The beauty and grandeur of the Hofberg demands some level of etiquette. Sadly, the complete lack of crowd control meant a few people had their arms up the entire time filming and photographing with cameras casting ugly bright blue lights throughout the performance and a...More

This show is mainly for tourists. I picked it because it was modestly priced and close to our hotel, although it was very hard to find the actual entrance in the Hofsburg palace area. The music was very good with singers and some comedy moments....More

Attended this concert at the Wiener Hofburg Palace. Beautiful music in Austria! There were between 15 and 20 pieces of music and about 1/3 included opera singers. There was even audience participation/interaction. The final piece was...ta dah! The Blue Danube!

I will make it clear that the decision to listen to the orchestra was made last minute. Our river cruise company (Viking) most likely added it as an included excursion as a "gift" to make up for inconveniences caused by having to change ships due...More

The fourth district combines elegant tradition with

Borromeo have added glamour to a neighbourhood known
for its traditional retail and crafts shops, taverns,
