Not a scam. Average performance.

When we arrived in Vienna we knew we had to take in a classical music show. We met a gentleman in period costume selling tickets to a Mozart and Strauss Concert so had to buy two. Finding the venue was a bit of a stretch but when we got directions, we had a meal at the pub down the road... More

We bought our tickets from the ticket sellers near Stephansdom at a discounted rate. Whatever you do, don't agree at the initial price ( you are expected to bargain a bit ). The performance was not spectacular, but it was good enough. If you are newbie to classical music, do go. If you are however expecting something special, this is... More

We were approached by ticket sellers while visiting the Dome. They were all over the place approaching every tourist. At first we were hesitant. He offered us 4 tickets for the price of 3 for the next day Opera. The hall was small than I expected. I expected that people will wear formal attires like in the movies (my first... More

We were not sure about the quality of this, until we arrived. But professional musicians played Mozart and Strauss beautifully.

We bought the tickets while we were walking around the city center and was approached by a charming young man in a dirty looking yellow waist coat. We wanted to watch a classical music presentation so we bought the tickets. Yep, we got the €10 off and was offered the free drinks during the interval. We were told that the... More

We were a little nervous buying four tickets at discount (for €44 each) with the promise of a free drink each at intermission written on the back of one of the tickets. Read mixed reviews here after buying tickets, thought we'd been scammed WRONG. The concert was as advertised in the Kaiser Saal in the Haus der Industrie. This beautiful... More

Almost a tourist trap... The music is very nice, though. Good option if you can buy the ticket for up to EUR 35 or so. They could avoid trying to make jokes... People are coming to listen to classical music...

Let me preface this by saying I wanted to go to a classical music concert while in Vienna. The tacky costumes of the salespeople on the street should have been a giveaway. I was horrified at the "comedy" and how the whole show was purely aimed at tourists. The "ballet" was ridiculous. They had all of two square metres to... More

In a moment of total lapse in judgment, my wife and I decided to buy two tickets from some guy on the street to this concert. Normally we know better than to, say, eat at the restaurants where the guy outside is begging every passerby to come in. However, we had wanted to see some sort of classical music during... 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.
