The Staatsoper on Ringstrasse in Vienna is one of the most renowned opera houses of the world. It was designed on neo-Renaissance lines by two architects, who were severely criticized because of it's simplicity. Because of this harsh criticism one of these architects committed suicide and the other died of heart trouble before the building was inaugurated in 1869. Later,... More

I was really excited about attending a concert in the opera house and spent time with a vendor choosing seats. However I could only see the orchestra and soloists by leaning forward in my seat and leaning on my chin. When I looked round to see if I could swop seats at the interval I noticed that almost everyone other... More

Visited the historic Vienna's Opera House which is a majestic structure offering music to the entire world. Very impressive architecture on the exterior and interior. A must see of all the attractions and landmarks in the city. A place that continues to offer musical concerts and tickets are available for purchase. Located in the old town section of the city....

To see the State Opera House is a dream, the location has a majestic architecture. In July and August the Opera House is on a holiday, visitors just can make a tour in the building. Tours take an hour with a guide, which I recommended every visitor to do it. Don't forget to have a coffee and a piece of... More

A cheap ticket costs 49€ but still nice seats if you sit high up. 1 hour 45 minutes long, 3 encores. Played Strauss to finish. The musicians were dressed in period costumes, as well as theater staff. Good choice and a must see, imho.

Beautiful building. The guided tour is worth the money (student discounts offered up to 27 year old with proof of student/apprentice status; proof not needed for teenagers) You get to seat down at the opera Hall, go backstage and see the imperial balcony and the imperial room. It lasts about 40 minutes. Well worth it especially if you are a... More

Wow, what an impressive building. We wanted to take a tour and maybe a show here, but we ran out of time in Vienna, so it's something we will have to plan for next time.

Went to summer Mozart Concert at Staatsoper. Wonderful music and an opportunity to see opera house out of season. Son (24) loved music and location of Mission Impossible 5

We bought tickets for performance of a selection of Mozart. The Opera house itself has to be seen and it comes alive with the music. The conductor got everything out of the orchestra and the audience and it was a fantastic experience.

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood 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 center. 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.
