A must-visit if you like any opera or ballet. The auditorium glitters like most 19th century houses. What most impressed me was the vast architectural scale of the foyers, staircases and bars. Everywhere was cool on a hot day. It was possible to get a...More

Very beautiful building, extraordinary decoration both outside and the interior. The 3 stars are for the fact that they didn't have the programme in English although they do sell it when you book online. So basically you select the language online, pay for it and...More

Visited here for my wife’s birthday who is wheelchair bound. Fantastic building with lots of history. Access was good and staff really helpful. Opera was wonderfully choreographed and audibly wonderful. Nice classy eateries inside serving drinks and snacks. Highly Recommend

One of the most beautiful buildings in Vienna, and there are lots of them. On the ring strasse, right next to karlsplatz, easy to acces by public transport.

If you expect that the scenery and the costumes are always as classical as are the exterior and interiors of the Wiener Staatsoper and the plots of the operas you may be deeply disappointed. Trying to book tickets in advance for the days of our...More

Our seats weren't the greatest but still worth the 37 euro price. If you visit Vienna this is a must do activity. La Boheme was excellently performed and the Wiener Staatsoper is overall an amazing experience. Even if you can't see the opera, a tor...More

Get in line for the box office at the Opera House to avoid disappointment. We arrived an hour before it opened as there were hundreds of people for the various language tours. Tour was quite short but well worth it.
