into the hall and climb the 5 flights of steps. The Hall is not that impressive, but once the music starts , who cares, the acoustics are excellent and the Orchestra, while small (10 the evening... More

Went to the Borse Palace tonight and had the BEST time. The orchestra was magnificent fabulous and awesome - and such fun. Somehow we were right in the front row and had a lovely French couple on our right and a lovely American couple on our left with whom we had such great conversations. The dancers and singing performers were... More

The Wein Residence Orchestra and Dancers were great. It was performed in an old palace with the surrounds moving one back in time. It was crowded and sold out. At intermission their is time for bathroom (downstairs) and champagne. The second half of program was Strauss and even the Rudetsky march. A grand highlight of our days in Vienna.

Staying in Josefstadt

Neighbourhood Profile
The eighth district is an older generation’s Vienna at its finest: and this is what makes it popular with locals of all ages. Josefstadt has theatre, small independent shops, romantic passageways, neighbourhood cafés with regular clientele, church squares, town palaces and shady communal gardens. Trendy hangouts have conquered distinctive places such as the Old General Hospital (Altes AKH) and the vaults of overground U6. Theater in der Josefstadt on Josefstädter Strasse is the district’s cultural epicentre. Even if your German isn’t good enough to watch a play, you can marvel at the typical Biedermeier building and take a glimpse into the foyer. Lange Gasse houses an iconic local restaurant at its corner, as well as a legendary sweet shop and a bustling neighbourhood market every Saturday. For small palace atmosphere and a different view on Vienna’s history, make your way to Schönborn garden palace (Palais Schönborn), which houses the Museum of Folk and Folk Art (Volkskundemuseum). Maria-Treu-Platz, with its summer outdoor cafés facing baroque church Maria Treu, and the historic passageway of Lerchenfelder Strasse 13 hide top spots for insiders.
