It seemed appropriate when in Vienna to attend a classical concert. We weren't sure where to go. This one was held in magnificent surroundings of the Hofburg Palace, in a room with at least 60 chandeliers, which created the ambience that transported you back to...More

We went to this concert with friends.Because I am not a classical music fan I did not expect much. To my surprise I enjoyed the concert and was thoroughly entertained.

We watched a good concert at The Imperial Palace. Its for lovers of Strauss. The sopranos were excellent and the small orchestra were superb.

This is a do not miss event while in Vienna! The musicians are some of the best I have ever seen and the singers and ballerinas added another dimension to the evening. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

This was the worst choice we made in a 2 week vacation. Commercialized, impersonal, and a hall packed with cheap banquet chairs, wedged tightly together. Be very certain about the venue before you commit, but better yet - find a different service to provide this...More

The orchestra and vocalists were at least good, but the venue was very poor. It appeared to have been a large ballroom with high ceiling, hard wall surfaces, filled with audience on folding chairs. The room was not acoustically designed for performances, so from at...More

This is a great evening. The palace concert setting is beautiful. The orchestra is great and the singers are excellent. This is a better concert than you get at Schonbrunn.

The fourth district combines elegant tradition with
contemporary style and relaxed living. More than a
dozen town palaces and churches such as St. Charles
Borromeo have added glamour to a neighbourhood known
for its traditional retail and crafts shops, taverns,
cafés. Wieden is also home to Naschmarkt, Vienna’s
largest street market. Many bohemian types have found
their way to Wieden: meet them in trendy cafés and

We were there in the beginning of June,although a few men had jackets, most had on a dress shirt and slacks, and some were in nice polos. It really is a more relaxed event. Hope this helps.

It is ok to dress casually. They are catered for tourists so we are not expected to have our suit and dresses ready. I did notice a few Japanese tourists came well prepared though!
