We just went to see the Vienna Boys Choir at the Sunday mass last week. It was a very poor experience for us since we had not bought tickets before the day of the show. For various reasons, we couldn't do that, but I read that they sold tickets the day of the performance starting at 8:15 A.M. Before we... More

We booked online to hear the Ursuline Mass sung by the Vienna Boys Choir, on a Sunday in October 2013. It was superb. We were seated near the front and had a wonderful view of the altar and the high mass. The Vienna Boys Choir sang from a choir loft on the 3rd level, so they couldn’t be seen, but... More

This was a great event. The Boys Choir is obviously famous and they did not disappoint! When i visited they sang to Mozart which was fantastic! The tickets were 25€ and well worth it! Be advised, if you sit towards the rear of the church (it's a small church) you won't be able to see the choir or orchestra. HOWEVER,... More

We attended the Christmas morning Mass at the Burgkapelle in December and had a wonderful experience. It is hard to look at this as a church service instead of a show, but whether you were there for the spiritual experience or to simply hear some of the world's best in action, you would not have been dissapointed. An English service... More

The MuTh (combination of Music and Theatre) is the name of the recently opened concert hall at the Vienna Boys Choir School at Aufgarten. The acoustics are superb and the seats very comfortable. My only niggle was that I nearly died of heat inside.

The whole experience was flat; including their voices. We are fortunate to have a rich choral tradition and we have enjoyed hugely superior choirs in England at no cost. We felt that they were relying upon their 'reputation'.

My aunt who lives in Vienna ordered tickets for us online for the Holy Mass with the Vienna Boys' Choir at the Hofburgkapelle on Sunday 14 Oct 2012. We picked up the tickets at the Hofburg the day before at one of the times outlined in the email confirmation she received. Our tickets cost 29 Euros each. There are many... More

The reviewer FaithDaisy below stated EXACTLY what I would have stated in my review, word for word. Amazing and well worth the 29euros to get a seat in the chapel. Limited Standing room was free. I went back the next day to take the pictures I have attached...I thought it was very rude to take pictures during service, which many... More

We attended Mass at Burgkapelle at Hofburg Palace (find it through the black and red Swiss Gates in the main courtyard past the Sisi Museum). The boys sang with a small orchestra from the balcony above us. It was like angelic music coming down from heaven! It left me in tears because it was so beautiful. And the boys came... More

This year, we had the privilege of spending our Christmas holiday in Vienna. no visit would be complete without hearing the angelic singing of the Wiener Sängerknaben. WE were able to book tickets for the Christmas morning mass at Hofburgkapelle in Central Vienna on the viennaconcerts.com internet site. The tickets were delivered to our hotel the day before the mass.... More
