7 members of a chamber orchestra with a first lead violinist who is controlled and very serious but, as it turns out, has a good sense of humour. The hall is beautiful and the repertoire included the well known classics and 2 fabulous singers to...More

Terrible. First, the concert hall is impossible to find. Had the police drive me there after 45 min of being sent in all directions by locals. Second, the hall is the size of a living room. Third, the performance was extremely tacky. Overpriced nonsense

It was excellent. I, as an 18 year old, and my friend, also an 18 year old and a Latin music lover, loved it. It’s not really about age nor about nationality, but about true music love. It had everything, a bit of comedy, magnificent...More

A very joyable, great and authentic experience. We bought the tickets from street vendors and honestly I didnt have very high expectations. But I can now say without any doubt that this is a must do when in Vienna!

The 5 strings, piano and 2 singers put on a delightful program. Under crystal chandeliers, the music ranged from Mozart to Vivaldi and on to Strauss & Grieg. By the time the Blue Danube was played the entire audience was enthusiastically clapping to the music.

There are plenty of options for classical music in Vienna but few, if any, have what the Schonborn has. The musicians and singers are remarkably talented and the venue is as elegant and comfortable as it gets. While that same thing could be said for...More

Located in the Innere Stadt district of Vienna next to Freyung,, Palais Schönborn-Batthyány is a baroque palace with wonderful interior. It is a historic building.
