The place is very nice, you could really feel like a 19th century patron. Be aware though that concerts organized for tourists can be a little frustrating, due to the less than appropriate behaviour some have while assisting. In our case, people were talking, shooting...More

To finally be in such an historic institution after watching it on TV every New Years Day for years was almost overpowering.It is even more beautiful than I had imagined and the wonderful musical and song was heart moving.

Located near the Karlsplatz, the beautiful nineteenth century building has six halls with the biggest able to hold over two thousand people. Needless to say the accoustics are excellent. The performers wear period costumes and the performance involves audience participation. Following the conductor's unpredictable moves...More

Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral)

Simon H
We are thinking about booking the Wiener Mozart Orchester concert here, either directly with the venue or through an agency such a Viator. The main difference appears to be that booking directly you can choose your actual seat, via an agency only by category (although I have read about people getting better seats than category booked?) Also, Viator includes a free CD, no great shakes, but booking direct doesn’t appear to - is that correct? When booking through Viator is the voucher your actual ‘print at home’ ticket or does it have to be exchanged for physical tickets at the box office (I have read that there can be long queues before the concert starts?) booking direct I believe tickets have to be collected anyway. Finally, I have read conflicting advice about dress code, with some saying smart casual, for men; shoes, trousers and collared shirt (no sneakers, jeans etc.) whilst other saying this is largely ignored - which is correct? Thanks in anticipation, Simon H.

I would not have thought that the Viennese would like this at all! But check with the hall management - you never know!
