Firstly the enthusiastic young men dressed as Strauss and Mozart selling the tickets to the concert are nowhere to be seen when you arrive at Herengasse station. Travelling alone means you need chaperones around the massive Hofburg Palace. After much flagging down people and asking directions eventually I arrived at my destination. It was most definitely worth the 55 euros.... More

attended this based on reviews from others and we werent disappointed. The performance was in a large ballroom with a mixture of mozart and strauss but overall more strauss songs than mozart's (only 3 mozarts if i recall correctly). There were duets and a few clarinet pieces with some funny creative mix eg using the sound of hammering blend in... More

The Mozart Orchestra which performed here with two singers and two dances was quite good. We were in a large ballroom, wiht good acoustics. The orchestra was top-rate, and obviously had performed these pieces many times. The Mozart Clarinet Concerto was outstanding. The dancers somehow managed to perfomr really well in a small area in front of the orchestra. We... More

Although as noted, it was difficult to find, the concert was one of the best I have attended. The venue was lovely. The orchestra and opera singers were superb. It was a very entertaining and light-hearted evening. It was truly a concert to remember.

Outstanding concert.My tips are to get the cheaper seats as there is no difference in sound quality and you can leave more easily.Secondly find out how to get there before you go.it is not well signposted.Finally wear light clothes as the concert hall is very warm.Highly recommended to all.Even if you know nothing about classical music you will recognize most...

Every New Year's Day, my husband watches the Strauss Concert from Vienna on PBS. And every year he said the same thing, "We have to go there sometime." So that's exactly what we did on our trip to Vienna, Austria. I purchased tickets online at http://www.hofburgorchester.at/. After spending a lovely day walking around the city, touring the Schonbrunn Palace and... More
