Overview
More
Founded in 1498 by Emperor Maximilian I, this internationally renowned youth choir has been heard around the world ever since. In Vienna, there are two key venues to experience the Vienna Boys Choir: their own concert hall, MuTh, and the Imperial Chapel in the first district. At the MuTh, you will be able to the choir's newest programmes; in addition, the choir regularly presents world music and fully staged children's operas at MuTh. The boys take turns at singing Mass in the Imperial Chapel (Sundays at 9.15 am, September - June; the Chapel is closed in from July to mid-September); note that this is a sung Church service, with the musicians performing on the organ loft, out of sight for most of the service. The boys perform alongside the men of the State Opera Chorus and the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. After the service, the boys descend to sing one motet in front of the altar.

I didn’t really enjoy this. The chapel is pretty drab and hasn’t benefitted from 19th century “restoration”. We seemed to have the B list of the Vienna boys choir. At least I didn’t have a terrible seat. I was in the “Haus Oratorium” with a...More

The venue is beautiful and historic. The seating is fine for listening, but not good for seeing much of what is going on. A bit pricey and a bit long. A memorable experience, but wouldn’t do it again.

We went to the MuTh to see them perform the Gute Hirten. This event was truely fantastic. We booked in advance and we were completely overwhelmed by their performance. It was a major highlight for us while in Vienna.

1. You will not see the Vienna Boys Choir for most of the mass because they are singing from one of the upper floors. I couldn’t tell which floor from my seat, which was in Row 14 from the front. Not a bad view, but...More

Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The
second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from
medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from
pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current
hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative
crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city centre and
