I have heard 17 concerts in the Musikverein in the past 6 years. I have heard the Wiener Philharmoniker, the Wiener Symphoniker, the Tonkünstler-Orchester des Niederösterreich, Bruckner Orchestra of Linz; as well as our own Cleveland Orchestra and Philadelphia Orchestra. The acoustics of the Musikverein are a marvel to hear: flawless top-to-bottom balance, flawless front-to-back balance, great dynamic range, wonderful... More

We had pre-booked this in the UK. We had arrived from Budapest where we had seen a ballet in the State Opera a few days, so we a little spoilt and were expecting good things. It did not disappoint the building inside and out was magnificent. We collected our tickets without any issues. We had booked a performance in Brahms... More

Truly a must for anybody with any interest in classical music. The concert and the acoustics were great, and the grand interior of the hall spectacular.

We took this tour yesterday and it was fascinating. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We were lucky to have a small group. About 15 of us. She said sometimes there's 45 people! We saw three rooms including the famous golden hall. The building was being made ready for a dance festival with lots of construction going on... More

If you have ever watched on tv the Viennese Philomonic Orchestra New Years Day Concert you will have an idea of the magnificent Gold Hall. But you will also be amazed at the other parts of this beautiful building too! The gold hall is smaller then you realise as the Tv stretches it. The art work is fantastic. The acoustics... More

We watch the New Year's Day concert from Vienna every year without fail on the tv. What a joy it is to visit the concert hall where it all happens. Lovely to sit in the main concert hall. Some members of the orchestra rehearsing too. Great experience.

We were lucky enough to make two visits to the Musikverein. One was for a guided tour which I would thoroughly recommend. Our guide was incredibly informative and it was great to be able to tour the building and sit in some of the halls including the golden hall and hear all about their origins. Our second visit was for... More

I booked well in advance for a Thursday night Concert of Weber Mozart in Brahms Hall. We sat in the 8th row - it was a special occasion. The crowds nceet was very good and the performers were excellent. At times they interacted with the audience which made the Concert that much more enjoyable. Yes, this is targeted at tourists...

This building is famous throughout the world from the televised New Year's Day Concert and what a joy to be able to go around and see the halls (and the underground venues which I didn't even know existed!) in their glory. The guide was very informative and answered all the questions we put to her with good humour. We sat... 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.
