Though not a fan of Opera, I took the guided tour of the opera and really enjoyed it. Takes about 40 minutes and cost 7.5 euros. Check the hours on their website.

Truth to be told I was not a big fan of opera, simply since I never take the time to see one live. But standing in front of this opera house, seeing the crowd, the atmosphere really want me to go in... I wanted to try what it feels like... too bad I only have a very limited time in... More

I along with my friend watched a musical play - lasted 3 hours but was completely worth it. We stood in a queue to get the best seats (you should also do that). The tickets price wary widely but we took the standing tickets (worth 3-5 euros). The ambience is just great, feels royal and special. Plus the kind of... More

This building is simply outstanding inside and outside. get there early to enjoy a glass of champagne before the concert and walk in the footsteps of histories most famous composers. There cannot be a better place to listen to Mozart

Culture, culture, culture. Real Austrian European culture. Worth the effort even if you are not an avid opera fan. Beautiful building. Traditional middle Europe.

Great evening. Recommend to buy tickets online in advance to get cheaper prices. Alternatively you can also arrive on the day and queue on the side of the opera 2 hours before the show to get "standing" tickets at a very cheap price.

I didn't book the tickets in advance due the prices, but I got there in time to get the " promotional" one and had the time of my life. Watching Macbeth was something I will never forget. Even tough our tickets were the "discount" one, we never felt any different approach from the people working there. They were always ready... More

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.
