Not only were we lucky enough to win the New Year concert lottery tickets, but had what we considered to be the best seats in the house-loge seating no more than 10 feet from the orchestra. We were close enough to read the scores! The performance was flawless, something everybody should experience once in their lifetime (and based on ticket... More

From the first notes they played I was completely captivated by the Vienna Philharmonic. They were amazing and flawless in every way. The performance hall was lovely but not all seats are very good. It is an older hall so seats are not very comfortable and if someone tall sits in front you can't see at all. We had expensive... More

Needless to say Vienna and music go together in so many ways. Whether you like Strauss and the waltz or Mozart or other classical music this is the city for you. As we walked by the Opera House they were projecting a live stream of the opera being performed at that moment inside the building onto a screen on the... More

First summer concert of the night, MUST ATTEND! Get there early as it gets packed. Beautiful gardens and museum to venture through beforehand. Family friendly and fun time with friends!

Don't miss the chance to hear the Vienna Philharmonic in the Musikverein, it is a real treat and a once in a lifetime experience. There are very few orchestras that come close to perfection, but the Vienna Philharmonic is definitely one of them. Tickets are hard to get, but worth every penny.

The music was really good, the place itself is very beautiful, but even ordering 3 months a prior - couldn't get the tickets to good places, and the seats we've ordered were really small (like no place for legs) and couldn't see anything.

I am told that over half a million people request tickets for this concert (actually a series of three) and only about 5,000 seats were available. So when we had the opportunity to attend, we jumped at it (even at 400 Euros a ticket). There is no concert in the classical music world that can compare to the Vienna Philharmonic's... More

If you are into music this is a must-visit place. It is important to check out what is scheduled and to visit accordingly.
